Verse 1
Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
Once I was seven years old
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Once I was twenty years old.
My story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was twenty years old
Verse 6
(Lukas Graham!)
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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 traveled around the world and we're still roaming
Soon we'll be thirty years old
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Soon I'll be sixty years old, my daddy got sixty-one
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
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
Once I was seven years old, my mama told me,
"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
Once I was seven years old
Verse 13
Once I was seven years old
