Artiestinformatie

Land   Denemarken

De band Lukas Graham bestaat uit leadzanger Lukas Forchhammer, Magnus Larsson, Kasper Daugaard en Mark Falgren. De band viel op nadat ze een aantal nummers op YouTube plaatsten die in thuisland Denemarken al snel werden opgepakt. Met Drunk In The Morning en Better Than Yourself (Criminal Mind) Part 2 scoorden ze in 2012 nummer 1-hits in hun thuisland.


Eind 2012 verscheen hun titelloze debuutalbum en daarvan verscheen in 2015 een nieuwe versie. Mama Said, Strip You More en 7 Years wisten eveneens op de eerste plek van de Deense hitlijst te komen. Ook in Nederland wordt 7 Years hun Top 40-debuut en bereiken ze eind januari 2016 voor twee weken de eerste plaats. Mama Said blijft steken in de Tipparade en krijgt in 2017 een opvolger met You're Not There.


Songtekst

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 the glory
Just always seemed to bore me
Cause only those I really love
Will ever really know me

Once I was twenty years old
My story got told
Before the morning sun
When life was lonely
Once I was twenty 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 favour
And if we don't meet before I leave
I hope I'll see you later

Once I was twenty years old
My story got told
I was writing about everything
I saw before me
Once I was twenty years old

Soon we'll be thirty years old
Our songs have been sold
We've travelled around the world
And we're still rolling
Soon we'll be thirty 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 sixty years old
My daddy got sixty-one
Remember life and then
Your life becomes a better one
I made the 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 sixty 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 sixty years old

Soon I'll be sixty 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 sixty 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
