Film version

Twilight sees Midnight Sparkle in her reflection EG4

"They mustn't see the midnight in me..."

[Twilight Sparkle]
It used to be so simple
It was a world I understood
I didn't know what I didn't know
And life seemed pretty good
But now the darkness rises
From somewhere deep inside of me
Her power overtakes me
Can I keep this midnight from getting free?
If I can stay with the light
I know I'll be free
And I can start to be whole
I can start to be me
But instead I am struggling
With all that I see
And these friends
Mustn't see the midnight in me!
The midnight in me!
They mustn't see the midnight in me...

Book version

[Twilight Sparkle]
It used to be so simple, the world I understood.
I didn't know what I didn't know, and life was so good.
Then I had to ask questions. The peculiar caught my eye.
And what I've seen can't be unseen. There is no way to hide.
Every time I think or feel,
The monster inside proves to be real.
Even though I reach for the light,
I can't escape Midnight.
Wrestling with the darkness takes its toll.
It's seen my face; it knows my soul.
How can I protect my friends,
Make sure my world doesn't end?
Even though I reach for the light,
I can't escape Midnight.
