"Reach for the Stars" is the vocal theme for Sonic Colors. It is performed by Jean Paul Makhlouf and Alexander Makhlouf from the band Cash Cash. An acoustic version has been performed live at Bryant Park. It also plays an 8-bit version when two Wisps are used at the same time in two-player mode. An orchestral version is played during the final boss fight with the Nega-Wisp Armor in the Wii version and the Nega-Mother Wisp in the Nintendo DS version. It can be found and played during the Intro and credits screen. An instrumental version plays while playing as Super Sonic.

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 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....
I've got it in my sight.
The colors feel 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
(We're 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...
