lyrics

There was a boy, he was kind of shy
Ate apples and fluttered in rays of sunshine
He’d had a dream since he was a wee
He’d dress up just like what he wanted to be

I’m gonna be a pony, that’s what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna be a pony and my life is gonna start anew
I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star
So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are

At school or home, each day he dressed up
But found wearing horse skin just wasn’t enough
And being a boy had caused him much strife
He figured he needed a more stable life

I’ll live among the ponies, that’s what I’m gonna do
I’ll live among the ponies and my life is gonna start anew
I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star
So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are
I’m gonna be a pony, that’s what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna be a pony and my life is gonna start anew
I blew my birthday candles, I wished upon a star
So look out world, I’m coming home, no one can tell you who you are

No! This can’t be!
The world has turned while I’ve stayed still, what does it want from me?
I’ve been confined
All alone, ignored, defined by difference in minds
I must be free
But when I look in ponies’ eyes, they barely even notice me
And now there’s nothing here for me, and now there’s no remorse
So beat me while I’m down, cause I’m a dead horse

He couldn’t live inside a nightmare
And nobody noticed when he wasn’t there
Each second he lived was a step in the ground
So life’s not a place to be horsing around

Friendship’s as real as magic is not
As none of your buddies will mourn when you rot
You’re not one to blame, you can’t help that you’re you
But sometimes our dreams just aren’t meant to come true
