Track Name: Twilight's Friendship School
We all come from distant lands
Six friends who understand
That friendship isn't just a helping hand
It's a bond that we all share

And despite the differences we show
And the cultures we come from
We face every challenge as our total sum
Since we're stronger when we stand as one

[Chorus]
In the heart of Equestria there's a home
For every creature to roam
Whether you are a changeling, yak, griff, or pone
You'll never be alone-
At Twilight's Friendship School

Every day at Twilight's school
We learn things we never knew
From pony history to dragon rules
Obscure and hardly known

And while sometimes I'm put to sleep
By boring words that I can't speak
Learning here is sure unique
But I'm just happy to be with my friends

[Chorus]

And summer break had never seemed so lame
Waiting to be with my friends again

[Chorus]
Track Name: Professor Dash
An early start to the day
Bleary-eyed from the sun's first rays
I grab my pack and make my way
To where my destiny awaits

I never thought there'd be a day when I'd want to go to school
But there's a teacher who makes our classwork always seem so cool

[Chorus]
Soaring through the clouds with a Wonderbolt by my side
I hear the roar of the crowd as we spin around one more time
With Professor Dash here teaching me I'll be the best that I can be
And I know she'll always help me find my way
And get better every day!

She's not as kind as Fluttershy
Unlike Pinkie, no surprise
But if you look at her determined eyes
You'll find a spirit that's on fire

Her loyalty to all of us always helps us to get through
And when we face our fears and doubts she always knows just what to do

[Chorus]

I never thought there'd be a day when I'd want to go to school
But there's a teacher who makes our classwork always seem so cool

[Chorus]
Track Name: Silverstream
Seeing the world through your eyes
Makes me happy to be alive
The wonder you find from the simplest things
Makes me proud to have you close at-wing

And every day we learn together
This friendship we forged can weather any weather
Cuz when I’m with you the rain will never stay long
And so for you I wrote this song

[Chorus]
I used to live day-by-day
Thinking nothing could ever change
Until you came into my life
A beacon of shining light
And with that infectious laugh
You set me on a path
Towards the life that I was always meant to live
And the friends I share it with

You really learn to enjoy life
When every day’s a new surprise
Your amazement over every new thing
Is enough to make me want to sing

Did you know you’re an inspiration?
Your spirit of laughter brings everypony elation
And when you smile you just light up the room
Oh Silverstream, I owe this to you

I used to live day-by-day
Thinking nothing could ever change
Until you came into my life
A beacon of shining light
And with that infectious laugh
You set me on a path
Towards the life that I was always meant to live--

And the friends I share all these amazing times with
Are here because of you
And the way that we all chase our dreams
I wouldn’t trade for anything

[Chorus]
Track Name: Sadey
I want you to feel
I want you to know what it’s like
To be angry, sad, and fight being apathetic
I want you to love
I want you to feel your heart explode
Like the violent messy screwed up thing love is

Step away from despair
I just want you to freakin' care

Sadey
You may be
The saddest girl I’ve ever known
Cut up heart and all alone
Sadey
Let the love into your heart
Don’t let it fall apart
Get back up again

Sometimes when you’re sad
You get overwhelmed with grief
You shut down and believe you’re better gone
And you put up that wall
But instead of keep you safe
It locks you far away from your friends

It’s through tears that we grow
These emotions make us whole

Sadey
You may be
The saddest girl I’ve ever known
Cut up heart and all alone
Sadey
Let the love into your heart
Don’t let it fall apart
Get back up again

Fighting through can be so hard
Make every day a brand new start
Don’t lose sight of who you are
Don’t stop wishing on those stars...

Sadey
My baby
There’s so much I want you to see
Just take my hand and follow me
Sadey
I once felt just like you
I built up my walls too
Till they crashed down and took me away from you

I’m sorry…
I’m sorry…
I'm sorry I couldn't save you...

Sadey...
Track Name: Big Blue
He may not be a saint, or a magic protege
He may send more complaints than compliments your way
But despite his gruff exterior
There's no other griff superior
For Gallus is the truest friend that you will ever know

He may not have the brains of Ocellus
And I maintain he can be overzealous
But Gallus isn't callus
Like other griffons you may know
It's true, he has a heart of gold

[Chorus]
When you need a friend who's true
Look no further than Big Blue
A griffon who'll be there through thick and thin
And when the walls start closing in
He'll help you push them back again
He'll always help you make it through
You'll never find another friend like Big Blue

We may not feel the same about our classwork
And he may not appreciate exotic artwork
He'll never pass for royalty
But he's very good at loyalty
For Gallus is the truest friend that I've ever known

And while sometimes he likes to be alone
He'll always have a place within my home
He helped me face my fears
When nobody else was near
And when he's here we always get along

[Chorus]

And so I must confide
I love being by your side
You help me find the strength to follow through

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Tempest
When the world has turned its back on you
And all you knew has turned to lies
When your friends have turned to foes and you
Are left to realize
That the world that once was colorful
Has faded straight to black
And nothing you can say or do
Will repair that horn that's cracked

There’s a tempest raging within you
There’s a tempest raging within you

And at your darkest moment
As your heart is full of rage
It feels as if your mind and soul
Are trapped within a cage
And someone darkly offers up
Exactly what you seek
And you know you would do anything
Despite the havoc you could wreak

There’s a tempest raging within you
There’s a tempest raging within you

And after worlds have fallen at your hooves
Through dust and crumbling stone
The one that you had served and trust
Has taken the stolen throne
But corruption is a persistent flaw
That power amplifies
And the promises he made are now
Exposed as nasty lies

There’s a tempest raging within you
There’s a tempest raging within you

But despite the many, many times
You've had to bear this cost
And the hurt and rage that well inside
And all the tears you've lost
Great honor and nobility
Were shown from your sacrifice
To preserve a future for us all
At the ultimate personal price

The tempest lives within you
Yes, the tempest lives within you

A Tempest with destructive power
Can be examined once again
As a storm welcomed by summer’s drought
After months without the rain
And just as flowers bloom from fields
That were burned to tepid ash
A spark within you returns to us
Made better from her past

The tempest lives within you
The tempest lives within you
Yes, the tempest lives within you
The Tempest lives...
...within you.
Track Name: Bad Wolf: 2019
Time runs circles 'round us all
It lifts us up and lets us fall
With every beat we move along
Sync up our hearts to another song

Life flows like a stream
Heartbeats tick the time away

[Chorus]
We fight the minutes passing
A fight that's everlasting
Every tomorrow becomes today
We always look back upon
The battles we never won
But refuse to say time's had it's way
No not today! No not today!

Remember back to long ago
We traded seeds that we could sow
And all the things we have today
Are thanks to souls from far away

Life flows like a stream
Heartbeats tick the time away

[Chorus x 2]
Track Name: Brony Pride
When I was just sixteen
Had a car that was lean and mean
Put Dashie in my window
Was the coolest thing I’d seen

But these kids from down the road
They were rather cold
I found my Dashie lay in pieces
Broken and alone

But I had my group of friends
Who would defend me to the end
And we picked up every piece and tried
To make her whole again

Cuz together we can do it
Overcome our fears and doubts
Though everypony loves to shun us
Together we stand proud
Hoof in hoof we all will weather
The storm and the hate
Cuz as long as we’re together
We’re better off this way
We’ve got brony pride forever

Well it wasn’t long thereafter
I went to my first con
Had a lot of new adventures
And I had a lot of fun

I spent a weekend in a world
Much different from my own
And I learned a million things about
The ponies from the show

But when I had to say goodbye
The tears fell from my eyes
But I forced a smile and turned away
And said I think I’ll be alright

Cuz together we can do it
Overcome our fears and doubts
Though everypony loves to shun us
Together we stand proud
Hoof in hoof we all will weather
The storm and the hate
Cuz as long as we’re together
We’re better off this way
We’ve got brony pride forever

These years have sure flown by
Still got Dashie by my side
I still have my pride
And I’m still a brony

And many years from now
Gonna sit my children down
And tell them all about
These amazing times

I joined the herd and learned that I
Will never be alone
I’m surrounded by my friends who always
Help me feel at home

Cuz together we can do it
Overcome our fears and doubts
Though everypony loves to shun us
Together we stand proud
Hoof in hoof we all will weather
The storm and the hate
Cuz as long as we’re together
We’re better off this way

Yes, together we can do it
Overcome our fears and doubts
Though everypony loves to shun us
Together we stand proud
Hoof in hoof we all will weather
The storm and the hate
Cuz as long as we’re together
We’re better off this way
We’ve got brony pride forever
