I Used To Live Alone Before I Knew You by MustLoveFrogs I Used To Live Alone Before I Knew You by MustLoveFrogs
I've seen your flag on the marble arch,
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken "hallelujah"...

mlp:fim =Hasbro/Faust

There are many, many good versions of this song.  Here's the one I'm listening to now! www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRP8d7…

Don't worry, Tavs and V get happier. 









I've heard there was a secret chord
That PON3 played and it pleased the lord,
But you don't really care for dubstep, do ya...
OK I'm done.  X3  :iconsadvinylscratchplz:

:iconsadvinylscratchplz:  *looks out at the table as Octavia enters.  The potatoes were runny.  The salad looked like it was dropped once.  Maybe twice.  And the kippers... a dish Octavia had mentioned with such fondness.... looked like lumps of charcoal you should throw in a fireplace.  If she even had a fireplace!

Clapping Pony Icon - Octavia  Vinyl... the food looks... very delicious.


:iconsadvinylscratchplz: Just.... Just don't, Tavi.

Clapping Pony Icon - Octavia    No I mean it. Truly.

 :iconsadvinylscratchplz:  No its not.  Its a wreck.  I finally get a great mare and a home for the holidays and I cant even get THAT right.  I'm just full of fail.  You need someone who can make you special and give you all the... I mean Celestia dang it I ruined Potatoes!  Who does that?

Clapping Pony Icon - Octavia *hugs tightly*  Oh, angel, I don't want just anybody.  I want you.  I love that you went out of your way to make this night special.  There is only one pony I would want to spend this time with and thats the pony I'm holding right now.

:iconsadvinylscratchplz:  *sniff sniff*  I- I guess I win even if I fail?  How do you put up with a goof up like me?

Clapping Pony Icon - Octavia  I'm lucky to have you.  *holds up the pumpkin pie on the table*  Hey, your pie looks exquisite.

Vinyl Scratch (i liked) plz  *sniff*  Heh... You always say that about my pie.  

Octavia Melody Emotion 1 I said lucky didn't I?  How about we order pizza and I prove it to you.

I'm strongly considering having Tavi call her "angel" as a permanent pet name now.

I also love that Silvers want kippers.

Only when she has been really good. Octavia Melody Emotion 1

Hard to tell its her fancy upbringing or her distant mer heritage.

Humans (and in this case anthropomorphic ponies) are social creatures. 
Studies show we need contact with others or it starts to have negative effects on our minds. 

All that's just a fancy way of saying, sometimes you just need a hug.

Smiling and showing you are okay is easy to do but when you are so alone it is harder to be true. there is no hard times they can not over come with the love they share for each other.

This has to be one of my very favorite covers of this song.  It come second to one and only one. Aside from Master Cohen's that is.  His is a league of its own.

Frog-nabbit, why must you always bring the feels like this? (Also, thank you for always bringing the feels like this.)

Vinyl is always strong and confident, but nopony escapes the loss of Leo Cohen. This is one of the best Vinyl moments I've seen; something big enough that even she can't give a frog about what anypony else thinks.

Tavi: *hugs* "Vinyl, other ponies are staring."
Vinyl: "Frog them! Leo would want this." *more hugs*

The original lyrics are pretty naughty (good for Frog, but not so good for singing on the Metro), so I kinda prefer his alternate lyrics. Plus they provide nice alternate feels depending on one's mood.

"I did my best, it wasn't much.
I couldn't feel, so I learned to touch.
I've told the truth, I didn't come all this way to fool you.

Yeah even though it all went wrong
I'll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah."

Also, can we all agree that Kate McKinnon is unfairly talented? Like Canadian-ly talented? She sings, plays at least three instruments (piano, cello, guitar), does improv comedy, and can rescue a well-intentioned but sloppily directed movie.

Thank YOU for coining the expression "frog-nabbit"!  I'll be petitioning Webster on that front ASAP.

I LOVE that final line!  I would have included it in the description, but I felt this pic was more sad and lonely and less balls-to-the-wall emotional.  That said, I have some youtubing to do...

Thanks. "Frog" really is flexible, playful sentence enhancer; like a modern-day "smurf". From the classics, like "frog-sarnit!" or "totally frog-adelic!" to replacing just about any random one-syllable word. (And, since most epithets in English are four letters, it can make for some decent swearing, too.)
