"The Light of Hope" is the ending theme of Sonic Forces. It is performed by Amy Hannam, and arranged and written by series sound director Tomoya Ohtani. A soft, piano ballad in a similar vein to "Dear My Friend", the song reiterates the themes of friendship, comradery and, of course, hope found in the game's main theme, "Fist Bump".

Lyrics

All that I see now, is not the same
All you remember, has gone away
But, you're still standing here
So much has happened, it's hard to bear
Shadows of sadness, within your stare
But, still you're standing here
There beyond, future's down the road
But the journey won't be easy
Rising up, and standing on your own
With the beauty in your eyes
Shining...
You, have not lost a thing
Whatever may come
The light of hope is always shining there in your heart
You've not lost a thing
Whatever you do
Just know that your tomorrow will be waiting for you
Ever so precious, a vision share
The future you promised on that special day
Still, memories never fade
Friends of old, back from long ago
Come again, just to say hello
And there’s something that you know
Find the strength that lies within your soul
And believe that you can do it
Rising up, and standing on your own
With the beauty in your eyes
Shining...
You, have not lost a thing
Whatever may come
The light of hope is always shining there in your heart
You've not lost a thing
Whatever you do
Just know that your tomorrow will be waiting for you
Never have to give up
Whatever may come
The light of hope is always shining there in your heart
Haven’t lost anything
No matter what comes
But know inside that here is right where you always are
Sow a seed in the ground and let it know
It's something special
Let it bloom, let its flowers ever bloom
Many friends, gather as emotions grow
And great power starts to flow
You, have not lost a thing
Whatever may come
The light of hope is always shining there in your heart
You've not lost a thing
Whatever you do
Just know that your tomorrow will be waiting for you
Never have to give up
Wherever you go
Know inside that you will never be there alone
Haven’t lost anything
Whatever may come
The light of hope is always shining there in your heart
