Valley

down in the valley, valley so low
hang your head over, hear the wind blow
hear the wind blow, dear, hear the wind blow
hang your head over, hear the wind blow

flightless
chained to the world once more
I'm assailed sunk & boarded
fearless
chose you time & again
this is how I'm rewarded
eyes to the stars but I'm aimlessly drifting
in a sky that is black cold & trackless
but doubtless
but for the way it ends
be it known you were flawless

you said
"you take the wheel
just like I showed you dear
carry on you are blameless
you will live on
you were always too strong for me"
doesn't mean it was painless
I bit the apple without fear of consequence
but held you too close to my chest
I've danced this dance before, hit what I'm aiming for
so back to the valley I guess

roses love sunshine, violets love dew
angels in heaven know I love you
know I love you, dear, know I love you
angels in heaven know I love you

weightless
as a leaf on the wind
what is left but to fight it?
wordless
always the warrior
can't they see I'm so frightened
wasn't just you that I lost in that moment
cause I won't meet that child now regardless
so once more
into that valley's arms
& I'll stay now inside it

you take the wheel...

A song inspired by the TV show "Firefly" and movie "Serenity".
Those who are familiar with the series, know what this song is about,
for those who haven't seen it yet, I wouldn't dare to spoil it.
