Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I wanna tell it to all the world:
I am yours.
Even now, I wanna be an angel.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
kotori-tachi ga sawaide-iru
kyou no yohou de wa taiyou ga ichioku

datte anata ni koi wo shita kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The little birds are making noise.
In today's forecast, a hundred million suns
will fall.
It's so dazzling,  I can't even breathe.
But that's why I fell in love with you.

anata no kuchi kara  [1]
subete wo shiritai no
umi no fukasa, sora no takasa,

kono keshiki
datte anata ni koi wo shita kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Everything you say,  [1]
I want to know.
The depth of the sea, the height of the sky,
the mysteries of the blue...
This view is filled with these
superb wonders
But that's why I fell in love with you.

tenshi wa anata wo torimaku muchi na
hitobito tomo jouzu ni oriau no
jinsei wa mijikai kara

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
An angel would along well with
the ignorant people that surround you.
Because life is short.

watashi wa anata no mono
rakuen ni tadoritsuita no


Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I wanna tell it to all the world:
I am yours.
I've reached paradise.

This song is not in Japanese, but the Japanese "translation" is in the CD booklet. It's actually in a made-up language. Yoko Kanno seems to love blending aspects of different languages and adding new elements in order to come up with a new, made-up language. There are songs with lyrics in a made-up (nonsense) language in almost all of the series she's done music for, including Macross Plus and Escaflowne.

This song is only in the Macross Plus "movie edition" (U.S.), during Sharon Apple's "flight" through the city during a concert.

"Anata no kuchi kara" literally means "(what comes) from your lips," but I interpreted it as "(what) you say."
