Cryptic Wisdom - 7 Years (Lukas Graham Remix) lyrics

[Hook] Once I was seven years old My father told me, I'll never leave again You won't be lonely Once I was seven years old [Verse 1] I was a kid, I was seven Never knew you or knew where you would be What was the pen, too innocent? Nothing you said was making any sense I was like damn, who is this man? Standing before me saying take a chance Suddenly everything I thought I knew about the world Was taken when I shook his hand I was so mad, didn't know why Why was my name all tatted on your side? Why did you mess with the bliss over me and my sister We're cool without you, doin' fine We came around, you came around Told us you would never ever leave Heart on my sleeve, letting it bleed Waiting for you again, cause I believe [Hook] Once I was eleven years old My momma told me, I won't do this again Need you to go please Once I was eleven years old [Verse 2] I wasn't there, I didn't care Moving around a lot and couldn't bare Everyone wanted to fix it and took me away From my sister to live on a prayer Breaking the law, getting expelled Didn't believe in nothing, you could tell Wanted to fail, gunnin' for jail Wanted to k** my father in a cell I was a mess, that I confess Too young to bottle this up in my chest Too young to do what I was doing Who knew that I would've been a little bit depressed Got into blow, got into dope Made an investment with nothing to show It was the only thing I had control over And it was all over whenever it go [Hook] Once I was twenty years old My father wrote me Son, I'm sorry that you never got to know me Once I was twenty years old [Verse 3] I didn't know then, and I don't know know Why it was hard for me to write it down Why it was easier to say out loud And whenever I try to write I feel a cloud Sooner or later I gave it up One way or another, can't say enough When I met my brother and told him I wanted to hear from you, that was a major bluff I was right in the middle of using, abusing and losing myself I knew not of sobriety I wasn't ready to meet him I didn't feel like I could be a role model entirely But inside of me I was like, damn I relate And I thought I could be of some help And it didn't dawn on me I couldn't be somebody's light if I don't love myself [Hook] But soon I'll be sixty years old And will I still hold on To everything that happened and be so cold? Soon I'll be sixty years old Soon I'll be sixty years old
