I have to confess…I don’t accomplish a whole lot for the few minutes each time the song “7 Years” by Lukas Graham comes on. It’s one of those songs I just kinda get “lost” in.
It was a hit a couple of years ago in his native homeland of Denmark. And Lukas Graham Forchhammer says “7 Years” as a song “about his life so far and what he hopes to achieve in the future. The reason the lyrics go as far as the age of 60 is because his father died at 61 and he needed to “pass it to believe it.” He continues: “It’s a song about growing older. I’m also coming to a realisation that being a father is the most important thing.”
Check out his performance on the Ellen Show earlier this week.
