    General CommentThis song probably marks not only the pinnacle of Malice's glory, but also some of the most remarkable harmony and melody ever heard in a rock song... period. Mana is a damned guitar god, and anyone who disagrees should be kicked in the skull. Pair his composition with the passionate vocals of Gackt and we have one of the most truly uplifting and beautiful songs ever written. This song holds a very special place in my heart. I may not know what "osorani ukabeta omoide no naka de odoru futari wo mitsumenaiteita" means, but I can honestly say that I totally feel the words. This song is probably my very favorite by the band. If anyone has a translation handy, I'd be overjoyed to see it.

    General Commentmana wrote the bulk of the songs, and yes, Bel Air is one of them. Pretty much any of the songs that have great guitar work like this came from Mana. He's bloody brilliant and it boggles the mind how any japanese man can make himself look like a really hot white chick. At any rate, mana is brilliant... too bad most americans don't know who he is! If anyone knows where I can find some malice guitar tabs, especially for this song, please post a link here!

    I actually found a translation. It's at the same site the other Merveilles translations I've posted came from.

    Saa me wo akete boku wo mite yo
    (Open your eyes and look at me)
    Hora mada nukumori sae Boku no te no hira ni dakareteiru ima wa
    (Look, even the warmth... The reality held in the palm of my hand)
    Mou itami mo nai naka de
    (In the painless void)
    Anata wa nani wo ima mo omotteiru no
    (What are you thinking of even now)

    Kono senaka wo tsutsumu yoru to yami ni e wo egaku boku wa Toki to iu na no mono ni ayatsurarete
    (I who draw pictures in the night and darkness that envelop my back Am manipulated by the governor named time)

    Oozora ni ukabeta omoide no naka de Odoru futari wo mitsume naiteita
    (I cried looking at the two dancing In the memories that float in heaven)
    Saigo made sayonara sae iezu kono basho de Nemuri ni ochita anata wo daiteitakute
    (I want to hold you who fell to sleep In this place where even goodbye could not be said till the end)

    Yurenagara ashi wo ukase...
    (While swaying, your feet float...)

    Kono itami wo masu yoru ni onaji kotoba wo kurikaeshi Yurenagara sora ni ashi wo ukasete
    (Repeating the same words in this night of increasing pain While swaying, your feet float towards the sky)

    Oozora ni ukabeta omoide no naka de Boku wo mitsumeta anata wa hohoende
    (In the memories that float in heaven You who gazed intently at me are smiling)
    Saigo made ude wo nobashite usureteiku koe wa Ima wo mitsumeru koto wo inotte
    (Stretching my arms till the end [with] my fading voice I pray that I am staring at reality)

    Sotto
    (Softly)

    Oozora ni ukabeta omoide no naka de Odoru futari wa ima mo hohoende
    (In the memories that float in heaven The dancing couple are smiling even now)
    Nagai yoru no owari wo tsugeru kono ude de Nemuri ni ochita anata wo daiteitakute
    (I want to hold you who fell to sleep In these arms that tell the end of a long night)

    Yurenagara ashi wo ukase...
    (While swaying, your feet float...)

    Yurenagara sora ni mi wo yosete...
    (While swaying, your body is sent to the sky...)

    once again, a song about a lover passing on. Like I said, I believe that's the concept of the whole Merveilles album. In fact, I think the songs in their appropriate order tell a story.

    General CommentI completly agree with you, kokoutsu. Mana is a god. I love this song sooo much because it was the first Malice Mizer song I ever heard, when I saw the PV, I was struck with this strange overcomming sense of deja-vu that I can't explain, and Gact's voice gives me chills every time I listen to it. It's fate ^_^

    General Commentthere are tabs, I've tried to learn them, I really like Yuki's basslines, heh.

    General Commentbtw, Gackt wrote most of the lyrics, actually, the Merveilles book says Gackt wrote all the lyrics for the album.

    General CommentYeah, Kurokupo, Mana wrote the music, but Gackt wrote the lyrics.
    He wrote the lyrics for all the songs on the CD... but a few of them made different songs.
    Yuki: Syunikiss
    Mana: Bel Air, Aegen, Au Revoir, S-Concious
    Kozi: Illuminati, Gekka no Yosankyoko, Ju Tu Veux
    Gackt: Le Ciel

    They all wrote the intro, and Bois de Mervielles (or so they are creditted...)
