The Bombadils “Little Days” – they grow up so quick

It is, perhaps, not a particularly well-kept secret that children do grow up – and seemingly at a faster rate than is reasonable.   Luke Fraser and Sarah Frank – aka The Bombadils (for well-documented Lord of the Rings-related reasons) – can be forgiven though for commenting on it in song, because it does generally come as a surprise nonetheless.  One minute they are as cute as a button, the next minute they’re fully-fledged adults in their own right.  Which is as it should be… but even so there’s the bitter-sweetness of it all: “I’m lost in the thought, “Someday you’ll move on” / To chase your own dreams and sing your own song“.

Little Days‘ is taken from The Bombadils next album ‘Dear Friend‘, which is out on January 13th 2023.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
