about

I wrote this song in 2015 for my band Storm Seeker, together with my very talented drummer Marius Bornfleth. When I lived in Scotland last year, the producer Nassif Younes and I decided to re-record this song in a hurdy gurdy style. Here's the result!

lyrics

I've seen many men wandering
all strong and brave and keen
Seen them growing into rulers
but I long for the sea
Heard a ship came from North
to our harbour for a day
and before misfortune knows
I'll be on my way

I'm all set to veer away
and I'm all set to go astray
All burdens I will leave ashore
to find what I've been longing for

Don't tell anyone
that this night I'll be gone
Greeting the eternal blue
right at the break of dawn
Sailing t'wards the unknown
with my crew on the sea
And the day that I return
a hero I shall be

I'm all set to veer away
and I'm all set to go astray
All burdens I will leave ashore
to find what I've been longing for
