Lil Wayne / Bruno Mars - Mirror (Twilight Sparkle) by AdrianImpalaMata Lil Wayne / Bruno Mars - Mirror (Twilight Sparkle) by AdrianImpalaMata
Not long after watching the music video for Mirror (see links below) by Lil Wayne and Bruno Mars on a school morning, I had some sort of an idea for what would be the pony album cover for this song. My original idea was to have Twilight Sparkle helping herself ("Mirror on the wall, here we are again / Through my rise and fall, you've been my only friend"); one Twilight would be crying hopelessly, while the other one would put her hoof around her. Obviously, it didn't happen. Instead, my mind just bounced onto another idea: same pony, but this time, the other Twilight would have a worried look, saying, "Are you alright?" The result was much better than what I expected; not only I set the bar (and reached it) to put together some emotionality, it felt like it was... just BEAUTIFUL. Nothing like it. To add to this, some flares were added as if the two Twilights were trying to use magic to heal themselves in a sympathetic kind of way. And it's (probably) true friendship.

EDIT: Added an alternate version of this pony album cover. See the Sta.sh link below the lyrics and song credits.


Lil Wayne
With everything happening today,
you don't know whether you're coming or going,
but you think that you're on your way.
Life lined up on the mirror, don't blow it.

Look at me when I'm talking to you;
you looking at me but I'm looking through you.
I see the blood in your eyes;
I see the love in disguise.

I see the pain hidden in your pride;
I see you're not satisfied.
And I don't see nobody else;
I see myself, I'm looking at the...

Bruno Mars - chorus
Mirror on the wall, here we are again;
through my rise and fall, you've been my only friend.
You told me that they can understand the man I am,
so why are we here, talkin' to each other again?

Lil Wayne
Uh, I see the truth in your lies;
I see nobody by your side.
But I'm with you when you are all alone
and you correct me when I'm looking wrong.

I see the guilt beneath the shame;
I see your soul through your window pane.
I see the scars that remain;
I see you, Wayne, I'm looking at the...

Bruno Mars - chorus
Mirror on the wall, here we are again; (Lil Wayne: Yeah!)
through my rise and fall, (Lil Wayne: Uh-huh.) you've been my only friend. (Lil Wayne: My only friend...)
You told me that they can understand the man I am, (Lil Wayne: They can't understand!)
so why are we here, (Lil Wayne: Misunderstood...) talkin' to each other again?

Lil Wayne
Looking at me now, I can see my past;
damn, I look just like my f[...]ing dad.
Light it up, that's smoke in mirrors;
I even look good in the broken mirror.

I see my momma smile, that's a blessing;
I see the change, I see the message.
And no message could've been any clearer,
so I'm startin' with the man in the...

Bruno Mars
Mirror on the wall...

Lil Wayne
MJ taught me that.

Bruno Mars
Here we are again;
through my rise and fall,
you've been my only friend...

Lil Wayne
Take 'em to Mars, man.

Bruno Mars
You told me that they can understand the man I am,
so why are we talkin' to each other again?

Lil Wayne
Uh...

Bruno Mars - chorus
Mirror on the wall, here we are again; (Lil Wayne: Yeah!)
through my rise and fall, you've been my only friend. (Lil Wayne: Any questions?)
You told me that they can (Lil Wayne: I come to you...) understand the man I am, (Lil Wayne: You always have the answer.)
so why are we here, talkin' to each other again?

Bruno Mars
Mirror on the wall...

Lil Wayne
Hey, B.P., looks like I did take 'em to Mars this time.

Bruno Mars
So why are we talking to each other again?
