Lyrics

Original Version

Woo!
Aw yeah!

Rolling around at the speed of sound
Got places to go, gotta follow my rainbow
Can't stick around, have to keep moving on
Guess what lies ahead, only one way to find out
Must keep on moving ahead
No time for guessing, follow my plan instead
Trusting in what you can't see
Take my lead I'll set you free

Follow me, set me free
Trust me and we will escape from the city
I'll make it through, follow me
Follow me, set me free
Trust me and we will escape from the city
I'll make it through prove it to you

Follow me!
Oh yeah!

Danger is lurking around every turn
Trust your feelings, got to live and learn
I know with some luck that I'll make it through
Got no other options, only one thing to do
I don't care what lies ahead
No time for guessing, follow my plan instead
Find the next stage, no matter what that may be
Take my lead, I'll set you free

Follow me, set me free
Trust me and we will escape from the city
I'll make it through, follow me
Follow me, set me free
Trust me and we will escape from the city
I'll make it through, prove it to you
Follow me!

Follow me!
I'll make it through, oh yeah!

Classic remix

Whoo!
Oh yeah!

Rolling around at the speed of sound,
Got places to go, gotta follow my rainbow.
Can't stick around, have to keep moving on,
Guess what lies ahead, only one way to find out!

Must keep on moving ahead,
No time for guessing, follow my plan instead.
Trusting in what you can't see,
Take my lead I'll set you free.

Follow me, set me free,
Trust me and we will escape from the city.

I'll make it through.
Follow me (Follow me), set me free,

Trust me and we will escape from the city.
I'll make it through prove it to you.
Follow me!

Oh yeah!

Danger is lurking around every turn,
Trust your feelings, got to live and learn.
I know with some luck that I'll make it through,
Got no other options, only one thing to do-o-o-o!

I don't care what lies ahead,
No time for guessing, follow my plan instead.
Find the next stage, no matter what that may be.
Take my lead, I'll set you free.

Follow me, set me free,
Trust me and we will escape from the city.

I'll make it through.
Follow me (Follow me), set me free,

Trivia

In the Sonic Generations version of the song (for Classic Sonic only), a segment of Endless Mine Zone's music from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 can be heard, most likely because Jun Senoue was a part of Sega's Sound Team behind some of the tracks in Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic 3 & Knuckles. In Modern Sonic's version, the guitar riff from It Doesn't Matter (SA2) was mixed in, most likely because Jun Senoue was the composer for much of Sonic Adventure 2's soundtrack.
