Every evening in the solitude of his attic room
Hidden from all else, he talks to his silent dolls
[.......................] they say, save but one who thinks,
one who is different from them all...

I want you to notice me! I've been watching you in your lonliness so long
It really is horrible of you to be so work-drawn
I want to be loved, I want to love you. I want to dress up and go out like you do.
But no matter how hard I wish it's true, my body will never, ever move.
I am nothing by myself but a helplessly pitfull stiff-limbed doll;
Without your help I couldn't even force myself to laugh at all.
Yes I have never been anything but a pitiful, stiffly stringed doll
And if you were not there I know I could not even love at all.
If I could, I know I'd cry, but nothing ever comes from glass made eyes.

Then to make her wish come true,
madame came out from the mirror and said "I will grant a human girl's life to you ~Sign here~"
When she rejoiced and gabbed the thing away, Madam caressed her cheek.
As she signed the blood flowed from her slashed palm, a beautiful sight to see
I'm sure he'll be happy for me too, oh madame anchantress, my thanks go to you

[.....................]


...But for now I think I will pretend to be nothing but a doll still
Come quick to me, dear dollmaker, and hold me if you will
