First Aid Kit – When I Grow Up (Live @ Berlin Festival 2012)


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 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 That’s what I’ll have Staring at a seashell Waiting for it to embrace me
ohooho… I put my soul into what I do Last night I drew a funny man With dog eyes and a hanging tongue It goes way back I never like that sad look From someone who wants to be loved by you
ohooho… 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 to call for you
ohooho… You’ve got cucumbers on your eyes Too much time spent on nothing Waiting for this moment to arise Face in the ceiling With arms too long I’m waiting for him… To catch me
ohooho…
