List of songs about kids growing up
#1. Nicole Noderman’s song “slow down”
This video tops the list as it captures almost all the precious moments that a parent goes through. The first day that we hold the baby in hand to the day they graduate and leave the house for ever. This video begins with a mother holding her twin babies and shows each and every milestone of them very beautifully. How they start crawling and walking and learning to ride a bike to losing a tooth and finally graduating. The mother just feels the pain in how fast the time just passes away and she can do nothing to stop it. Its heart warming and breaking at the same time to listen to the beautiful music at the same time watch the mother’s pain.
#2. Nanci Griffith – “Turn Around“
Yet another song that would definitely bring tears to your eyes. The lyrics are so perfect that one would have a feeling that the song has been written for them. The songs revolves around a baby girl and how she grows out of her cocoon so fast and enters her own new world. The mother describes the pain by stating that once she just turns around and the baby is two years old and yet again she does the same turns around and the baby turns four and again she just turns around and the baby is a grown women now. The song very beautifully captures the life of a girl child and how precious those moments are in the parents life which cannot be brought back by anything.
#3. Trace Adkins – “ Then they do”
We all experience difficult days and sleepless nights with our little ones. We often pray and hope for one quite day so we can have a cup of coffee in piece. This song will get you to your soul. It reminds you that the day you have been praying for would come and that too so fast that you would wish you had a few more days and nights with your naughty toddler. The moment they start achieving their individual milestones, no messy house, everything is just so quite and still then would be the time you would wish for a little more days of your toddler time. Time is like a passing sand it stops for no one. So the song clearly states that have at it and enjoy the precious moments of your kids life while you can other wise it would be too late.
#4. Sonu Nigam’s – Meri duniya tu hi re from Heyy Babyy
This song in the beautiful voice of Sonu Nigam depicts a father’s journey along with his child and suddenly how his life takes a 360° turn when she enters her life and everything in his life now revolves around her. He misses those times when she is not around and wishes time to stay still for eternity so he can love his little one in abundance.
#5. Shankar Mahadevan – Dilbaro from Raazi
Such a melodies song by the great singer would definitely bring tears to your eyes. This song is sung by a girl who is now fully grown up and is leaving the house for her future life but asks her dad to bring back her childhood and the times when he taught her how to walk. Even the simplest of the words shows the girls pain of how difficult an adult life is and how precious those moments of childhood with her father was. She urges him to hold her hand and guide her through her new life just the way he taught her to take her first step in life years back. Dilbaro is a jolt down memory lines for all of us who are seeing our children grow and feeling the pain now of the time passing so fast in front of our eyes. Now do we realise the pain our parents must have felt when were all grown up ready to face the world and leave their house. Just how easy it was to say don’t worry mom or dad I will handle. How these mere words would have toppled their world. Take a moment and thank your parent for all the sacrifices they made to let you be an independent and confident human being.
So folks walking down memory lane is quite pleasurable and that too if we have a song running in the back ground that takes us back to the actual moments in our life. I personally experienced goosebumps listening to these melodies and was drenched in tears. I hope you would have the same mesmerizing experience.
