| [Steven] Here we are in the future|
Here we are in the future and it's bright
Nothing to fear
No one to fight
I can't believe we've come so far
Happily ever after here we are
Once upon a time, I thought I'd always be in my mother's shadow
Answering for her crimes I thought I'd always be in an endless battle
Until I began to hone
A power all my own
That I could feel growing stronger every day
And now I saved the world
Not just that- the whole galaxy saved
We did it!
Here we are in the future!
[Pearl] Once upon a time, I only lived to be of Pink Diamond's service,
'Till the day the two of us snuck down to be on this planet's surface,
We became our fantasy,
And I was sure she set me free,
But in the end I guess I never left her side,
And after love and loss and all the tears that I cried,
I find that,
[Steven and Pearl] Here we are in the future!
[Garnet] Once upon a time, a Sapphire came to Earth with her Ruby soldier,
Sapphire's deadly fate was set until the Ruby rushed in to hold her,
Suddenly they were fusing,
Beautiful, strange, confusing,
And there I was, a bundle of questions, so naive,
That if you told me this I never would have believed you then but,
[Steven and Garnet] Here we are in the future!
[Amethyst] Once upon a time I burst to life inside of the Kindergarten,
A product of a war that I had no idea I had a part in,
I came out late and alone,
Knew nothing but my home,
But I know now exactly who I'm 'spos'd to be,
And it's a part of this family!
[Steven] If I could stop right here and be,
Are in the future,
[Steven, Garnet, Pearl, and Amethyst] Here we are in the future and it's bright,
Nothing to fear, no one to fight,
I can't believe we've come so far,
[Steven] Happily ever after,
[Garnet, Pearl, and Amethyst] Happily ever after,
[Steven, Garnet, Pearl, and Amethyst] Happily ever after here we are!

- During Steven and Garnet's backstory segments, samples of "We Are the Crystal Gems" and "Stronger Than You", respectively, can be heard.
- The scenes of the Crystal Gems running seem reminiscent of events in the Extended Theme Song. The both of them show Steven initially struggling to keep his running up with his fellow Crystal Gems who are shown with their debut outfits in both, and change to their most recent ones when Steven is running in front of them. The order in which they are running is also identical to the opening.
