Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
nochi no yo ni "kami no te o motsu mono"
to shousareru chouzouka "Auguste Laurant"
senran no sanaka ni ushinaware heiwa to tomo ni sugata o arawashita to sareru
imada shinpi no usufu [veil] ni tsutsumareta chouzou kare no kidai no kessaku
"Tenshi" [ange] ni himerareshi shirarezaru "monogatari" [Roman]...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Auguste Laurant, the sculptor
Who would later be known as "the man with the hands of God"
Vanished in the midst of war and reappeared with the return of peace.
The statue still shrouded in the veil of mystery was his rare masterpiece
And in that angel, an unknown story is hidden...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"monoiwanu tsumetai ishi ni inochi o tomoseru nado to
zokujin-tachi ga utau no wa tada no ogori ni suginu
aru mono o tada aru you ni ryou no te de uketomete
nukumori ni kuchidzukeru you ni omoi o katadoru dake..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"To kindle the spark of life in cold, speechless stone,
As the ordinary folk say, would be nothing more than mere vanity.
I simply take things into my hands to allow what exists to exist
And, as if to kiss that warmth, give shape to my thoughts..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
fuusha koya [moulin au vent] sora o daite mawaritsudzukeru oka no ue
koubou [atelier] wa ta o kobamu you ni shizuka ni tatazumu kage

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The windmill embraced the sky and went on spinning atop the hill
His studio was a silent shadow that seemed to forbid entry to all others

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
kare wa tada hitori de egaita waga ko no kao mo shirazu ni...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
He worked all by himself, not even knowing the face of our child...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{tarinai no wa kotesaki no sobyouryoku [dessin] de wa nai -- genjitsu o mo koeru souzouryoku [imagination]}
"aa... hikari o ... aa... motto hikari o... sunawachi souzou [creation]... urei no hikari o..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{What is lacking is not cleverness of design -- it is the imagination to surpass reality.}
"Ah... light... ah... more light... that is to say, creation... the light of sorrow..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
shougai awanu to chikainagara ashigeku kayou shuudouin [monastere]
kodomo-tachi no waraigoe kabegoshi ni kiite iru...
"kimi no te ga ima tsukande iru de arou sono {ishi} wa totemo kowareyasui
sono te o hanashite wa naranai tatoe nani ga osoou to mo...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Though he swore never to meet them in his life, on his frequent visits to the monastery
He would listen to the laughing voices of the children through the wall...
"The stone you are now holding in your hand is very fragile
You must never let it go, no matter what should confront you..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
kare wa hibi hitori de egaita waga ko no kao mo shirazu ni...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
He worked alone day after day, not even knowing the face of our child...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{hitsuyou na no wa sugishi hi no koukai [regret] de wa nai -- gensou o mo tsumugu aijou [affection]}
"aa... hikari o... aa... motto hikari o... sunawachi shokuzai [expiation]... sukui no hikari o..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{What is necessary is not regret over days past -- it is the affection to weave illusions.}
"Ah... light... ah... more light... that is to say, expiation... the light of salvation..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
ika naru kenja de are koboreru suna wa tomerarenai
kare ni youi sareta gin'iro no sunadokei nokosareta suna wa ato wazuka...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
However wise a man may be, he cannot stop the flow of the sands of time
There were only a few grains left in his silver hourglass...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
hahaoya no hi o ubatte kono yo ni tomotta chiisa na {honoo}
sono kagayaki o nikunde shimatta oroka na otoko no saigo no waruagaki...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
A small flame was lit in this world at the cost of his mother's light
And this was the futile, dying struggle of a foolish man who had grown to hate that glimmering...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
souzou no tsubasa wa hirogari yagate "chouzou" no se ni tsubasa o hirogeta
-- "aa... mou omoinokosu koto wa nai yatto waratte kureta ne..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
He spread the wings of his imagination, and soon the wings on the statue's back were spread as well.
-- "Ah... I have no more regrets... you've finally smiled at me..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"soko ni ROMAN wa aru no kashira?"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Could there be a story over there?"
