Director Chiaki J Konaka chose Duvet as the opening theme after seeing a translation of the lyrics and thinking that they seemed very Japanese. And you don't seem to understand A shame you seemed an honest man And all the fears you hold so dear Will turn to whisper in your ear And you know what they say might hurt you And you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing. And you don't seem the lying kind A shame then I can read your mind And all the things that I read there Candle lit smile that we both share and you know I don't mean to hurt you But you know that it means so much And you don't even feel a thing. The song was selected by the director Chiaki J. It was an usual choice as most the the opening themes are written for the show. For Jasmine, "Lain was a happy coincidence".

And you know what they say might hurt you. And you know that it means so much. And you don't even feel a thing. I am falling, I am fading, I have lost it all And you don't seem the lying kind, A shame that I can read your mind. And all the things that I read there, Candle-lit smile that we both share.
