Legacy

The song is generally associated with Super Sonic and Super Shadow, as it plays when they power up and when they fight Finalhazard in Sonic Adventure 2. it briefly plays in instrumental form in Shadow the Hedgehog when Shadow turns Super Shadow. It plays in the last episode of the Sonic Adventure 2 adaption arc of Sonic X, Showdown in Space (Japanese version only). It also plays in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing in Seaside Hill. It appears in Sonic Generations in the battle against Shadow when Sonic powers up his special attack ("All Hail Shadow" plays when Shadow is fully charged). When Sonic uses the Energy Cores to attack Shadow, a modified, 40 second version plays. The song's intro plays when the Super Sonics unleash their final attack against the Time Eater, but the Sonic the Hedgehog 4 theme (albeit remixed) plays in its place. It is unlockable in Sonic Generations. A cover version by Miku Hatsune, a popular Japanese vocaloid, who's also the protagonist of another highly popular SEGA video game series, appears in the "初音ミク: Project DIVA" extended special collaboration album by VOCALOID REMIXES.

Lyrics

Can you feel life, movin' through your mind?
Ooh, looks like it came back for more!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Can you feel time, slippin' down your spine?
Oooh, you try and try to ignore!

Yeeeah!

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-ay
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn!
You may never find your way

Whooooa, oh, yeah!

Can you feel life, tangle you up inside?
Yeeah! Now you're face down on the floor!

Ooooh!

But you can't save your sorrow
You've paid in trade!
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-ay
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn!
You may never find your way

(Hey!)

Whoa, whoa, whooa
Oh yeeeeeah!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

There's a face searching far, so far and wide
There's a place where you dream you'd never find
Hold on to what if?
Hold on to what if?

Live and learn!
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow
Live and learn!
From the works of yesterday-ay
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow
Live and learn!
You may never find your way

Live and learn!
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow!
Live and learn!
From the works of yesterday-ay!
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow!
Live and learn!
You may never find your waaaaaaay!!!

Live and Learn!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
Live and Learn!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
