I need a song about growing up, preferably about a boy. Any suggestions?

I'm getting married and looking making a video of photos of my fiance and I as we were growing up. I've got a song for myself, but I'm looking for a song to play while the portion of the video about him is playing.

    Tim McGraw Dont take the girl

    Johnny's daddy was taking him fishing

    When he was eight years old.

    A little girl came through the front gate

    Holding a fishing pole

    His dad looked down and smiled

    Said we can't leave her behind

    Son I know you don't want her to go

    But someday you'll change your mind

    And Johnny said

    Take Jimmy Johnson

    Take Tommy Thompson

    Take my best friend Bo-

    Take anybody that you want as

    Long as she don't go

    Take any boy in the world

    Daddy please- don't take the girl

    Same old boy

    Same sweet girl

    Ten years down the road

    He held her tight and kissed her lips

    In front of the picture show

    Stranger came and pulled a gun

    Grabbed her by the arm

    Said if you do what I tell you to do

    There won't be any harm

    And Johnny said

    Take my money

    Take my wallet

    Take my credit cards

    Here's the watch that my grandpa gave me

    Here's the keys to my car

    Mister give it a whirl

    But please-don't take the girl

    Same old boy

    Same sweet girl

    Five years down the road

    There's gonna be a little one

    And she says it's time to go

    Docter says the baby's fine

    But you'll have to leave

    Cause his momma's fading fast

    And Johnny hit his knees

    And there he prayed

    Take the very breath you gave me

    Take the heart from my chest

    I'll gladly take her place

    If you'll let me

    Make this my last request

    Take me out of this world

    God please-don't take the girl

    Johnny's daddy was taking him fishing

    When he was eight years old...

    If he was born in a small town...Small Town by John Mellencamp. I was born in a small town and I've seen that one in lots of slideshows and I liked it.

    The Tension and the Terror by Straylight Run is a great song about young love and growing up. Here's the lyrics:


    Also I think that Stand By Me (Ben King) has lots of "coming of age" overtones in it because of the movie of the same name(if you've seen it). And Hootie and the Blowfish "Hold My Hand" is a good song but not strictly about growing up.

    Congratulations on your future marriage. I wish you well!

    Growin' Up by Bruce Springsteen

    I stood stone-like at midnight

    suspended in my masquerade

    I combed my hair till it was just

    right and commanded the

    night brigade

    I was open to pain and crossed

    by the rain and i walked on a

    crooked crutch

    I strolled all alone through a

    fallout zone and came out with

    my soul untouched

    I hid in the clouded wrath of

    the crowd but when they

    said "Sit down," I stood up.

    Ooh...growin' up

    The flag of piracy flew from

    my mast, my sails were set

    wing to wing

    I had a jukebox graduate for

    first mate, she couldn't sail

    but she sure could sing,

    I pushed B-52 and bombed em'

    with the blues with my gear

    set stubborn on standing

    I broke all the rules, strafed

    my old high school, never once

    gave thought to landing,

    I hid in the clouded warmth of

    the crowd but when they said,

    "Come down," I threw up,

    Ooh...growin up.

    I took long month vacations in

    the stratosphere and you know

    it's really hard to hold your


    I swear I lost everything I

    ever loved or feared, I was the

    comic kid in full costume dress,

    Well, my feet they finally took

    root in the earth but i got me

    a nice little place in the stars

    And I swear I found the key to

    the universe in the engine of

    an old parked car

    I hid in the mother breast of

    the crowd but when they said,

    "Pull up," i pulled up

    Ooh...growin' up. Ooh...

    growin' up

    It kinda relies upon how old you're, and in case you could sing some thing from the coach. in case your in middle college and may sing some thing from the coach sing possibly or day after today from Annie. in case your in severe-college and may sing some thing from the coach sing trouble-free street. in case you won't be able to sing some thing from the coach, and your a mezzo (like me) sing part of your international. some people say its over done, notwithstanding it has landed me some good roles when I sing it. nicely in any case desire this helped and good success. :)
