Have you tried a Google search Marie? It's from the opera Castor et Pollux I think ...

Sorry! I tried to find it from google.com, but I didn't find lyrics for that song. I'll tell you if I found something later :)

you know, I was wondering the same thing...I'll try to find the lyrics as well... i'm a big fan of opera, and the soundtrack was definitely one of the few good aspects of the movie :P

Here are the lyrics:

Tristes apprêts, pâles flambeaux,
Jour, plus affreux que les ténèbres,
Astres lugubres des tombeaux,
Non, je ne verrai plus que vos clartés funèbres.

Toi, qui vois mon cœur éperdu,
Père du jour, ô soleil, ô mon père !
Je ne veux plus d'un bien, que Castor a perdu,
Et je renonce à ta lumière.

Tristes apprêts, pâles flambeaux,
Jour, plus affreux que les ténèbres,
Astres lugubres des tombeaux,
Non, je ne verrai plus que vos clartés funèbres.

You can find the entire opera here:

Oh, I love that song.
Even though it's very sad, imo.
If I spoke French then I would be able to understand if it's really sad or not.
