Sing, Sang, Sung – “The Ballad Of Serenity” From “Firefly”

As usual when I post one of these, I actually have a decent amount to say but no time to say it in. I was busy watching “Firefly” with a friend and lost track of time. So here’s a wonderful song from a wonderful show, killed far too early. I would write about it, but that would take forever. It’s a great show.

Also, if anyone finds the long version of the song that includes the lyrics I will put under the words “Apparently, there’s a long version and here are the lyrics,” let me know. Because I can’t find it and I want to hear it. Anyway, this is the theme song to the show, a Joss Whedon creation if that helps your decision to watch it. Oh, and the song is sung by Sonny Rhodes. Possibly co-written by him, too? I forget. ANYWAY. Going to bed. Night.

“The Ballad of Serenity” – “Firefly”

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me.

There’s no place I can be
Since I’ve found Serenity

And you can’t take the sky from me.

Apparently, there’s a long version and here are the lyrics

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain’t comin’ back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can’t take the sky from me.

Leave the men where they lay
They’ll never see another day
Lost my soul, lost my dream
You can’t take the sky from me.

I feel the black reaching out
I hear its song without a doubt
I still hear and I still see
That you can’t take the sky from me.

Lost my love, lost my land
Lost the last place I could stand
There’s no place I can be
Since I’ve found Serenity

And you can’t take the sky from me.
