BackgroundEdit

"Melt" is about a shy girl who is in love with a boy. In her pursuit of him, she gets her bangs cut and encourages herself to look cute, all the while hoping he'd notice. Her love is pure; she loves him not because she is in love with being in love, but because she genuinely likes him, to such an extent she can't even bring herself to look him in the eye and feels like melting to simply be with him.

Later that day, it rains. Since the weather report was inaccurate, the girl is caught off-guard; while she does have a collapsible umbrella in her bag, she thinks it is too small. The boy therefore invites her to join him under his own umbrella. With her heart pounding, she is so happy she could cry, because in Japan sharing an umbrella is a sign of shared feelings and is associated with couples. When they reach the station, she almost tells him to hold her because she does not want to leave him, and can not believe herself.

Multiple Fanmade PVs for "Melt" exist; most of them feature Miku as the protagonist, acting out the events described by the song. The "boyfriend" character is often represented by a faceless person (a technique often used to represent "Master", or the VOCALOID user).

PopularityEdit

"Melt" and its PVs are so popular on Niconico and YouTube that it has been featured in some Nico Nico Medleys, and has many covers and parodies both by live musicians and other VOCALOIDs.

With over twelve million views, the original upload of "Melt" on Niconico is the third most viewed original VOCALOID song on the site, behind "Senbonzakura" and "Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru♪". It isn't quite as popular on YouTube, although one reprint of the 3M Mix of "Melt" has over five million views. This puts it far behind other VOCALOID YouTube reuploads such as "Matryoshka" and "World is Mine".

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
朝 目が覚めて asa me ga samete
真っ先に思い浮かぶ 君のこと massaki ni omoi ukabu kimi no koto
思い切って 前髪を切った omoikitte maegami o kitta
「どうしたの?」って 聞かれたくて "doushita no?" tte kikaretakute

ピンクのスカート お花の髪飾り pinku no sukaato ohana no kamikazari
さして 出かけるの sashite dekakeru no
今日の私は かわいいのよ! kyou no watashi wa kawaii no yo!

メルト 溶けてしまいそう meruto tokete shimaisou
好きだなんて 絶対にいえない… suki da nante zettai ni ienai…
だけど メルト 目も合わせられない dakedo meruto me mo awaserarenai
恋に恋なんてしないわ わたし koi ni koi nante shinai wa watashi

だって 君のことが …好きなの datte kimi no koto ga …suki na no

天気予報が ウソをついた tenkiyohou ga uso o tsuita
土砂降りの雨が降る doshaburi no ame ga furu
カバンに入れたままの オリタタミ傘 うれしくない kaban ni ireta mama no oritatamigasa ureshikunai
ためいきを ついた そんなとき tameiki o tsuita sonna toki

「しょうがないから入ってやる」なんて "shou ga nai kara haitte yaru" nante
隣にいる きみが笑う tonari ni iru kimi ga warau
恋に落ちる音がした koi ni ochiru oto ga shita

メルト 息がつまりそう meruto iki ga tsumarisou
君に触れてる右手が 震える kimi ni fureteru migite ga furueru
高鳴る胸 はんぶんこの傘 takanaru mune hanbunko no kasa
手を伸ばせば届く距離 どうしよう…! te o nobaseba todoku kyori dou shiyou…!

想いよ届け 君に omoi yo todoke kimi ni

お願い 時間をとめて 泣きそうなの onegai jikan o tomete nakisou na no
でも嬉しくて 死んでしまうわ! demo ureshikute shinde shimau wa!

メルト 駅に着いてしまう… meruto eki ni tsuite shimau…
もう会えない 近くて 遠いよ だから mou aenai chikakute tooi yo dakara
メルト 手をつないで 歩きたい! meruto te o tsunaide arukitai!
もうバイバイしなくちゃいけないの? mou baibai shinakucha ikenai no?

今すぐ わたしを 抱きしめて! ima sugu watashi o dakishimete!
…なんてね …nante ne

When I woke up this morning
The first thing I thought of was you
I made up my mind, and cut my bangs short
Just so you'd ask me "Why?"

Pink skirt, flower pin in my hair
I'm going out
I'm looking cute today!

Melt! I feel like I'm gonna melt away
I can't tell you I like you, but then I...
Melt! I can't even look you in the eye
I won't fall for love, not me
But... I really do like you

I wish time would stop
I feel like I could cry
So happy, I feel like I could die!

Melt! Pulling into the station
The end of the line for us, so near, so far
Melt! I want to hold your hand in mine
Do we already have to say goodbye?
I want you to take me in your arms!
...You wish!
