Marko Savolainen Beautiful harp and a wonderful voice. I can get very emotional listening to this, in a good way. Favorite track: Mal De Mer.

Track Name: The Merchant Royal
They brought you back home on the train last night
They sought you out and you had lost the fight
4,000 miles of Atlantic sea wasn't enough to stop you hurting me

We loved so loud
It rolls like thunder
Overboard, we go under
I'll show you where's safe to hide
Mark the sails, this Navy's pride

I wash the colours from your pale dead skin
The blue and red and white they dressed you in
They say the ocean took its toll on you
Your body battered red and white and blue

"It's true Sarge, he took it out on me
You knew Sarge, that he took it out on me'

We loved so loud
It rolled like thunder
Overboard, we go under
I'll show you where's safe to hide
Marked on sails, this Navy's pride

Love so loud
Track Name: Mal De Mer
Broken spires and steeples
Faithless deceived people
You only leave what you create
Only our love can fill the hate they leave

It's mal de mer my seasick sailor
I'll carry you home and save you
Part of my words still out at sea
And I can't recall what doesn't speak for me

Watch guards calling for you, secrets you never knew
And if my words should pierce your sails
Just remember all else pales against you

It's mal de mer my seasick sailor
I'll carry you home and save you
Part of my words still out at sea
I can't recall what doesn't speak for me
