Tune: "Homeward Bound" by Paul Simon
Weíve travelled far by Chappa ai.
Until now the going has been fine, mmm mmm.
Weíve taken care and been alert
But now things have gone from bad to worse.
Half the team is badly hurt
And the DHD has ceased to work.
Earthward bound, I wish we could be earthward bound.
Earth where we long to be,
Earth where we live free,
Earth where the gate lies waiting silently for us.
Iím stranded at this outpost station,
I was sent here by the Federation, mmm mmm.
Canít clear this darkness from head.
My heart is full of mortal dread.
I fear we may all soon be dead.
How I wish we could just head
Earthward bound, I wish we were earthward bound.
Earth, where our thoughtís escaping.
Earth, where our musicís playing.
Earth where our homes lie waiting silently for us.
My only home is Serenity.
I dream a dream that can never be, mmm mmm.
Earth that Was is forever gone.
Now everything seems all wrong.
Sometimes I think I canít go on.
Still I know I must be strong.
Earthward bound, I wish I could be earthward bound.
Earth with your skies of blue
Earth with your sparkling dew,
Earth where my love once waited silently for me.
Earthward bound, we wish we could be earthward bound.
Earth, where our hopes were born
Earth, from whom weíve been torn,
Earth where our dreams lie waiting silently for us.
Chappa ai, Enterprise, Firefly!
