about

The title of "Robber's Daughter" is a reference to Astrid Lindgren's book RONIA, THE ROBBER'S DAUGHTER

lyrics

little flower, bright coin, you’re a robber’s daughter
every road I walk down seems to lead me to the water

do I drink
or do I swim
do I slip
and tumble in

buttercup I wonder if I’ll get to meet you
will you be my weakness, will you be my sweet tooth

could I learn
to be so little
build a ship
inside a bottle

will you change me darling so completely
a lucky charm to make me someone new
what do I lose if you transform me
and what do I transform into

are you just a figment of my fancy
the vision of a shadow that I threw
or will you turn up unexpected
turn out to be true

will they say your mama couldn’t live without you
don’t know if you’re real but I do dream about you

if you make
yourself at home
we’ll make an empire
of our own

little flower, bright coin, you’re a robber’s daughter
every road I walk down seems to lead me to the same old troubled water
do I drink or do I swim
do I slip and tumble in

do I drink
or do I swim
do I slip
and tumble in
