"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 too small. The boy therefore invites her to join him under his own umbrella. 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).

"Melt" was released as ryo's first single (メルト). It was also featured on the albums supercell, VOCALOID BEST from ニコニコ動画(あか), Hatsune Miku 5th Anniversary Best ~memories~, 初音ミク‐Project DIVA‐2nd NONSTOP MIX COLLECTION, and Hatsune Miku Best ~memories~.


"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".

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

ピンクのスカートお花の髪飾りさして出かけるの今日の私はかわいいのよ! pinku no sukaato ohana no kamikazari sashite dekakeru no 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言えない。。。 suki da nante zettai ni ienai...
だけど メルト dakedo meruto
目も会わせられない me mo awaserarenai
恋に恋なんてしないわ私 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 nano

天気予報がウソをついた土砂降りの雨が降る。 tenki yohou ga uso wo tsuita 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 tameiki wo tsuita
そんなとき sonna toki

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

メルト 息が詰まりそう 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 takanaru mune
はんぶんこの傘 hanbunko no kasa
手を伸ばせば届く距離 te wo nobaseba todoku kyori
どうしよう?! doushiyou?!
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 wo tomete nakisou nano
でも嬉しくて死んでしまうわ! demo ureshikute shinde shimau wa!

メルト 駅についてしまう。。。 meruto eki ni tsuite shimau...
もう会えない近くて遠いよ mou aenai chikakute tooi yo
だから メルト dakara meruto
手をつないで歩きたい! te wo tsunaide arukitai!
もうバイバイしなくちゃいけないの? mou baibai shinakucha ikenai no?
今すぐ私を抱きしめて! ima sugu watashi wo dakishimete!
。。。なんてね ...nante ne

Written by an unknown artist, this version of the lyrics were used in the English version of Hatsune Miku -Project DIVA- F 2nd.

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!
