Mal's Song Lyrics

When the stars shine bright through the engine's trail

And the dust of another world drops behind

When my ship is free of the open sky

That's a damn good day to my way of mind

There's a barren planet you never can leave

There's a rocky valley where we lost a war

There's a cross once hung round a soldier's neck

There's a man's faith died on Serenity's floor



But I stood my ground and I'll fly once more

The last oath that I ever swore



[Chorus]

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 into the black

Tell 'em I ain't comin' back

Burn the land and boil the sea

You can't take the sky from me

You can't take the sky from me



When you see a man and he's standin' alone

Well you might just take him for an easy mark

And there's many a man has tried his hand

And there's worse than wolves in the borderland dark

From the savage men to the government hounds

Try to take what's yours and tear you through

But them that run with me got my back

It's a fool don't know that his family's his crew



Don't tell me what I cannot do

Don't think I've got to run from you



[Chorus]



When you've walked my road, when you've seen what I've seen

Well you won't go talkin' 'bout righteous men

You'll know damn well why I want to keep to my sky

Never cry 'neath nobody's heel again

I've seen torment raked 'cross innocent souls

Seen sane men mad and good men die

I've been hounded, hated, married and tricked

Been tortured, cheated, shot and tied



You won't see no tears when I say goodbye

I've still got my family and my Firefly



[Chorus]

When the stars shine bright through the engine's trail

And the dust of another world drops behind
