about

This song is about what would have been going through Twilight's head while fighting Tirek, when she was forced to make the impossible decision of choosing between following the plan given to her by Celestia, or risking the wellbeing of the entire world to save her friends.

lyrics

[VERSE 1]
I'm catching my breath
Is this my final test?
I'm at my wit's end, you've taken my friends
My reason for living you now possess

You're staring me down
The greed in your eyes wants the crown
You smirk, say it's a fair trade
All my power, to keep my friends safe

I see it in their eyes
They'd rather their demise
Than risk the safety of the world
But I couldn't live if I let them get hurt

[PRECHORUS 1]
They tell me not to do it
They say we'll get through it
We'll find another way

But I can't take that risk
and I hope for their forgiveness
I turn and I say

[CHORUS 1]
I have to give it up
My power isn't enough
But my love for them is greater
So my magic can't be the deal breaker

I know I'm defying the plan
But please try to understand
You saved me from myself
I can't let this be farewell

They have to be safe first
Nothing can be a deal breaker

[VERSE 2]
I can see it in their eyes
The light that shines right through
Tells me that I'm right
And that we'll be okay if I have you

It's a tense negotiation
Save my friends but risk the nation
But it's the only thing available
I can't just let you take them


[PRECHORUS 2]
They look at me with sadness
Like I've lead the world to blackness
But I know I've made the right choice

But you've kept one more
You ask me if I'm sure
that I want the traitor
but I tell you that he's a dealbreaker

[CHORUS 2]
I have to give it up
My power isn't enough
But my love for them is greater
So my magic can't be the deal breaker

I know I'm defying the plan
But please try to understand
You saved me from myself
I can't let this be farewell

They have to be safe first
Nothing can be a deal breaker

[BRIDGE]
This is it
I've seen the light
One last fight
It's down to this

But in their eyes
I see their love
and It's enough
We'll win this time

I feel it in my heart
Letting go was the key to playing my part
And I know what we need, to light up this dark
This is what we needed to carry us far

and I know that this
is not what I was told by the princess
but love and hate and dark and light
are far more than the magic I carry inside

my friends must be safe first
Nothing can be a dealbreaker

[CHORUS 3]
I had to give it up
My own power wasn't enough
But our friendship is greater
So my magic was not the deal breaker

With friends here by my side
We all have the strength to fight
They saved me from myself
I swear this won't be farewell

They have to be safe first
Nothing could be a deal breaker
