如Passenger - Let her go的開頭一般~
輕輕的鋼琴聲搭著底片滑過放影機的聲響勾勒出這首述說成長歌曲的輪廓~
歌詞簡單直述卻深刻的直切入每個人的心靈~
成長永遠不是一件容易的事~
有苦~有樂~有喜~有悲~
有相聚~有離別~有重逢~有永別~
這些最終都成為形塑出我們為人的樣貌及對人處事的態度~

丹麥樂團Lukas Graham是以主唱Lukas Graham Forchhammer的名字為團名的靈魂流行樂團~
2011年末樂團在Youtube上傳在Lukas家中拍攝的兩首歌曲"Criminal Mind"和"Drunk in the Morning"後正式成立~
原本只是在朋友間的Facebook上流傳但很快就傳遍哥本哈根的地下音樂圈~
10月發行的首支單曲為他們帶來商業上的成功~
他們第一次的丹麥巡迴票房賣破三萬張而當時他們連第一張專題都還沒有正式推出~

2012年首張專輯發行後即賣破4白金~
專輯共推出三張單曲"Drunk in the Morning"~冠軍單曲"Better Than Yourself"及亞軍單曲"Ordinary Things"~
也連帶大開他們在歐洲圈的知名度進而邁向國際~

Lukas Graham - 7 Years

Once I was seven years old my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Once I was seven years old
It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure
Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
Go get yourself a wife or you'll be lonely
Once I was eleven years old

I always had that dream like my daddy before me
So I started writing songs, I started writing stories
Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me
Cause only those I really love will ever really know me

Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was 20 years old

(Lukas Graham!!!)

I only see my goals, I don't believe in failure
Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major
I got my boys with me at least those in favor
And if we don't meet before I leave, I hope I'll see you later

Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
I was writing about everything, I saw before me
Once I was 20 years old
Soon we'll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold
We've traveled around the world and we're still roaming
Soon we'll be 30 years old

I'm still learning about life
My woman brought children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
And I can tell them stories
Most of my boys are with me
Some are still out seeking glory
And some I had to leave behind
My brother I'm still sorry

Soon I'll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
Remember life and then your life becomes a better one
I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
I hope my children come and visit, once or twice a month

Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
Soon I'll be 60 years old
Soon I'll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me
Soon I'll be 60 years old

Once I was seven years old, my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely
Once I was seven years old
Once I was seven years old
