Spending much of my early childhood in New Zealand made a big impression on me. The weather was good and the winter’s warmer. Out the back of where we lived in Auckland there was a little bamboo forest in which me and my friends used to play in. It was idyllic and to this day I miss it so much.
When my father decided that he needed to be back in England we went to a very different climate, but I used to go on walks from Hartlepool up to Dalton Piercy through the open fields and long grass and in that grass my brother and I would hide it the grass playing hide and seek. I miss those times too. Summer is my favourite time of the year, especially when I was a child with six weeks of school holidays. What is not to like? I know that in England we are not set up for summer, very few of us have air conditioning, but love the summer even if sometimes it can get a little too hot at times.
The summer time goes far too quickly and a little piece of me dies when it goes. I really enjoyed recording this song and as I came to the end of recording the song, we have just had a rare occurance of endless blue skies, which made it a great time to shoot the video.
The song Iis also available to buy or stream from iTunes, Amazon etc.
