(String intro – 4x)

(Full intro – 2x)

In the beginning, in the moment we meet

I see you the first time, ‘n’ my heart skips a beat.

‘n’ right here, right now, just for this time

(it) unfolds in a word, you give me a sign…

No future, no past. This moment, won’t last…

Haji-----------------------------memashite, Haji-------------------------mete.

For the very first time you give me a sign

Haji-----------------------------memashite, Haji-------------------------mete.

You lay it on the line ‘n’ it sure feels fine

Haji-----------------------------memashite, Haji-------------------------mete.

I remember when it’s never again

Haji-----------------------------memashite, Haji-------------------------mete.

Frozen in… that moment then

When the time comes, and when time it goes by

Ya blink and you’ve missed it, ima shika nai.

But just for that moment, it’s perfect in time

(the) Stillness in rhythm, (the) silence in rhyme

No future, no past. This moment, won’t last….

(Chorus)

(Bridge – 2x)

(Chorus – 2x)
