Lyrics
If you're strong, you can fly

You can reach the other side of the rainbow

It's all right, take a chance

'Cause there is no circumstance that you can't handle

When you use your mind

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom

Trouble keeps you running faster

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom

Save the planet from disaster

Through the dark to the light

It's a supersonic flight

Gotta keep it going

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom

Trouble keeps you running faster

Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom, Sonic Boom

Save the planet from disaster

Lyrics
Thunder, rain and lightnin'

Danger, water risin'

Clamor, sirens wailing

It's such a bad sign

Shadows of dark creatures

Steel clouds floatin' in the air

People run for shelter

What's gonna happen to us?

All the steps we take, all the moves we make

All the pain at stake

I see the chaos for everyone

Who are we? What can we do?

You and I are the same in the way that

We have our own styles that we won't change

Your's is filled with evil and mine is not

There is no way I can lose

Can't hold on much longer

But I will never let go

I know it's a one-way track

Tell me now how long this'll last

I'm not gonna think this way

Nor will I count on others

Close my eyes and feel it burn

Now I see what I've gotta do

Open your heart, and you will see

Lyrics
Can you feel life movin' through your mind?

Oh, looks like it came back for more, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can you feel time slippin' down your spine?

Oh, you try and try to ignore, yeah

But you can hardly swallow

Your fears and pain

When you can't help but follow

It puts you right back where you came

Live and learn

Hanging on the edge of tomorrow

Live and learn

From the works of yesterday

Live and learn

If you beg or if you borrow

Live and learn

You may never find your way

Hey, whoa, whoa

Oh yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Got no more other options, only one thing to do

Find that next stage, no matter what that may be

Take my lead, I'll set you free

Lyrics
What goes up must come down

Yet my feet don't touch the ground

Seein' the world spinnin' upside down

A mighty crash without a sound

I can feel your every rage

Step aside, I'll turn the page

Breaking through your crazy maze

Like a laser beam my eyes on you

Watch me rule the night away

Watch me save the day

Feel my storm is getting close

Headin' your way

Sonic Heroes, Sonic Heroes

Bind you, confine you, defying your reign

Sonic Heroes, Sonic Heroes

Setting the stage for a hero's parade

You can bet there ain't no doubt

As the words spill from the mouth of a hero

I can chase another day, fight you all the way

Like a hero

And together we stand strong no matter how

No one can bring us down

Hey

Sonic Heroes, Sonic Heroes

Bind you, confine you, defying your reign

Sonic Heroes, Sonic Heroes

Setting the stage for a hero's parade

Japanese title: Seven Rings In Hand

Lyrics
Make-believes reborn

Myths in mind rethought

Question all that's known

Legends blurred and torn

Make-believes reborn (make-believes reborn)

Myths in mind rethought (myths in mind rethought)

Question all that's known (question all that's known)

Legends blurred and torn (legends blurred and torn)

(Legends blurred and torn)

Yeah

No such thing as fate for those who speed

A path out of time instead of just livin' it

So many things need a push or a pull to begin

Un-free to move unless another hand gets in

Be it all the same, it's never the same

Just like that, it's nothin' it all just means

Nothin' it all just means

If all as is, then it's never as is

Back to fact, make real of all that seems

Make real of all that seems

Seven rings in hand

Speed through nights with feet in sand

Seven rings in hand

Wonders all under command

Seven rings in hand

Wild with just one single hand

Seven rings in hand

Arrowed hearts catch fire now

Seven rings in hand

Nights with feet in sand

Seven rings in hand

Seven rings in hand

Make-believes reborn (make-believes reborn)

Myths in mind rethought (myths in mind rethought)

Question all that's known (question all that's known)

Legends blurred and torn (legends blurred and torn)

(Legends blurred and torn)

Yeah

Whoa, whoa

Hey, all (hey, all)

Welcome to the greatest storm

I know (I know)

You have waited much too long

And I (and I)

I will be your shining star

I'm here (I'm here)

Here to conquer near and far

Like the sun (the sun), I run (I run) Into the heat of day

Like a knight (like a knight), I'll fight (I'll fight)

Until the fight is won

In a rage (a rage), I'll save (I'll save)

Each and every, each and every, each and every one

Until this war is won

And I live to rule by the sword

Slashing through the every inch of the power

The power in you

As I sit, as I stand by the table I command

My kingdom

I'm the knight of the wind

The Knight of the Wind

I'm the Knight of the Wind

Our castle is a massive force

A stronghold of power

My armour stays unbreakable

In battle every hour

I'm running wild, livin' fast and free

Got no regrets inside of me

Not lookin' back

Not givin' up

I've never felt like this, I'll keep on runnin'

The sky with stars so bright

The colors feel so right

Just take my hand, we're gonna reach for the stars

Wake up, livin' day by day

Do what I want, and I'll do it my way

The world's flying right below my feet

Got no regrets inside of me

Not lookin' back (Not lookin' back)

Not givin' up (Not givin' up)

Not letting go

I'll keep on running

I'm gonna reach for the stars

Although they look pretty far

The sky with stars so bright

Lyrics
I can't do this alone

Even though I am strong

Need something more than me

Someone to push me to victory

Let's see what we can do

Together, me and you

Can't be afraid to try

Kiss your fears goodbye

No looking back

You and I, we're on the attack

Full speed ahead

Running to the sunset

Such a different feeling

Both of us believing

We can make it better

Together, we can show the world what we can do

You are next to me and I'm next to you

Push me on through until the battle's won

No one's gonna give a thing to us

Into each other we put our trust

Standing united, after the fight

All alone we will never be

The two of us are holding the key

We see today, a world we couldn't see

Before I say goodbye to you, one more last fist bump

I know you have been afraid before

But you don't have to be any more

No more emptiness to feel inside

When we run together, no one can break up our stride

No looking back

You and I, we're on the attack

Full speed ahead

Running to the sunset

Such a different feeling

Both of us believing

We can make it better

Trivia[edit]

  • Right There, Ride On is the only previous Sonic the Hedgehog song not to be included in Ultimate.
  • This is the only game where the vocal to non-vocal ratio of Sonic the Hedgehog music is even.
  • If one counts both versions of SSB4 as being the same game, Ultimate is the only game with 3rd Party characters where the Sonic the Hedgehog universe does not have the most music for any third party universe, as Mega Man, Street Fighter and Fatal Fury exceed it.
