Men sometimes have trouble expressing their affection, like a certain Captain Malcolm Reynolds

lyrics

* She's shiny! Oh so shiny!
Don't say a word. I'm in love with that girl
She's shiny! Oh so shiny!
She keeps me spinning round and round in a whirl

Carryin' the weight of heartache from her past.
A-runnin' towards a future that won't last
What a beaut'! That girl makes my heart soar
She lights the night like a brightly shining... star

Dressed up for fancy ball in the dark of night.
Ain't gonna pull my punches, cuz I love to fight.
'Fore I knew, things got out of control
I set my sights on makin' it out whole

Sometimes she doesn't like the way I deal
Sometimes she lets me know with steel
Sometimes she sets good men on fire
Climb aboard and she'll ride up your spire.

I found her in a down and out, dirty place
Head down, feelin' a disgrace.
Looked inside and saw hope in her eyes
I knew one day that Firefly would fly!



* [G]She's shiny! Oh so [Em]shiny!
Don't [D]say a word. I'm in love with that [Em]girl
She's [G]shiny! Oh so [Em]shiny!
She keeps me [D]spinning round and round in a [Em]whirl

[C]Carryin' the weight of heartache from her [G]past.
[C]A-runnin' towards a future that won't [G]last
[C]What a beaut'! That girl makes my heart [G]soar
She [D]lights the night like a brightly shining... [Em]star
