"The Fox" as written by Malin Elinor Julia Dahlstrom and Gustaf Sture Ivar Karl�f....
Whenever she's weary, she climbs uphill
And crosses a dark trail and there she finds the fox
In the wooden glade
She lies by a rock and she's red
She smells of violets and picea
She flicks her ears as I whisper

I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
And I want to bear a fruit for you
And I've carried your fears and your hopes, father
It's so heavy on my back, oh you should know
Catch some sleep

I want to find the eagle's nest
Oh take me with you, (Oh oh...)
And I've been waiting a lifetime for this
And I'm ready, (Oh oh...)
It doesn't leave me, I've been up all night
They call me crazy, (Ooh ooh...)
But I want to see what the sky looks like
From your view, (Oh oh...)

But I saw your face carved in clay
And I saw (she saw) it outlined against
A purple sky, it goes loud and deep, beneath
Loud and deep,
My home is on that cliff

I want to find the eagle's nest
Oh take me with you, (Oh oh...)
I've been waiting a lifetime for this
And I'm ready, (Oh oh...)
Whenever I wonder what I wanted all my life,
They never knew me, (No oh oh, no oh oh)
I want to see what the sky looks like
From your view, (Oh oh...)

I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
And I want to bear a fruit for you
And I've carried your fears and your hopes, father
I'll conquer them for me and you
I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
And I want to bear a fruit for you
And I've carried your fears and your hopes, father
I will conquer them for me and you

    My InterpretationAn open letter to parents.

    Reminds me a little of my own situation. Growing away from my single mother and doing my own thing. She fears and has many hopes for me and I am striving to be who I am, and succeeding in my life, although my goals may differ from what she believe they should be.

    "I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
    And I want to bear a fruit for you" - looking to strive in your life and give your mom a gift in return for her being there your entire life
    "And I've carried your fears and your hopes, father
    I'll conquer them for me and you" - dad has fears and hopes for you but it's okay. I will conquer them and you'll see, father, no need to worry about me.
