Is “Safe” by Miranda Lambert the theme song for Nora or Hedda?
Miranda Lambert’s song “Safe” is a better representation of Nora from Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House than Hedda from his Hedda Gabler. The song begins with, “Just like the fringe on my boots, you move with every step I take” (Lambert). Likewise, Nora and her husband have equal dominance and work together; Torvald refers to them as, “We two…” rather than stating that it is only because of him that they are not in debt (Ibsen 2). In Hedda’s case, she and her husband could not even spend enough time ...view middle of the document...

Additionally, the line, “We get prettier with time” represents how Nora and her family are finally starting to make money and have nice things, while Hedda and her husband seem rather distant, even on their honeymoon (Lambert). Since Hedda prefers to be superior, she would not, “find a way to free [her husband’s] hands [and] wash them clean” (Lambert). However, Nora cares a lot about helping her family, as Torvald tells her, “You ha[ve] the best intentions to please us all, and that’s the main thing” (Ibsen 5).
At the end of A Doll’s House, Nora realizes that she has been living as a doll for the family, which fits the line, “I follow you just like a shadow,” because a doll carries out the actions that a person holding the doll makes it do (Lambert). Furthermore, the line, “I wanna hold you like a handful of diamond and pearls that I guide with my life or die trying” relates to how Nora, for all these years, appears to be the “typical housewife,” meanwhile treating him with love (Lambert). Nonetheless, by the end of the play, Nora is done living a life like a doll and ends up leaving the family because she does not believe she is fitted to raise the children and she “must stand quite alone if [she] is to understand [her]self and everything about [her]” (Ibsen 67). Although she does not die trying, she puts in all her effort to love and care for her husband and family, however realizes it is not the right choice.
