Possibly my second complete sentence after getting out of the truck at home was to shove Thirteen into the beloved's hands and say, "You have got to listen to this!" Absolutely amazing!

Cast off, sail away
Maybe I'll be back someday
It don't seem likely, but it's anything can be
Mama, Daddy, don't you cry
You always knew that I'd say goodbye
I got a beauty of a berth on a ship just made for me

She's the sweetest little darlin' that you'll ever find
A wee bit battered but the best of her kind
And she'll run forever with a good hand on her heart
I'm a little out of place when I'm on the ground
And that's the reason why I'm outward bound
Oh, can't you see that I'm a Firefly's missing part?

Time's up, have to run
I can't sit idle when there's work needs done
You raised me right and you know I'll make you proud
You both know that I'll be fine;
This world's for you, but the whole sky's mine
And I'll go just as far as an engineer's allowed

On the sweetest little darlin' that you'll ever find
A wee bit battered but the best of her kind
She'll run forever with a good hand on her heart
I'm a little out of place when I'm on the ground
And that's the reason why I'm outward bound
Oh, can't you see that I'm a Firefly's missing part?
What's the point in havin' wings if you never leave the nest and fly?
What's the point in havin' dreams if you never reach out for the sky?
I'll never know my limits if I never even try
You ain't raised no farmer's wife, you've raised the mechanic of a Firefly!

Big sky, bigger plans
I'm doin' what my heart demands
I'm gonna treat that engine sweet, and she'll take me far
When folks wonder after me
Just say I found Serenity
Where the sky ain't the limit, I'll be shining like a star

Cause this Firefly's the place that I'll make my home
And while she still flies, you know I'll still roam
So much to do, and now it's time to start
I'm the kind of girl who loves the simple things
And I can hear the future when my darlin' sings
Oh, can't you see that I'm a Firefly's missing part?
She's the sweetest little darlin' that you'll ever find
A wee bit battered but the best of her kind
She'll run forever with a good hand on her heart
I'm a little out of place when I'm on the ground
And that's the reason that I'm outward bound
Oh, can't you see that I'm a Firefly's missing part?
