"She Floated Away" as written by and Grant Hart....
With her grandmother's face and her father's brown eyes
Her own force of will to her mother's surprise
A whole look about her that says that she may
She lifted her arms and she floated away

She floated away, yeah, she floated away
She lifted her arms and she floated away
She don't give a damn what the other girls say
She lifted her arms and she floated away

"Let me talk to you, mother," she tried to confess
"Go ahead, honey and wear the white dress
Don't let traditions go stand in your way"
She lifted her arms and she floated away

She floated away, yeah, she floated away
She lifted her arms and she floated away
Don't give a damn what the other girls say
She lifted her arms and she floated away

Well, a man has two reasons for things that he does
The first one is pride and the second one is love
All understandings must come by this way
She lifted her arms and she floated away

She floated away, yeah, she floated away
She lifted her arms and she floated away
She don't give a damn what the other girls say
She lifted her arms and she floated away

    My InterpretationNo comments?
    This is one of my favorite Hüsker Dü songs, easily. And it seems the band members used to like this song as well.

    I love the harmony of the two voices in this one. I feel it is about a lady who seeks her own independence. It also seems to be about her relation with her family, and how she changed.
