さっきの私に恋をして

(Did it) Rather than words
(Did it) Only actions
(Did it) Do I believe
(Did it) Rather than knowledge
(Did it) Only consciousness
(Did it) Is raising

You fell for ‘the earlier me’
So from now you’re kissing me?
Girls change to the point that
One second ago feels nostalgic

Yeah my heart won’t stop, can’t go back
I’ve got a feeling
To a new me who is not me

I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart
I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart

Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can

A place I went to someday
A dream I had someday
A person I met someday
But there’s no same place
No same dream
No same person

I’m different from ‘the me’
You talked to earlier
Girls change to the point of saying
“Nice to meet you” every second

Yeah my heart won’t stop, can’t go back
I’ve got a feeling
Now is already a new past

I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart
I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart

Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can

Faster than light
Giving out light
Shining, that’s my soul
Dancing in the real life

Can’t be stopped now
I’ve got a feeling
Whoa whoa

I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart (My heart)
I’m going to find my heart
My heart, my heart
(I’m going to find my heart)

Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can

  1. I think
    ‘私じゃない新しい私へ’
    ‘Watashi janai atarashii watashi e’
    It’s Jessica not Yuri.
    Yoona’s ‘I’m going to find my heart,
    My heart, my heart’
    it’s Jessica not Yoona
    ‘輝き That’s my soul Dancing in the real life’
    ‘Kagayaki that’s my soul Dancing in the real life’
    It’s Jessica not Sooyoung.
    Taeyeon’s ‘Woah~’
    It’s Jessica

    ^^

  2. I was looking at the lyrics and noticed a few parts that I think need to be changed. I got my father’s Japanese wife and also my father who is fluent in Japanese to listen to the song several times with me and they have agreed with what I pointed out to them so I’ll point them out here:

    Yuri is singing さっきあなたが話よした instead of さっきあなたが話をして
    The romaji is “sakki anata ga hanashi yoshi ta”

    Taeyeon is singing 今はも新しい格好でしょう instead of 今はもう新しい過去でしょ
    The romaji is “Ima wa mo atarashii kakkō desho u”

    Hyoyeon is singing 一秒ごとに始めまして instead of 一秒ごとにはじめまして
    The romaji is “Ichi byō goto ni hajime mashi te” (the same as you had just spaced out, it doesn’t translate to what it should without spaces)

  3. I guess it’s time to clarify the “Catch Me If You Can” parts. I still stick to Yoonax3 Yurix3 Hyoyeonx3 Allx2. Same goes to my Youtube videos.

    But it should actually be:

    [YOONA] Catch Me If You Can
    [Yoona/Sooyoung] Catch Me If You Can
    (Fun fact: the audio was actually Hyoyeon/Sooyoung, because it was originally Yoona/Jessica. My speculation would be because it’s difficult to render two members vocal to make it sound like one, so they use Hyoyeon/Sooyoung’s line, which is also the 2nd line in the chorus, then make it Yoona/Sooyoung.)
    [Yoona/Sunny] Catch Me If You Can

    [YURI] Catch Me If You Can
    [Yuri/Seohyun] Catch Me If You Can
    [Yuri/Tiffany]Catch Me If You Can

    [HYOYEON] Catch Me If You Can
    [Hyoyeon/Sooyoung] Catch Me If You Can
    [Hyoyeon/Taeyeon] Catch Me If You Can

    [Sunny/Yuri] Catch Me If You Can
    (The MV focuses on Sunny during this part, then changes to Yuri. Here I’m pretty sure Sunny could have sung this. In addition, there was a fancam shooting at the screen at the concert, which focused on Yuri during this part.)
    [Hyoyeon/Yoona] Catch Me If You Can
    (Some broadcasts/live concerts’ screen focus on the two of them, not just because they are in the middle, but because it’s their line.)

    1. Hey daniel.

      The current color coding is absolutely correct. All members had originally one line: 1. Yoona 2. Jessica 3. Sunny 4. Yuri 5. Seohyun 6. Tiffany 7. Hyoyeon 8. Sooyoung 9. Taeyeon. The two last ones are just all and Sooyoung got Jessica’s line. This theory is the most simple and probable one.

      Sunny, Seohyun, Sooyoung and Taeyeon’s lines have absolutely no Yoona/Yuri/Hyoyeon in them, it totally sounds like the respective members only. How did I not mention Jessica’s line? Go listen to it now on our OT9 Ver. post, it’s the most obvious one.

  4. English:
    (Did it) More than words
    (Did it) Only your body
    (Did it) That I believe
    M(Did it) More than knowledge
    (Did it) Only your consciousness
    (Did it) That moves me

    I loved you before
    Kissing other from now on
    As early as this one ago
    Oh women are changing

    I can’t come back because my heart doesn’t stop
    I’ve got a feeling
    This is not a new me to me

    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart
    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart

    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can

    One day in a location
    One day in a dream
    One day we met
    But there is no such place
    I don’t have the same dream
    I will not be the same person

    The girl you talked earlier
    It’s different from me
    How do I do every one second
    Women are changing

    I can’t come back because my heart doesn’t stop
    I’ve got a feeling
    Now the old me will be last you’ll see

    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart
    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart

    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can

    More faster than light
    I’m gonna shine
    Shining that’s my soul
    Dancing in the real life

    Now I can’t stop
    I’ve got a feeling
    Whoa whoa

    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart (My heart)
    I’m going to find my heart
    My heart, my heart
    (I’m going to find my heart)

    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
    Catch me if you can
