(Akane) If I hugged you in a dream (Hey how about that?)
It's become that I can't see your face, hasn't it? (Why?)
(Nabiki) Words that I can't say are stirring in my heart
You peeped innocently, but...

(Kasumi) The wind's blowing over the river (I have to go home)
(R&A&N) Goodbye (I was scolded)
(Shampoo) Your smiling face and gestures
are asking many questions

(All) We're still friends, right?
I only said "Love" once
(Ranma) What can I do after this?
(All) What kind of spoken things are good?
By me...

(A&S&N) Bought on the roadside, but (a red rock)
(Kasumi) if it was a ring, it'd be an engagement (probably a suitable fit)
(Ranma) You... it's a promise
Thesefeelings are awful but...

(All) You're now bewildered as well
It's not even true love yet and
(Nabiki) It's only that I don't hate you, right?
(All) Only love and happiness
From you...

(Akane) On our joined hands
I search for warmth and the ring on your ring finger

(All) We're still friends, right?
I only said "Love" once
(Shampoo) We have to change our feelings
(All) Because this can't happen often between us

(Akane) You may touch me in dreams,
but they don´t stay,
(today you don´t have much to say.)
How I might gonna face the light of day?
(what have I done now?)

(Nabiki) Things completely unspoken
thinking it´s for the best,
then I look into your eyes,
and it gets tight in my chest.

(Kasumi) Hear the river? It tells of our goodbye,
(it´s late and they don´t wait for me.)
Sayonara and whispers on the breeze,
(I´ll get in troubles.)

(Shampoo) Let me know what in your heart
That’s a good place to start.
All I need is a small start
Then I give my heart to you.

(All) You and me have still got,
so much we need to say.
Friendship’s not enough,
why can´t we seize the day?

(Girl-Type Ranma) Don´t you know I got no idea,
from this point on?

(All) So far to go,
until we both are free.
YOU AND ME !!!!!


Morning in Furinkan finds Ranma Saotome rushing to get down the stairs, but he trips and falls into Akane Tendo who is going up to get him and they fall to the foot of the stairs in a heap. Nabiki goes ahead while the two start to argue, but they run out the door when Kasumi tells them they will be late. Genma in his panda form is shown playing shogi with Soun. Elsewhere, Ryoga Hibiki is shown brushing his teeth on a mountain, Kodachi Kuno feeds her shark while Sasuke Sarugakure watches, and Ukyo Kuonji flips an okonomiyaki with "Ran-chan" written on it with sauce.

On the way to school, Akane and Nabiki are shown singing. Ranma runs ahead and Tatewaki Kuno notices Nabiki stop to look at a puppy. Back at the Tendo Dojo Kasumi is hanging out the laundry while Genma and Soun watch.
