about

This is a song that is very close to me. Though I wrote it with ponies in mind (originally for my "He Sobs... Now He Clops" album which is also on Bandcamp) about Earth Ponies being really awesome despite not having wings or magic...

It ended up being about how I met my fiancee, because in a lot of ways I was a huge jerk when I was younger. So this popped out of me and I didn't even know what to do with myself, but Forest Rain (youtube.com/user/PutTrustInFate) came in and really helped me out with the piano and strings... thanks man.

lyrics

You know, when I started this whole thing...
it was all about the wings
But then I met you filly, and you're just...
perfect...

You know when we first met
I ignored you and went on my way
Was so focused on what you lacked
I couldn't see, all the things that you had
But you were so honest with me
Didn't try to be something you weren't
When I was done playing the pegasus game
And the unicorns started looking the same...

You were...

Down to earth
No need to prove your worth
Down to earth
So amazing, to me you're always first

You don't need to tell me why
You stuck by my side in spirit
Waited patiently
Now you're all I need

You were...

You made love grow
Seeds that you sow
Mistress of my heart
I was yours before the start...
You knew just to wait
It was all fate
Cutie marks tell us our calling
But nothing told me I'd be falling
in love... with you.

'Cause you were
