For the album containing the original soundtrack of Sonic and the Secret Rings, see Seven Rings In Hand: Sonic and the Secret Rings Original Sound Track.

"Seven Rings In Hand" is the main theme for Sonic and the Secret Rings, and is played during the final battle with Alf Layla wa-Layla. It was composed by Namano Mashurio, written by Runblebee and performed by Steve Conte.

Legacy

"Seven Rings in Hand" has also appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, in the Green Hill Zone stage, along with several other Sonic themes. It is also played during the credits after beating the Classic and All-Star modes with Sonic. It also appears in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as one of the tracks that can be played on Windy Hill.

Crush 40 produced a cover version of the song, which can be found as a bonus track in True Blue: The Best of Sonic the Hedgehog and as a track in Sonic and the Black Knight.

Bentley Jones also composed a remix titled "Seven Rings in Hand ~Fairytales in Trance~" which was released on Face to Faith: Sonic and the Black Knight Vocal Trax. This version sounds more tailored to the ending credits than the boss music.

Lyrics

Make beliefs reborn
Myths in mind rethought
Question all that's known
Legends blurred and torn
Make beliefs reborn (Make beliefs reborn)
Myths in mind rethought (Myths in mind rethought)
Question all that's known (Question all that's known)
Legends blurred and torn (Legends blurred and torn) (Blurred and torn)
No such thing as fate for those who speed
A path out of time instead of just livin' it
So many things erased before they begin
Hopes un-dream instead of what could have been
Fortune fades like words in the sand
Just like that it's nothin' at all, just seams
Nothin' at all, just seams
Fortune shines with seven in hand
Back to fact make real of all that seems
Make real of all that seems
Seven Rings in Hand speed through nights with feet in sand
Seven Rings in Hand wonders all under command
Seven Rings in Hand wild with just one single hand
Seven Rings in Hand arrowed hearts catch fire now
Make beliefs reborn (Make beliefs reborn)
Myths in mind rethought (Myths in mind rethought)
Question all that's known (Question all that's known)
Legends blurred and torn
No such thing as an arrow through who dreams
Hopes may burden but forever last to give in
So many things need a push or pull to begin
Un-free to move unless another hand gets in
Be it all the same, it's never the same
Just like that it's nothin' it all just means
Nothin' it all just means
If all as is then it's never as is
Back to fact make real of all that seems
Make real of all that seems
Seven Rings in Hand speed through nights with feet in sand
Seven Rings in Hand wonders all under command
Seven Rings in Hand wild with just one single hand
Seven Rings in Hand arrowed hearts catch fire now
Memories that dance (Memories that dance)
Fairy tales in trance (Fairy tales in trance)
Know what to believe (Know what to believe)
Nothin's up to chance (Nothin's up to chance)
Make beliefs reborn (Make beliefs reborn)
Myths in mind rethought (Myths in mind rethought)
Question all that's known (Question all that's known)
Legends blurred and torn
(Instrumental)
Seven Rings in Hand speed through nights with feet in sand
Seven Rings in Hand wonders all under command
Seven Rings in Hand wild with just one single hand
Seven Rings in Hand arrowed hearts catch fire now
Seven Rings in Hand...
Nights with feet in sand...
Seven Rings in Hand...
Seven Rings in Hand...
Make beliefs reborn (Make beliefs reborn)
Myths in mind rethought (Myths in mind rethought)
Question all that's known (Question all that's known)
Legends blurred and torn
Seven seas in hand
Speed of sound through sands
All our hopes and plans
In one single hand!
