7.- When I Grow Up
Fever Ray Lyrics


When I grow up
I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That's what I'll do
Throwing out 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
That's what I'll 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

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

love this song, I am captive to it.

I understand it as a sung from an adult who still waiting for a sign of affection (or a show of comfort) that they've had since childhood; a hug from mom/dad or the like. Maybe the person the narrator sings to abdondoned them, or died, or maybe they failed to return the love the child felt for them.

By the verses:
1-even when I grow up I'll be waiting for you to come (back) to me
2-for all the things I'll have, I'll be "waiting for it |you| to embrace me"
3-I did things for you, drew a picture, but I didn't like it because "I never liked a sad look
from someone who wants to be loved by you" - like I do.
4-I'm an adult/my friends trust me/I am responsible/I work- I stay occupied because when I have time to think, I cry for you.
5-(Cucumber facial?)you spent your time preparing for things that didn't happen, that didn't involve me. I was afraid in the dark.
And I'm...
Waiting for you to embrace me.

Naaa..
Que buen recuerdo..
Volver de la escuela turno tarde..
Mi vieja me preparaba la merienda..
Me iba con la taza y el pan con manteca para mí pieza..
Prendia la pley y lo llamaba a mi amigo..
Horas y horas jugando..
Sábado y domingo ni hablar



Facundo Caceres

Nostalgia pura..
Quisiera volver a esos tiempos..
Mi amigo..
Mis viejos..
La casa de mis viejos..
Hoy ya no tengo mas a mis viejos..
Y no lo veo más a mi amigo.
😢😥😢..
Como pasa volando el tiempo y la vida..

When I grow up, I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That's what I'll do, throwing out 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
That's what i'll 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
