7 Summers - Morgan Wallen

The Experience: Were we dumb or just younger, who knows? Our love wasn't fake, but maybe just not mature enough to stand the test of our own growth...

The Vibe: Melancholy. Nostalgia.

The Topic: Loss. Growth.

The Tension: We still said forever (We were sincereVS. I know we both knew better (But people grown up, change and move on).



Music video: Carefree summer romance crumbles under the onslaught of time. It's not that she left him or he left her. They just both moved on. The change is oh so slow in real life, but brutally sudden in the music video.

The Meaning of 7 Summers: Some loves don't stand the test of time. That's why you don't promise forever right away. You might say it: we still said forever. You might even mean it maybe: were we dumb or just younger who knows? Time goes by. People grow and change. But deep down, you at least want to be remembered:  wonder when you're drinking if you find yourself thinking about that boy from East Tennessee. You want it to have been real even if it was doomed to fade. That much at least - the past you shared seven summers ago - should be forever.

Ask yourself: Can you cherish the memory of every relationship?

LYRICS:

Yeah, you used to talk about
Getting even further South
Somewhere where the summer lasted all year 'round
Probably got a big ol' diamond on your hand right now
Maybe a baby or a couple by now
Long driveway to a big white house

But I wonder when you're drinking if you
Find yourself thinking about
That boy from East Tennessee
And I know we both knew better
But we still said forever
And that was seven summers
Of Coke and Southern Comfort
Were we dumb or just younger, who knows?
Back then, you used to love the river
And sippin' on a sixer with me
Does it ever make you sad to know
That was seven summers ago?

Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Yeah, I bet your daddy's so proud
Of how his little girl turned out
Think she dodged a bullet
Of a good old boy like me
'Cause I still
Go drinkin', same friends on Friday
Bought a few acres, couple roads off the highway
Guess you never saw things my way anyway

But I wonder when you're drinking if you
Find yourself thinking about
That boy from East Tennessee
And I know we both knew better
But we still said forever
And that was seven summers
Of Coke and Southern Comfort
Were we dumb or just younger, who knows?
Back then, you used to love the river
And sippin' on a sixer with me
Does it ever make you sad to know
That was seven summers ago?

Ooh
Seven summers ago (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
Seven summers ago (Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)

Yeah, I wonder when you're drinking if you
Find yourself thinking about
That boy from East Tennessee
And I know we both knew better
But we still said forever
And that was seven summers
Of Coke and Southern Comfort
Were we dumb or just younger, who knows?
Back then, you used to love the river
And sippin' on a sixer with me
Does it ever make you sad to know
That was seven summers ago?

Ooh
Seven summers ago (Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh)
Seven summers ago (Ooh, ooh-ooh)
