First Aid Kit - When I Grow Up (Fever Ray Cover)

There is so much to say about this song. I will start with telling you that it is one of my most listened to tracks EVER. No exaggerations and no joke. I just saw them perform on Sunday night and was blown away. There is a review coming soon, but for now just listen to this song. The lyrics are below but they are just as capable, if not more, of writing their own meaningful and beautiful lyrics and songs.
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
