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

PandaMonium Reviews Every U.S. Saturn Game

Came for the spooky hand gestures. Was not disappointed.

Kenneth Demeester

Physically she is on stage, mentally, she is so somewhere else in the nowhere .. This is a true example of being fully into a performance. Thanks for existing !!


My friend who was there at the set still talks about it with extreme reverence. Suffice to say that it was his favorite set in Coachella history for him


I love how she uses her hands. Adds more power to the whole concept.

Hugh Manne

Fever Ray was a captivating performer. We need more like her, though she is totally unique.

Petunia Supreme

Ring0fSaturn was????

Kenny Wu

Look how badass she is once she starts playing what I assume are the keyboards


This is, IMO, probably the best live Fever Ray video on YouTube. The band had refined the production of their live set and the close-up shots give you a great sense of her profound intensity.

This song will stay with me forever. She sounds just like the songs from her album :D
