* "A Bowler Hat" from ''Theatre/PacificOvertures''. No specific ages are mentioned, but the lyrics imply that Kayama is gradually growing older while adopting Western clothes and manners, and the makeup applied to him between verses confirms this impression.

* Relient K's "Deathbed" opens with the narrator as a dying old man (this section is the chorus, making it a [[AnachronicOrder non-linear]] age-progression song), then jumps back to 1941 with him at age 8, then 14, 21, and finally some unspecified point in his old age, noting such events as his [[ParentalAbandonment father's abandonment]], his ShotgunWedding, and eventual divorce. The album this song is from was released in 2007, so assuming the character's death took place in that year, he would be around 74 at the end.

* Music/ImogenHeap's "The Listening Chair" is sung in various styles as it progresses. At first the lyrics are childish and fluffy however as she ages it becomes more serious and often times rather melancholy.

Finally, in his old age, the man looks back and discovers that his lack of trust has made his life miserable.

* Do You Want to Build a Snowman from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. 5(Anna) 8 (Elsa) -> 11 (Anna) 14 (Elsa) -> 15 (Anna) 18 (Elsa)

to:

* Do ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'':
** "Do
You Want to Build a Snowman from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. 5(Anna) Snowman" has Anna at 5 & Elsa at 8 (Elsa) -> Anna at age 11 (Anna) 14 (Elsa) -> & Elsa at age 14-> Anna at age 15 (Anna) 18 (Elsa) & Elsa at age 18. It starts when Elsa is forced to shut herself from her sister, passes through the years with Anna continuously asking Elsa if she wants to play only to be refused or ignored, and ends [[MoodWhiplash with their parents death]].
** The very early CutSong "We Know Better" was an age progression song starting with a 3 year old Elsa after Anna's birth. It continues until Anna is 19 and Elsa is 22. The song starts off about how Anna and Elsa are best friends who defy what a princess is "supposed" to be like. The dark reprise has the local villagers start to become wary of their future queen and her ice powers. At the same time 12-year old Anna's parents tell her to act more princess-like and lead by example. This is the beginning of the rift in their relationship and the rest of the song has them drifting apart.

* Lorrie Morgan's "Something in Red" is a variation where what changes isn't so much age exactly (although the singer and her man do age) but the nature of their relationship, with each stage represented by a different color for the clothing she goes to buy: red (seduction), green (envy of another woman who caught his eye), white (marriage), blue (baby clothes), and finally red again (rekindling their romance). Aside from one line and a tense change, it also has a [[DualMeaningChorus Dual Meaning Verse]].
