about

It's here. It took much longer than it should have, but it's here.

I approached Feather with two songs (Flight I and II) from what would become this album a few weeks after we worked on 'I Will Be Strong' together, and luckily she was totally on board with it. Things quickly got out of hand and the number of songs grew. By a lot. Whoops.

This has been in production for a long time due to many technical difficulties, so... Sorry about that. Hopefully it was worth the wait!

Flight:
Songs about Celestia and Luna's reconciliation.

All the other ones:
Songs about Scootaloo's struggle with aerodynamics (bcuz she cant fly lol).

Enjoy the album!

Track Name: Flight I: Princess of the Day
It's been so long
Almost too long
If I could go back
I'd change it all
You wanted what I had
That's not so bad
I just wish that I'd been more for you

You were my little sister
How I could fail you so badly
How I could I let you down
And let you fall
And oh how you fell
I'm so sorry

But now the future is ours
My sister dear
And I want to take you
Under my wing
I want to show you the sky
Like you never remembered,
Never remembered before

Never remembered, never remembered,
Never remembered before

Never remembered, never remembered before

Sister, we're flying
My heart is rising with you
Sister, we're soaring
My heart is soaring too

Sister, do you forgive me now
Sister, do you know I love you
Sister, Sister, Sister, Sister
Track Name: Grounded
Sitting here
On the ground
Looking up
And looking down
Watching them
Fly high
Soaring up
Through the sky

Oh, I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly

You're so strong
I'm so small
Why can't I do
This at all?
Every time
I simply fall

Oh, I wish I could fly

This blue sky
So far
I need myself
A wishing star
If I ever hope of reaching par
With you

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away

Lost in fear
Lost in need
My hopes still soar
My hopes to be
Something more
Something more than me
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly

Take me away
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away

Still here
On the ground
Looking up
And looking down
Watching them
Fly high
Soaring up
Through the sky

Oh, I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
I wish I could fly
Track Name: Flight II: Princesses of the Sky
Take the winds
In their stride
Shift and fall
Twist and glide
Feel the air
Whisper fade
Close to the sun
Out of the shade

Silence falls
All but in mind
Voices lost
Hard to find
Hearts a burst
Much to say
Tattered past
Charming day

There's so much I
Want to say to you
But there's no way
of telling you

There's so much I
Want to say to you
But there's no way
of telling you

Celestia
Luna
Celestia
Luna
Celestia
Luna
My sister, my sister

Sisters so close
Yet so far apart
Sisters so opposite
Yet the same at heart
Tongues are tied
Wings are spread
Neither wants to say the things that they
Promised themselves they would have said
The things they would have said
Would have said

Take the winds
In their stride
Shift and fall
Twist and glide
Feel the air
Whisper fade
Close to the sun
Out of the shade

Silence falls
All but in mind
Voices lost
Hard to find
Hearts a burst
Much to say
Tattered past
Charming day
Track Name: Fears (w/ RisenFromTheDust)
I look around and all I see are my own fears
And I know that my self-doubt is what they're feeding off
This window of perspective may not come again
So my friends
I must say goodbye to you, my fears

You wore the mask of my companions
I no longer need your security
I see what you really are
I spent my life curled in your clutches
Wishing for the light to stream on in
When you cheated me all along
My strength devoured, my heart in ashes
You took it all in your careless stride

You, my fears
You, my weakness

I will never bow down to you again
I promise you I'll never let you win
For I now know the power that's within me
And for this I will set myself free

I'll set myself free
I'll set myself free

I will never bow down to you again
I promise you I'll never let you win
For I now know the power that's within me
And for this I will set myself free

I'll set myself free
I'll set myself free
Track Name: Flight III: Little Voices
There's so much emptiness
It's lifeless, except for me
Shadow one side, other light
It's conflicted, just like me

Little voices inside my head
Whispering, weaving fables
Shattering, turning tables
Little voices inside my head

I remember every detail
I understand, I comprehend
I was unruly, not myself
I fear that this is not the end

Little voices inside my head
Choking heart, night-time terrors
Crushing rights, kind to errors
Littles voices inside my head
Track Name: Flight IV: Princess of the Night
My wings were made of metal
My heart of stone
I felt nothing
From my skin to my bone

But I now I see
Yeah I now I see
That all I have to do is just let it
Just let it go


My heart is beating
Now it's got something to hold
I feel love
I believe what I'm told

That you love me
Yeah you love me
The past is the past, now I've let it
I've let it go


You're my dearest sister
Please don't cry
I was to blame
Your choice was banish or die

I don't hate you
I can't hate you
Our future is bright, now we've let it
We've let it go
Track Name: Hope
How could you know
My candle's fading? Strength's evading me?
How could you know
That I am falling? Ever calling to see
A saviour come from high,
And take my broken wings,
And lift me to the sky,
And open my eyes?
How could you know?

How could you know
That all I need is what's in front of me?
How could you know
I'm paralyzed, I'm petrified of what could be?
But you smile and warm my skin
With your light from deep within
And you tell me that your strength
Is my own from now on

Know that my hope is restored
Now that you're watching over me
Know that I will now rejoice
Now I have a chance to be
Someone new, someone like you
Someone new, someone like you
Know that my hope is restored
Now that you're watching over me
Know that I will now rejoice
Now I have a chance to be
Someone new, someone like you
Someone new, someone like you


How did you know
My candle was fading? Strength was evading me?
How did you know?
That I was falling? Ever calling to see
A saviour come from high,
And take my broken wings,
And lift me to the sky,
And open my eyes?

How did you know?
How did you know
That all I needed
Was someone new?
Someone like you
Someone like you
Someone like
You
Track Name: Against All Odds
Once upon a time there was little filly
Her name was Scootaloo
She tried to spread her little wings and join the winds
But this she found she could not do

All the other pegasai just found it easy
She wanted to fly too
But they just laughed and jeered and scorned her when she did try
So from her own kind she withdrew

And all alone she faced the odds
They were against her
Just like everypony else
And when the night came
She huddled by herself
The roof above her head, the stars
Oh the stars

Day after day she'd go school and then come home
Which was nowhere, nopony knew
She was cracking, she was breaking deep down inside
She didn't know how to get through

But then she met some in her class who shared a problem
They had no cutie mark too

She knew what she had to do

So with her friends she faced her odds
They were against her
But not everypony was
And when her trials came her test her strength
With her friends she faced the odds

When she woke she didn't dread that day was coming
The sky seemed more blue
And though her problems didn't leave, nor did her courage
With her friends to pull her through

Once upon a time there was a little filly
Her name was Scootaloo
Life held her down, but she refused to let it conquer
She just changed her point of view

And with a smile she faced she odds
They were against her
But that didn't matter now
And when she looked up to the sky
It didn't taunt her, but welcomed her
With open arms

With open arms
