  1. Nice. I haven’t heard this song before but I like it. It has a great story to tell and of course you told it well.

  2. I love it! I have not heard it before either, but I love the story in the song.

    Beautiful song and a great arrangement. Your voice is amazing in these ballads. I think you are part Selkie. Now that I think about it, that film of Ruth by the water… hmmmm.
