when i grow up


fever ray – when i grow up dan lissvik remix (right click, save us)

this track is probably best known for its bassnectar rework, which is badass obviously, but i feel like with this version Dan (of the band Studio) captures the emotion of the lyrics more – ocean/seashells/etc.

i really like these lyrics – check them out after the 23. and the OG video for posterity

When I grow up, I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
Thats what Ill do, throwing out a boomerang
Waiting for it to come back to me

When I grow up, I want to live near the sea
Crab claws and bottles of rum
Thats what ill have staring at the seashell
Waiting for it to embrace me

I put my soul in what I do
Last night I drew a funny man
with dark eyes and a hanging tongue
It goes way bad, I never liked a sad look
From someone who wants to be loved by you

I’m very good with plants
When my friends are away
they let me keep the soil moist
On the seventh day I rest
for a minute or two
then back on my feet and cry for you oooh oh

You’ve got cucumbers on your eyes
Too much time spent on nothing
waiting for a moment to arise

The face in the ceiling and arms too long
I wait for him to catch me

Waiting for you to embrace me
