Into the Black

I had something big planned for this post, but it just seemed like too much commentary around the following lyrics, so maybe I’ll add my commentary and thoughts in a later post. For now, I’m just sharing these lyrics. I love them, and they do seem to talk to me in a way that stirs my heart and sends a wanderlust pulsing thru my soul.

Anyway, Joss Whedon wrote the theme for his much loved but unfortunately short lived television series, Firefly. These are the words:

Take my love, take my land,
Take me to 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’m not coming 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.
You can’t take the sky from me.
