Yoko Takahashi's single version of the Neon Genesis Evangelion theme song.
Music composed by Satō Hidetoshi.

Approx. 128 BPM after the four measures of voice at the beginning straight through.

Each pair of dashes represents a 16th note except during the verse, where each
pair of dashes represents an 8th note. Verses were condensed to save space.

[Vox intro]

4 bars of rest. Bar 4 is held; come in after the drum fill.
