"The Fox" as written by Malin Elinor Julia Dahlstrom and Gustaf Sture Ivar Karl�f....
Whenever she is 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 ?
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
They're so heavy on my back, oh you should know

Catch some sleep

I wanna find the eagle's nest
Oh take me with you (oh, oh)
Oh, and I've been waiting a lifetime for this
And I am ready (oh, oh)
Oh, best believe me I've been up all night
They call me crazy (ooh, ooh)
But I wanna see what the sky looks like
From your view (uh oh, uh oh, whoa)

But I saw
Your face carved in clay
And I saw (she saw)
It outlined against a purple sky
It goes loud and deep in me
Loud and deep
My home
Is on that cliff

I wanna find the eagle's nest
Oh take me with you (oh, oh)
Oh, I've been waiting a lifetime for this
And I am ready (uh oh, uh oh)
Whoa, forever wanderer, I wandered all my life
They never knew me (no, no)
Oh, I wanna see what the sky looks like
From your view (uh oh, uh oh, whoa)

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 (oh)
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

I've grown a handsome tall tree

    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.
