“7 Summers” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
In the first verse, Morgan Wallen wonders about the relationship that was and what could have been. He knew that the girl always wanted to move south, to a much brighter, sunnier, and active place. So she did. She had to leave him and the beauty of East Tennessee behind. Sounds like that was the end of their story. Morgan wonders how she is doing now–a big diamond ring on her hand? a baby? or even two? a big white house and a long driveway enough for a couple of cars? It is nice to see that he has nothing but good visions of this girl.
The first verse of the song blew up on TikTok.
The singer wonders if she thinks about him at all–at least even when she is drunk. He knows that this thought is far-fetched. It has been 7 years since she moved on. She probably has that part of the memory completely overwritten by new memories. Bu booze does weird things to one’s brain.
Morgan Wallen realizes that seven years ago they were “younger and dumber,” but they did have a wisp of hope for a future together. He reminisces the times they just went to the river and enjoyed a beer and a swim along with their friends. Those memories, from seven summers ago, play like an old VHS tape in his mind, just like the lyric video above.
Morgan Wallen has made some fortune for himself here in his hometown too. But she had big dreams and city aspirations. So they might not have worked out nonetheless. The singer is the classic cut of a Tennessee-born and raised–enjoys a drink every Friday with the same friends at the same pub, and owning a few acres of land.
She was never made for the Southers Comfort, and the story goes on.
