Here is the second song in the "Three Songs, Three Fandoms" series, this time based on My Little Pony. This is a song I started composing over a year and a half ago that only came to fruition through an amazing collaborative effort with the incredible Respin. His amazing vocal cutting work and musical prowess made this a blast to create. Also of immeasurable help on the song was Flaminbunny, whose ideas and input helped make the song all it could be.
So, this is my first song about Rainbow Dash! Respin and I wanted to capture the energy of her character while also embracing our respective styles of music, and hopefully we pulled it off! I decided to base the lyrics off of the Season 3 episode "Wonderbolts Academy", in which Rainbow Dash finally has an opportunity to fly for a chance to join the Wonderbolts, but finds herself at odds with the ideology of those she once looked up to. In a way, this reflects the struggles of everyone with a passion; at what point do you have to lose what you were to become what you thought you wanted to be? And should you even do so? Respin let his vocal cutting snippets hearken to this too, through phrases such as "And I'll know never to be you".
The third song, "I Sing to You" was delayed due to a change in backtrack collaboration but will be released shortly! I promise it'll be worth the wait!
In the rising dawn
Just another day to bear
Don't know where my life has gone
Waiting on an answered prayer
Hiding from your face
You're breaking through my endless youth
Telling me my life's a waste
My world is crumbling in the truth
Flying never felt so low
All the things that we have done
Though I try I never know
What you want me to become
(Vocal Splicing section by Respin)
Rainbow Dash: And I'll fly forever (get nervous, get nervous, oh)
It doesn't, it doesn't
Better be harder, better be fast, better be shining free
(And I'll know never to be you)
Every night I lie awake
Facing fears I'm hiding deep inside
Every word I heard you say
Every memory louder than the lies
Nowhere left for me to go
When the dreams I seek are dead and gone
Though I try I'll never know
What you want me to become
Rainbow Dash: I don't want second (get nervous, get nervous, oh)
Better be harder, better be fast, better be pushing on till I fly, on till I fly
Who am I?
I'll journey till I find a light
Yeah I'll get there one day
Cause I fly away
From the world I knew
Cause my heart it told me to
Now I'm on my own
Who knows what I could become?
In the air I see it
The truth, yeah I believe it
Doesn't matter what we've done
Only what we can become
Woah, singing woah
With my friends I'm not alone
Now I know what I'll become
