A Friend for Life is the song that plays during the ending credits of My Little Pony Equestria Girls. It is performed by Canadian Idol season two semifinalist Jerrica Santos.


Production

According to Daniel Ingram, "[i]t was a last minute replacement for the end titles".[1] The film does not specify who sings the song, only briefly showing Derpy dancing to the song with a muffin, but Ingram has stated "I wrote the song as a ballad to [Twilight Sparkle] from the other 5 ponies."[2]

A music video of the song was published by Hasbro's mylittlepony and mlpequestriagirls YouTube channels respectively on August 27 and 28, 2013,[3][4] and a karaoke version of the song is included under the title "Friends for Life" on the Blu-ray and DVD releases of the film. On September 1, 2013, this song was muted and was replaced with different music on the initial Hub Network TV premiere to allow the 90-minute-with-commercials airtime.

On October 10, 2014, Hasbro published a different music video for the song, adding some footage from the Rainbow Rocks animated shorts, Shake Your Tail, and Perfect Day for Fun.[5] The song is also referenced in the beginning of the Rainbow Rocks novelization The Mane Event as a Rainbooms song that some students sing at the café, with the lyrics "A friend for life is what we wanna be."

The song serves as the fifth and final track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. It also serves as the twelfth track on the My Little Pony 2015 Convention Collection.


Lyrics


[Singer]
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
I couldn't see what was
Right there in front of me
Turned my back
Got my mind off track
Yeah
You saw a world that was
Something new entirely
Helped me to see
All the possibilities
Oooohhhhh....
Like a star in the day light
Or like a diamond at night
Your light was hidden
From my sight
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
Every friendship is tested
You say you're sincere
But it's all unclear now
But with a word
Everything changes
And just like that
You and I are right back
Oohhh....
Like a star in the day light (Star in the day light)
Or like a diamond at night (Diamond at night)
Your light will shine
When the time is right
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
When I put my hand out
And I thought I would fall
You knew what I needed
And you came around
To fix it all
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
Ooohh-wa-ooohh
(Like a star in the day light)
A friend for life
That's what you are to me
(Like a diamond at night)
That's what you are to me
