"She Floats" as written by and Vanessa Carlton....
Watchin' puddles in the rain.
There's no better place to lay.
And she's as fine as dandelions, blowing in the wind.
She's not think bout anything

She floats
She floats
Floats

Wearin' black patent Mary Janes
She steps out into the rain
But she's as dry, as clear blue skys, swallowin' you whole.
Got no secrets though I'm told

She floats
She floats
Floats

She's as fine as dandelions, blowing in the wind
She's not thinking she's listening

She floats
She floats
Floats
Floats
She floats
She floats
Floats
Floats

    General CommentWell the "little kids in the background screaming" are actually Vanessa and her producer/boyfriend, Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind. They screamed a bunch of times and they multiplied and smoothed it with a computer. Cool, huh?

    General Comment"the euphoria of being dead" the idea that once you end your life, you're released from all your troubles and preoccupations.

    General CommentI heard that at one concert she said it was about a ghost in her closet. But that may not be true. It sounds like she's talking about a ghost though.

    General CommentI agree with badsrx7. That sounds like a very plausible explanation.

    General CommentI think this song is beautiful. Except the part with all of the little kids screaming just reminds me of amusment parks where little kids on the shoe rollercoasters scream...

    General CommentI think the all the screaming is very unnecessary, but nevertheless, a very good song.
