    View all

    Well... it's been a while, and in light of the 6 (!) month hiatus here on SoundCloud, I wanted to make sure the wait was worth it. I've taken a few of the comments on "The Moon Rises" into consideration: this song is quite a bit longer and it features a female vocal! *yay* And I will be posting the Karaoke version soon.

    Lullaby for a Princess

    Just as she promised, Luna stood her ground and refused to lower the moon. Faced with the collapse of the delicate order they had worked so hard to build, Celestia was forced to do the unthinkable. Unable to fully utilize of the elements of harmony by herself, she used a fraction of their power to imprison her sister in the moon, saving the world, but at a terrible cost. The harmonic bond between sun and moon was broken forever; now, the elements lie dormant, awaiting new bearers. In time, the darkness in Luna's heart will begin to wane, but with it, so will the sealing spell that holds her in the moon. In a thousand years, she will escape, weakened but still powerful, and the world can only hope that new ponies will be found who can wield the elements and save Luna from herself.

    But Celestia's thoughts turn again to the present. It will be centuries before she can see her sister again, and for that, she blames herself. Surely she had seen the signs? She thinks over and over of the things she might have said and done differently. But despite her own sadness, she also longs to reach out and comfort Luna, and in this mix of bitterness, tenderness, and very distant hope, she looks to the moon and begins to sing.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    Fate has been cruel and order unkind
    How can I have sent you away?
    The blame was my own; the punishment, yours
    The harmony's silent today

    But into the stillness I'll bring you a song
    And I will your company keep
    Till your tired eyes and my lullabies
    Have carried you softly to sleep

    Once did a pony who shone like the sun
    Look out on her kingdom and sigh
    She smiled and said, "Surely, there is no pony
    So lovely and so well beloved as I"

    So great was her reign and so brilliant her glory
    That long was the shadow she cast
    Which fell dark upon the young sister she loved
    And grew only darker as days and nights passed

    Lullay moon princess, goodnight sister mine
    And rest now in moonlight's embrace
    Bear up my lullaby, winds of the earth
    Through cloud, and through sky, and through space

    Carry the peace and the coolness of night
    And carry my sorrow in kind
    Luna, you're loved so much more than you know
    Forgive me for being so blind

    Soon did that pony take notice that others
    Did not give her sister her due
    And neither had she loved her as she deserved
    She watched as her sister's unhappiness grew

    But such is the way of the limelight, it sweetly
    Takes hold of the mind of its host
    And that foolish pony did nothing to stop
    The destruction of one who had needed her most

    Lullay moon princess, goodnight sister mine
    And rest now in moonlight's embrace
    Bear up my lullaby, winds of the earth
    Through cloud, and through sky, and through space

    Carry the peace and the coolness of night
    And carry my sorrow in kind
    Luna, you're loved so much more than you know
    May troubles be far from your mind
    And forgive me for being so blind

    The years now before us
    Fearful and unknown
    I never imagined
    I'd face them on my own

    May these thousand winters
    Swiftly pass, I pray
    I love you; I miss you
    All these miles away

    May all your dreams be sweet tonight
    Safe upon your bed of moonlight
    And know not of sadness, pain, or care
    And when I dream, I'll fly away and meet you there
    Sleep...
