"Boys To Men" as written by Terry Lewis and James Samuel Harris Iii....
Growing up can be a pain
You're not an man until you come of age
We've given up our teenage years
In the effort to pursue our career

Who assumes responsibility
Of having to support our families
Who's protecting us from harm
Is there anyone around
That we can trust

So we search for answers to our questions
Looking for answers
No answers but we're taught a lesson everytime
Through mistakes we've learned to gather wisdom
Life's responsibility falls in our hands

Keep on learning
Keep on growing
'Cause wisdom helps us understand
We're maturing
Without knowing
These are the things that change boys to men

Oh the goals we set may exceed reality
'Cause failure always a possibility
Who can tell us that we're wrong
It's up to us to figure out
What life is all about

So we search for answers to questions
Looking for the answers
No answers but we're taught a lesson everytime
Through mistakes we've learned to gather wisdom
'Cause wisdom helps us see our responsibility.

    General CommentOkay, I'm a biiiiig New Edition fan.
    1. They're hot.
    2. They can sing.
    3. They're gorgeous! lol

    Anyway, this song is defining exactly WHAT changes boys to men. As most women know, boys play games and do stupid things. Men try to be on their game and act with some kind of sense.
    I love this song because it speaks volumes about what women really want.

    **Damn, those sweet memories**
