It is sung by Tony award winning actress Lena Hall. It is the third track on the album Pinkie Pie's Party Playlist.

Production

On December 2, 2014, Lena Hall posted on her Twitter account a brief video showing the recording session of the song.[3][4]

At the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con, this song was presented in storyboard animatics to attendees.

This song is a homage to Lady Gaga's acoustic versions of her songs.[5][6]

The song was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Original Song".[8]

Lyrics

Rara sings "put my heart out on the line" S5E24
[Coloratura]
I'm here to show you who I am
Throw off the veil, it's finally time
There's more to me than glitz and glam, oh-whoa
And now I feel my stars align
For I had believed what I was sold
I did all the things that I was told
But all that has changed, and now I'm bold
'Cause I know
That I am just a pony
I make mistakes from time to time
But now I know the real me
And put my heart out on the line
And let the magic in my heart stay true
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
And let the magic in my heart stay true
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
Just like the magic inside of you
And now I see those colors
Right before my eyes
I hear my voice so clearly
And I know that it is right
They thought I was weak, but I am strong
They sold me the world, but they were wrong
And now that I'm back, I still belong
'Cause I know
That I am just a pony
I make mistakes from time to time
But now I know the real me
And put my heart out on the line
And let the magic in my heart stay true
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
And let the magic in my heart stay true
Whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
Just like the magic inside of you
Just like the magic inside of you...
