"White Foxes" as written by and Susanne Sundfor....
Poses, poses, that's all you are to me
Roses, roses, that's all you're offering me

And oh I wish to god that the earth would turn cold
And my heart would forget it's made of glass
And all the pretty tulips would disappear
And never disturb me again

You gave me my very first gun
I'll go out and hunt the hidden dome
With white foxes, with white foxes

Freeze

Hunger, hunger, is the purest sin
It is an empty church in a crowded bin

I've wept and I've stumbled,
I fought and I craved for the gravy of your soul
But all I want to do now is walk among
The barren trees and fields of snow

You gave me my very first gun
I'll go out and hunt the hidden dome
With white foxes, with white foxes

Freeze
Freeze

My eye is my sanctuary
My eye is my sanctuary
My eye is my sanctuary
My eye is my sanctuary

    My Interpretationof course it's about relationships, typical situation when somebody waits for someone to see their feelings, but by the time they receive a response, a feeling back, they are already tired and don't want what they wished for in the first place
    yet Susanne Sundformanaged to wrap this situation up in such delicate, powerful words
    and the way she expressed that exhaustion, that anger inside: "I wish to God that the earth would turn cold" and the chorus
    the line "And my heart would forget it's made of glass" probably means this: it pains her that she has become callous (as to stop feeling sadness), but if she stopped thinking of it, she would be ok with her "glass heart"

    General CommentDoes anyone have any interpretations for the music video? It's really tough to decipher...love this song though. This artist needs more recognition.
