"Just for a Moment" is the last original song from the first season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. It appears on the episode "Opening Night" and it is performed by Ricky (Joshua Bassett) & Nini (Olivia Rodrigo). Bassett and Rodrigo also contributed to the composition of the song.

Summary

The theater students of East High prepare for their first performance. Ricky writes a song for Nini, "Just for a Moment", while Nini prepares a gift for Ricky; but the pair are hesitant to share these with each other.

Lyrics

Ricky:
I fell in love
With the only girl who knows what I'm about
Nini:
I fell in love
With a boy and I can't tell if I fell out

After all is said and done
I can't just pretend I'm moving on
Ricky:
Is it just a part we're playing
'Cause it don't feel like we're fakin'

Nini & Ricky:
When we're underneath the lights
My heart's no longer broken
For a moment
Just for a moment

When we're singin' side by side
There's so much left unspoken
For a moment
Just for a moment

A moment in love (just for a moment)
A moment in love (just for a moment)
But is a moment enough?
Just for a moment

Ricky:
I fell in love
With the only girl who knows what I'm about
Nini:
I fell in love
With a boy and I can't tell if I fell out

After all is said and done
I can't just pretend I'm moving on
Ricky:
Is it just a part we're playing
'Cause it don't feel like we're fakin'

Nini & Ricky:
When we're underneath the lights
My heart's no longer broken
For a moment
Just for a moment

When we're singin' side by side
There's so much left unspoken
For a moment
Just for a moment

A moment in love (just for a moment)
A moment in love (just for a moment)
But is a moment enough?

Ricky:
Way, way back then
Always dreamed it's you and me 'til the end
Nini:
Now, we can't play pretend
And I'm scared to talk to my best friend

Should I stay or let you go?
Will you love me when the curtains close?
Ricky:
Is it just a part we're playing
'Cause it don't feel like we're fakin'

Nini & Ricky:
When we're underneath the lights
My heart's no longer broken
For a moment
Just for a moment

When we're singin' side by side
There's so much left unspoken
For a moment
Just for a moment

A moment in love (just for a moment)
A moment in love (just for a moment)
Ricky:
But is a moment enough?

Nini:
Maybe
Your heart still stops when you see me
Maybe it's worth another try
Better place, better time

Nini & Ricky:
When we're underneath the lights
My heart's no longer broken
For a moment
Just for a moment

When we're singin' side by side
There's so much left unspoken
For a moment
Just for a moment

A moment in love (just for a moment)
A moment in love (just for a moment)
But is a moment enough?

When we're underneath the lights
My heart's no longer broken
For a moment
Just for a moment
