"Reach for the Stars"
Main Theme, Sonic Colors
Album: Vivid Sound x Hybrid Colors: Sonic Colors Original Soundtrack

Reach for the Stars is the main theme for Sonic Colours. It's remixed for the fights against the Nega-Wisp Armor and the DS-exclusive Nega-Mother Wisp boss battles as well as other instances within both versions of the game. The former version on the DS was actually performed by the London Symphony Orchestra (which that version appears on the soundtrack), and the latter is more in tune to an 8-bit and 16-bit (a combo of the Game Gear and the Genesis) of the theme.

The lyrics were originally written by Zachary Jacob Lawrence and submitted for a contest, where it was selected as the winner. The lyrics were slightly modified for use in the game.

Lyrics

Take off, at the speed of sound
Bright lights, colors all around
I'm running wild, living fast, and free
Got no regrets inside of me

Not looking back
Not giving up
Not letting go
I'll keep on running

I'm gonna reach for the stars
Although they look pretty far
I'm gonna find my own way
And take a chance on today

The sky with stars so bright
The colors feel so right
I never felt like this
I'll keep on running

The sky with stars so bright
The colors feel so right
Just take my hand
We're gonna reach for the stars
Tonight...

Tonight....

Wake up, living day by day.
Do what I want, and I'll do it my way
The world is flying right below my feet
Got no regrets inside of me.

Not looking back (Not looking back)
Not giving up (Not giving up)
Not letting go
I'll keep on running!

I'm gonna reach for the stars
Although they look pretty far
I'm gonna find my own way
And take a chance on today

The sky with stars so bright
The colors feel so right
I've never felt like this
I'll keep on running

The sky with stars so bright
The colors feel so right
Just take my hand
We're gonna reach for the stars
Tonight...

Tonight....

(Instrumental)

I've got it in my sight.
The colors feels so right.
Got my feet off the ground
I'll keep on running!

Oh, I can feel it now.
The colors all around
Just take my hand we're gonna reach for the stars...

Just take a chance (Just take a chance)
We'll do it right again
(I'm gonna reach for the stars)
Just take my hand (Just take my hand)
We'll take a chance tonight...
Reach for the stars...

Tonight!

Tonight...
