"Float" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
It's a beautiful world but everyone's insane :: Either you swim or either you fade :: It's a revolution time we're sleeping at the wheel :: Apocalypse child in a nuclear field :: We want to change the world but not what holds us back :: I want to be for you what I've never had :: And all of this time I was just trying to reach you :: Through the rain traffic :: As you |oat into space :: Your white eyes hide your face :: As you float in between - I am with you :: If you leave :: Fragile to the waves - vicissitudes of days :: When I am with you I feel a little brave

The madness and the wars the circles that we run :: Confusion we import look what we have become :: And all of this time I was just trying to reach you :: Through the rain traffic :: As you float into space :: Your white eyes hide your face :: As you float in between - I die with you :: If you leave - I die with you I die with you

    General CommentThe lyrics are hardly open to interpretation; they explain themselves quite well. He describes himself following a girl, and protecting her, where ever she travels. With her, he feels empowered and enlightened... however, he may not completely have the girl as "his". This song cries out to the woman, simply asking her whether she wants him there or not.

    General Commentwow..just wow, this is my favorite song from the golden state album - i love it - and i love the lyrics - one of the best lines i ever read was :

    I want to be for you
    what I've never had

    Sadly, this is so true and applies for me all the time i try to get into a new relationship - mostly i give 10 times more than i ever recieve back.... oh my thats life

    The song itself is probably (imho) about trying to pursuade a girl or woman whatever that you (he) is the right person for her...

    And all of this time I was just trying to reach you

    he tries hard, really hard and does everything he can that she will finally choses him and gives him a chances

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song about a man's devotion to his lover.
    He has see the evil, self-destructive, and sinful world. We only preach morality and change to feel righteous, but really we embrace this sin to satisfy our weakness. The world would die without this false satisfaction (afterall we are only human right?).
    This lesson he has learned about life and he is trying to explain it to his lover to protect her in hopes that she will not have to learn the hard way as he did.
    He admits he is fragile but goes on to say how brave he feels in this dangerous world when he is with her.
    In th chorus he is comforting her, telling her that in this rain filled world that cries with sorrow he sees her white eyes (her innocence) as she floats through space (not knowing of the evil around her) and he is saying that he will protect her even if she dies ("leaves"). He is willing to die for this woman because he wants to preserve her innocence. His love goes beyond the limits of this world. He will protect her even in death by protecting her in life.

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't more comments on this song!

    To me, when I first heard this song, I thought of a man devoting himself to his dying lover.
    If she dies, he will go with her.
