7 Years

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

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 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 favor
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 traveled around the world and we're still roaming
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 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 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 mama told me,
"Go make yourself some friends or you'll be lonely."
Once I was seven years old

Once I was seven years old

Take The World By Storm

I've always dreamt of travel
Why should we die where we were born? (born)
Some road are laid with gravel
Sometimes you gotta build your own (own)

I wanna tear down boundaries
I wanna greet my enemies
I wanna see what I haven't seen
Cause I know there's more

I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)
I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)

I don't have any answers
The more know the more I grow (grow)
I don't know where I'm going
But I'mma search cause I see hope (hope)

I wanna tear down boundaries
I wanna greet my enemies
I wanna see what I haven't seen
Cause I know there's more

I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)
I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)

There's got to be more than this
Gotta figure out how to jump the wall
I wanna live and learn
Don't matter if I land or if I fall
I know I might return
At least I know I'll be walking tall
I'm not afraid
Cause I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)
I take the world by storm (storm, storm, storm)

Mama Said

When Mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was ok
Mama told us we are good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
'Cause we were good kids

Remember asking both my mom and dad
Why we never traveled to exotic lands
We only ever really visit friends
Nothing to tell when the summer ends
We never really went buying clothes
Folks were passing on this stuff in plenty loads
New shoes once a year and then
Out to play ball so we could ruin them

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was ok
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
'Cause we were good kids

Don't get me wrong I didn't have it bad
I got enough loving from my mom and dad
But I don't think they really understood
When I said that I wanted the deal in Hollywood
I told them I'll be singing on TV
The other kids were calling me a wannabe
The older kids they started bugging me
But now they all standing right in front of me

When mama said that it was okay
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was ok
Mama told us we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
'Cause we were good kids

I know which place I'm from
I know my home
When I'm in doubt and struggling
That's where I go
An old friend can give advice
When new friends only know a half story
That's why I'm always keep them tight
And why I'm okay
... I said I'm OK
You know what my mama said
You know what she told me

My mama said that it was ok
Mama said that it was quite alright
Our kind of people had a bed for the night
And it was ok
Mama said that we were good kids
And daddy told us never listen to the ones
Pointing nasty fingers and making fun
'Cause we were good kids

Mama said that it was okay
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba
When mama said that it was okay
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba,
Ba-ba-ba, ba-ba-ba ba-ba
When mama said that it was okay...

Happy Home

Mama called about the paper turns out they wrote about me
Now my broken heart's the only thing that's broke about me
So many people should have seen what we got going on
I only wanna put my heart and my life in songs
Writing about the pain I felt with my daddy gone
About the emptiness I felt when I sat alone
About the happiness i feel when I sing it loud
He should have heard the noise we made with the happy crowd
Did my grandaddy know he taught me what a poem was
How you can use a sentence or just a simple pause
What will I say when my kids ask me who my daddy was
I thought about it for a while and I'm at a loss
Knowing that I'm gonna live my whole life without him
I found out a lot of things I never knew about him
All I know is that I'll never really be alone
Cause we gotta lot of love and a happy home

Magazines are writing stuff but I don't ever read them
Some of the folks I used to know would see and start believing
That I would pass them by on streets and never reach to greet them
I still remember folks even though I rarely meet them
Don't you know I miss the times when we used to hang
Before twenty deep depended on a single man
Before a single heart was broken by a single blow
Before all our careers depended on a single show
I grew up with a lot of love in a happy home
Now I got a lot of cash and I'm on a road
I realize privacy's becoming difficult
It's all right now but what about when I'm old
I know my good friends now they'll last
the same ones that stood by me when my daddy past
All I know is that we'll never really be alone
Cause we got a lot of love and a happy home

I write a lot of songs will anybody ever read them
You hear them on the radio but will you really read them
Why do we have our idols and why do we wanna be them
After we see them on TV we really wanna meet them
Don't you think they miss the time when they used to hang
Before a fan base depended on a single man
Before a single heart was broken by a single show
Who's gonna stand who's gonna fall I really wanna know
I grew up with a lot of love in a happy home
My daddy use to play me vinyl but now daddy's gone
I used to practice with my mommy on the piano
I still get nervous every time I know she's at a show
Now my family comes first before everyone
I had the perfect dad I wanna be the perfect son
Though I really feel sometimes I am on my own
I know I got a lot of love and a happy home

Hayo

I don't know what you're trying to prove
But she obviously don't feel tied down to you
You think she's so right, but hey we know it's so wrong
She might be a girl but everybody knows
They're like "Hayo she wants some"
Everybody says "Hayo she wants some" she wants some

It might seem hard when I put it like this
But maybe you should treat her like the five that she is
You've got feelings involved and you're not seeing straight
Your girl's been around that's what everybody says
They're like "Hayo she wants some"
Everybody's like "Hayo she wants some"

(Now, I'mma break it down for you)

I see you've got your problems and you're trying to make it through
I can tell you everybody's got them, but not as bad as you
"Hayo she wants some"
And everybody's like "Hayo she wants some"

I'm sorry I'm the one to let you know what's going on
You think that she's a keeper but you've got to pass her on
You say you know her well, and she's just your type
She might be good in bed, but she's not a good bite
You see a good girl, will let them know she's got a man
And start to walk away if they don't really understand
She'll be housecleaning, and cakebaking
And kissing you before babymaking
Don't you know what everybody's saying 'bout that girl?

They're like "Hayo she wants some"
Don't you know they're singing "Hayo she wants some"?
And nothing's really sad, but you cause they're all singing it
"Hayo she wants some"
And even I'm tired of singing them lines when I see her like
"Hayo she wants some" she wants some
("Hayo she wants some")
("Hayo she wants some")
("Hayo she wants some")
("Hayo she wants some")
("Hayo she wants some")
("Hayo she wants some")

When I Woke Up... (Interlude)

I took her home, I swear that she was single
When I woke up, the ring was on her finger
She heard 'round town that I don't kiss and tell
And on top of that the ladies say I do it well
When I woke up, the ring was on her finger

Don't You Worry 'Bout Me

Hey my friend, how you've been?
What are you going through?
What is this trouble, that's troubling you?

He tried to turn the thing around
And asked me how I've been
I said, I really don't know where to begin

I saw my life come crashing down
I crawled, I walked, I'm flying now
I found my strength on my knees

Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me

A lot of people told me
When daddy passed away
Go take some time off
But I've got no time to waste

Don't you have a dream too
Some goals you've got to make
You may feel small sometimes
It don't mean you can't be great

I saw my life come crashing down
I crawled, I walked, I'm flying now
I found my strength on my knees

So, don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry, worry, worry
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me

Sometimes your life can bring you down
Sometimes you run for miles and miles
Sometimes you scream without hope

Now once you feel you hit the ground
Then victory comes back around
And you'll be proud to let them know

Don't worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Oh please
Don't you worry, worry, worry, worry
No, don't you, don't you, worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me
Don't you worry 'bout me

What Happened To Perfect

I can see it in your eyes as I am stumbling home
You living with the man that you no longer know
You forgot to smile as I passed you by
Now we sitting down for dinner we got nothing to say
It's like I am watching you slowly slipping away
From me, from me

Remember when I used to make you laugh
And every joke was better than the last
Tell me how to bring you back to this
Maybe I just need to reminisce and work it out

What happened to perfect
What happened to us
We used to be worth it
We never gave up
It wasn't on purpose
But hurts like it was
Nobody deserves this
What happened to perfect

If you left me baby where would you go
I can't imagine you ever being alone
I am a jealous man but I try to understand
So many things to say I don't know where to start
I can't pick up the pieces of a crumbling heart
So true, so true

Remember when I used to make you laugh
And every joke was better than the last
Tell me how to bring you back to this
Maybe I just need to reminisce and work it out

What happened to perfect
What happened to us
We used to be worth it
We never gave up
It wasn't on purpose
But it hurts like it was
Nobody deserves this
What happened to perfect
What happened to perfect

What's under the surface
It used to be love
Would you call if you heard this
Would you know it was us
It wasn't on purpose
But it hurts like it was
Nobody deserves this
What happened to perfect
Nobody deserves this

I can see it in your eyes as I am stumbling home
You living with a man you no longer know
You forgot to smile

Playtime

We started with a clean slate
Came to stake our claim
Looking for a good time
On the streets that reek of fame

Where everybody looks good
They're better dressed than me
The waitress brings us cold beers
But she wants to see ID

I swear she saw me coming
Well maybe in an hour or two
She said: "Boy do you like downtown?"
What else was I to do?

You know I tipped her, and
Slipped, slipped her the number
I said I just got into town and I wanna
Hang out and light up some marijuana
You wanna? You wanna? You?

She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
And maybe I can make you beg right
She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
Oh baby I'm gon' make you beg right

She took me to a dive bar
The kind that never close
The cheapest drink was Bourbon shots
So we loaded up on those
Her friend was serving all night
I liked her serving slow
When locking up she told me: "sit"
While she told the rest to go

So I tipped her and
Slipped, slipped her the number
I said I just got into town and I wanna
Hang out and light up some marijuana
You wanna? You wanna? You?

She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
And maybe I can make you beg right
She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
Oh baby I'm gon' make you beg right

If a girl has got to go
And work all day (work all day)
I'm gonna do my best to help her find a little time to play

She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
And maybe I can make you beg right
She said when I get off it's playtime
I'll show you where to go on late nights
And later I'll give you the bed ride
Oh baby I'm gon' make you beg right

Strip No More

I met this girl, I think she likes me
I must admit I like her too
She said she'd be working tonight
I said cool I'll drop by and she looked at me, smiled, and said: That's great, baby
When I showed up, I was confused

I said: Hey, where's that girl I talked to yesterday?
Now I said: Hey, where is Destiny, is that her name?
I can't believe she would leave
Without me, Destiny

How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhh
How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh

I met your friends, I think they like me
(They like me) Ooh!
But they don't do it like you do
They told me you were graduated, why didn't you say it?
That's so cool
I'm just so proud you made it through

But I said: Hey, where's that girl I talked to yesterday?
Now I said: Hey, where is Destiny, is that her name?
I can't believe she would leave
Without me, Destiny

How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh
How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh

I was at table three, b.y.o.b. and
Destiny sat next to me
She asked me if I liked her dance
I told her "I'm your biggest fan"
Then she took me by the hand, and turned this boy into a man
Inside a private room, I hope you understand
I was like uh uh (uh uh)
She made me go wee hee (wee hee)
She made me go uh uh uuuh (uh uh uuuh)
Now I'm not mad that you don't want me
I'm just stuck here wondering
I wanna know

How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh
How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh
How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh
How come you don't strip no more?
Uh-uh-uh uhhhhh

Why don't you strip no more, don't strip no more
Baby don't strip no more, don't strip no more
Don't strip no more, baby don't strip no more
Don't strip no more baby...
How come you don't strip no more?

You're Not There

I only got you in my stories
And you know I tell them right
I remember you and I, when I'm awake at night
So give it up for fallen glory
I never got to say goodbye
I wish I could ask for just a bit more time

Every step I take, you used to lead the way
Now I'm terrified to face it on my own

You're not there
To celebrate the man that you made
You're not there
To share in my success and mistakes
Is it fair?
You'll never know the person I'll be
You're not there
With me

Though I know that you're not there
I still write you all these songs
It's like you got the right to know what's going on
As I struggle to remember how you used to look and sound
At times I still think I can spot you in the crowd

Every step I take, you used to lead the way
And now I'm terrified to face it on my own

You're not there
To celebrate the man that you made
You're not there
To share in my success and mistakes
Is it fair?
You'll never know the person I'll be
You're not there
With me

Time can heal your wounds if you're strong and standing tall
I've been doing all of that, it didn't help at all
They say, "You'll grow older, and it'll get better still."
Yes, I will, but no, it won't
They don't get it, 'cause

You're not there
To celebrate the man that you made
You're not there
To share in my success and mistakes
Is it fair?
You'll never know the person I'll be
You're not there
With me

Funeral

When it's my time, I know you'll tailor a new suit for me
And buy a new tie, so I'll look this good
Boy, you were right
You said only them good ones die young
Never in my life did I look this good

Everyone welcome to my funeral
Everyone I know better be wasted
You know I would pour one up
Cause the way I lived, it was amazing
Uh-uh-uh
All of my friends are in the room
Uh-uh-uh
Party for me - I'd party too

You're all on my tab
Bartenders pour out the whiskeys on me
And don't be so sad
Cause I lived this good
We were closer
Now it's over
Oh it doesn't mean it's closure
I see you and I love you
I'll be watching out above you

Everyone welcome to my funeral
Everyone I know better be wasted
You know I would pour one up
Cause the way I lived, it was amazing
Uh-uh-uh
All of my friends are in the room
Uh-uh-uh
Party for me - I'd party too
Uh-uh-uh
All of my friends are in the room
Uh-uh-uh
Party for me - I'd party too

Everyone welcome to my funeral
Everyone I know better be wasted
You know I would pour one up
Cause the way I lived, it was amazing
Welcome to my funeral
Everyone I know better be wasted
You know I would pour one up
Cause the way I lived, it was amazing
Welcome to my funeral
Everyone I know better be wasted
You know I would pour one up
Cause the way I lived, it was amazing
So welcome to my funeral
Welcome to my funeral
