Blues' Song

_____________________________________________________________
 

I want the sun
I want the world
I want the stars

There's ebony beneath my wings
And cascade streamers in my tail
My eye are dark like deepest night
And strike like ice sharp hail

I want the wind
I want the sky
I want the stars

Yet my future's in the rocky dark
Where none can comfort me
The nights are cold, the sky is black
These chains can't set one free

I want the night
I want the moon
I want the stars

A warrior born and a warrior I be
But mistakes will weigh like stones
The day they took my crew away
Is the day they cracked my bones

I want the infinite
I want the light
I want the stars

A cargo's weight is all I am
And my future is cold and bleak
For one free mission with weapons blazing
Yet my captain and crew were weak

I want the end
I want the day
I want the stars

But I'll not crack and show the pain
Of battles never fought and won
This cargo's cold and this body slow
But one day you'll see this cruiser run

I want the world
I want the space
But I'll take the stars
