Just a note about one lyric that seems to have a lot of people perplexed, I offer another take on this: Flag Aquarius121 on May 08, 2011. I was afraid in the dark.
Login with Google Error: That's true. The next verse is I think Karin fantasising about growing up all over again from childhood and and wondering what path her life could have take a turn had she chosen a different course.
Lyrics licensed by LyricFind. Maybe the person the narrator sings to abdondoned them, or died, or maybe they failed to return the love the child felt for them. Remember Me.
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. Nominate as Song of the Day. Log in. I like this interpretation.
Fever Ray. SongMeanings is a place for discussion and discovery. Though,her "God" is Nature, I guess: Start a Wiki. One of the best I heard lately...
General Comment i love this song! Artists - F. I interpret this song as follows: The child put her soul into everything she does, like her drawing of a of a funny man...
It's taking attention away from her as the beloved person is focused more on herself. The theme's of age and alternate perspectives are all over this album.
The first verse is from her daughter's perspective - as with many Fever Ray songs, the child's perspective is often represented - the daughter is perhaps fascinated by Australia and maybe has books on it and talks about it constantly in the way kids become obsessed so wholly with things. Though I do agree with all the other opinions here... Why not add your own?
There was an error.
General Comment it kinda sounds like what god would say to the population. Just as God did, after world's creation...
