about

This song is about Rainbow Dash's personal struggle with everyone doubting her dream of becoming a Wonderbolt, immediately dismissing her, saying she's too lazy or too unmotivated. They tell her ("helpfully") that she should quit and find a new, more reasonable dream.

But she doesn't need that.

lyrics

VERSE 1:
The things you call reality checks
To pull me down and try to win
Are nothing more than things you've said
For me to prove wrong in the end

And I don't care what you have to say
If it doesn't matter anyway

PRECHORUS 1:
So I'll just keep going forward and I know that

CHORUS 1:
I don't need this
And you don't need to say
That the things I feel
Aren't worth even second place

So I know that in the end
you'll realize
And I know that when I succeed
you'll open your eyes

VERSE 2:
The way your smile speaks
Blares out loud that you're better than me
And every time I have to leave
I can tell you think you've won something

But I don't care, even so,
Even if you think it's hopeless

PRECHORUS 2:
So I'll just keep going forward and I know that

CHORUS 2:
I don't need this
And you don't need to say
That the things I feel
Aren't worth even second place

So I know that in the end
you'll realize
And I know that when I succeed
you'll open your eyes

BRIDGE:
I live by soaring
And even if you think you're helping
I can't fly when I know that I
am weighed down by a broken wing

Even if you tell me that I'm wrong
I know that sometimes you have to fall

CHORUS 3:
I don't need this
And you don't need to act
As if the things I think
Aren't worth a second glance

And I know that in the end
you'll realize
I give my all and I know
that one day my dreams will be mine

So I don't need this
