Juno Movie Soundtrack - Kimya Dawson - Tree Hugger lyrics

Kimya Dawson - Tree Hugger

The flower said, "I wish I was a tree,"
The tree said, "I wish I could be
A different kind of tree,"
The cat wished that it was a bee,
The turtle wished that it could fly
Really high into the sky,
Over rooftops and then dive
Deep into the sea.

And in the sea there was a fish,
A fish who had a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a big pink flower on it.
And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a big pink flower on it.

And the flower
Would be its offering
Of love
To the desert
And the desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all
Appreciate the effort.

Et le jackalope a dit
Je voudrais être un yéti
Pour voler dans la nuit
Et m'en aller loin d'ici
Mais le yéti a dit
Je voudrais être un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir rentrer dans la mer
De tous les requins.

[translation:
And the Jackalope said
"I want to be a yeti
to steal into the night
and go far away from here"
but the yeti said
"I want to be a sea monster
and dive into the sea
of all the sharks."]

And the rattlesnake said,
"I wish I had hands so
I could hug you like a man."
And then the cactus said,
"Don't you understand,
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That'll stab you like a thousand knives.
A hug would be nice,
But hug my flower with your eyes."

The flower said, "I wish I was a tree,"
The tree said, "I wish I could be
A different kind of tree,
The cat wished that it was a bee,
The turtle wished that it could fly
Really high into the sky,
Over rooftops and then dive
Deep into the sea.

And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.
And in the sea there is a fish,
A fish that has a secret wish,
A wish to be a big cactus
With a pink flower on it.

And the flower
Would be its offering
To the desert,
That it loved.
And the desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all
Appreciate the effort.
