TUNE Don Alexander - Long Shadows
Written for my daughter when she was about 5 years old .
It took 3 locations to come up with the song.
She was running down the garden one sunny evening calling my name.
Walking down Lyncombe Vale in Bath with her following the stream there.
The same year we were in Cornwall walking on a beach as the sun was getting lower in the sky.
My daughter is now 11 years old and growing up very quickly!
I've got a 5 year old daughter too, which drew me in - I cherish every moment cos as you say, the time flies, but for every phase that passes something delightful takes its place! Hope that's still true at 11 years old - anyway, lovely song, nice to see it in the chart - If you listen to my Christmas song my daughter makes a guest appearance at the end - she was 3 then!! As you say 'Don't grow up too fast....'
Discovered amazing tunes yesterday, discovered Don Alexander today. I'm pleased I did- both are exceptional.
