Holy holy cow. I wasn't expecting to upload this. This was originally an instrumental created for the toastbeard (ZIQ44: http://toastbeard.bronyradio.com/a/ZI...).

The theme was:
"Pick an episode and write a song about how the events might have played out in a parallel universe.
Whether the change leads to a completely different ending for the episode, or if just a single tangential subplot is added (or ruined).
For example, what if Twilight had applied the wing spell to Applejack instead of Rarity in "Sonic Rainboom"?"

My thought was a pretty simple one. What if Applejack, while in Manehattan as a filly, was looking away from her bedroom window, and never saw the Sonic Rainboom that would have called her back home?

For the longest time, this instrumental was sitting on my soundcloud, and I was trying to come up with lyrics and a melody, with no luck. I went on vacation for a week, and when I came back, my buddy Le Soldat (http://www.youtube.com/user/soldatpony) had come up with lyrics and recored vocals, and I was FLOORED.
So. Go subscribe. Now. :D
Soldat, you are an amazing person, and WHY WUB WOO. /)^3^(\

Special shoutout to Miss Shiba, who helped me name this!

Maybe I'll cry like a songbird sings
Like that songbird, that songbird one morning,
One morning...
The city wakes up here, the moment night fled
But I can't bring myself out of bed

Maybe it's all too much for me
Cannot stand here and crumble
When I'm not even free
Come on and take me home,
These walls break so easy
I cannot see a rainbow when the rain won't stop on me
I'll never see what that songbird sees,
What that songbird sees.
