"Believe In Myself" is the theme of Miles "Tails" Prower from Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. In Sonic Adventure, it was performed by Karen Brake, and in Sonic Adventure 2 by Kaz Silver, with Jun Senoue on guitars. An acoustic version of "Believe In Myself" was used in the Sonic and the Black Knight during the Blacksmith's introduction cutscene, and an instrumental remix called "Tornado Time" is played in Hidden World Zone 2 in Sonic Lost World.

Legacy

Having differences similar to the differences between the two versions of "It Doesn't Matter", the version in Sonic Adventure is a little bit slower than the version in Sonic Adventure 2, and is a little more laid back.

An instrumental of the Sonic Adventure 2 version is Tails' All-Star music in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.

Sonic Adventure DX Music Tails (Believe in Myself)

When all alone in my chair, I just go about wishin'
I wanna be strong, I really wanna be trusted
When all alone in my bed, I just go about yearnin'
I wanna be cool, I also wanna be like him

But that's not somethin' I can do so easily
This is not simply my way, my style
Gotta get a hold of my life

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher
Gotta keep goin'
Everything is a brand new challenge for me
I will believe in myself
This is the only start for me

When all alone in my sleep
I just go about dreamin'
I see myself there, having the same adventure

If I just follow you, I will not see the light
Now's the time to find my way through this life
I'm tryin' so hard to be strong

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher
Gotta keep going
Everything is a brand new challenge for me
I will believe in myself
This is the only start for me

[Guitar solo]

Many friends help me out
In return I help them
Certain things I can do, and there's things that only I can do
No one's alone

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so I have gotta fly higher
Gotta keep goin'
Everything is a brand new challenge for me
I will believe in myself
This is the only start for me, me, me

Sonic Adventure 2 "Believe in Myself" Music Request

When all alone in my chair, I just go about wishing
Wanna be strong, really wanna be trusted, ahh
When all alone in my bed, I just go about yearning
Wanna be cool, I also wanna be like him

But that's not something I can do so easily
This is not simply my way, my own style
Gotta get a hold of my life

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so
I've got to fly higher

When all alone in my sleep, I just go about dreaming
I see myself there, having the same adventure

If I just follow you, I will never see the light
Now is the time to find my way through this life
Trying so hard to be strong

I've gotta keep going
Everything is a brand new challenge for me
And I will believe
Believe in myself
This is the only way for me

[Guitar solo]

Many friends help me out, in return I help them
Certain things I can do
And there are things that only I can do
No one's alone

I wanna fly high
So I can reach the highest of all the heavens
Somebody will be
Waiting for me so
I've got to fly higher
