Shimmer On by Strangeside Shimmer On by Strangeside
AND NOW,
IT'S ALL OVER NOW
THE SPARKLE IS GONE,
SEE ME SHIMMER ON

I'mma tell you how it began, 
Just so you understand,
This ain't at all what I had wanted,
And it's not what I had planned
And when I make demands, 
Your attention I expect,
All I wanted was respect, 
But I just couldn't connect with the one

Who said she'd give me, 
Everything I ever wanted,
Imagine seeing all your dreams, 
Waved and being flaunted,
Right In front of your face, 
And now you're called a disgrace, 
I chase her down to,
Get the crown and take, 
Control of this place

This ain't my home, I'm cold, 
Broken alone, No one
Really knows who I am, 
But I can't start to show who I've
Grown into, something new, I slowly realize 
I'm becoming a monster, 
And now I fantasize about

Getting her back, 
I track her down, and it's whack,
I'mma find that newbie's head, smack it down till it cracks,
Man, I swear I'll take it back, 
Take the life that was mine,
See me shimmer, see me shine, 
But you're running out of time.

AND NOW,
IT'S ALL OVER NOW
THE SPARKLE IS GONE,
SEE ME SHIMMER ON

Now it seems your ears are open, now you'll look my way
You send your precious protege to come and save the day
You never tried to listen to a word I had to say,
So forget it, it's over, never gonna see me sway

I stand firm on the ground, no sound from me complainin,
I'm the King of the storms, no one escapes my reigning,
You're washed up, your friends are all ashamed,
Cuz your magic ain't nothin next what I'm conjuring today

Who woulda thought, you'd be caught, you'd be brought,
To your knees, now get shot, thanks a lot,
Cuz I fought for every thing that I got,
Here you are, thinking you can instantaneously 
Take it right on the spot?

I'mma teach a lesson that you'll wish you could forget,
You're gonna wish that you never been the teacher's pet,
I gave up all my friends, just to see how far I'd get
They say it's lonely at the top, I don't miss them yet.

AND NOW,
IT'S ALL OVER NOW
THE SPARKLE IS GONE,
SEE ME SHIMMER ON

Anything you can do, I can do better.
Anything you can do, I can do better.
Anything you can do, I can do better.
Anything you can do, I can do better.

AND NOW,
IT'S ALL OVER NOW
THE SPARKLE IS GONE,
SEE ME SHIMMER ON

Now the battle is done, almost thought that I won
Hard fought, dragged out, and it was 6 against one,
And now you say we can change,
But you know what's really strange?
Before this happened, no one ever even cared about my name.

Yeah, you keep your friends, till the end,
Let 'em drag you down,
Let them all bow to the beautiful crown
That really should have been mine,
Nah, things will never change
You stole away my life, and I will never be the same.

Isn't "Everything you can do I can do better" what Trixie said in Boast Busters?

Awesome pic you've got, there. :) It's awesome to see works of Sunset Shimmer in her pony form--a reminder that she was, in fact, the perfect nemesis/shadow archetype for Twilight Sparkle.

So much potential, Sunset Shimmer, and you wasted it at a bloody high school... I like her slitted eye; really calls to mind the form she takes in her final battle. (Wish we could've seen it in pony form, though...)

She would have made a much better villain for the actual show, especially if they kept her in the background throughout the entire season until she made her move.
