Flavor of Life

Hikaru Utada

Arigatou to kimi ni iwareru to nandaka setsunai
sayonara no ato no tokenu mahou awaku horonigai
The flavor of life

tomodachi demo koibito demo nai chuukan chiten de
shuukaku no hi wo yumemiteru aoi furu-tsu
ato ippo ga fumidasenai sei de
jirettai no nan notte? baby~

arigatou to kimi ni iwareru to nandaka setsunai
sayounara no ato no tokenu mahou awaku horonigai
The flavor of life

amai dake no sasoi monku ajike no nai doku
sonna mono ni wa kyoumi wa sosorarenai
omoitoori ni ikanai toki datte
jinsei suteta mon janai tte

doushita no? to kyuu ni kikareru to “uun. nandemo nai”
sayounara no ato ni kieru egao watashi rashikunai
sinjitai to negaeba negau hodo nandaka setsunai
“aishiteru yo” yori mo “daisuki” no hou ga kimi rashii janai?
The flavor of life

wasurekakete ita hito no omoi wo totsuzen omoidasu koro
furitsumoru yuki no shirosa wo omou to sunao ni yorokobitai yo

daiyamondo yorimo yawarakakute atatakana mirai
teni shitai yo kagiri aru jikan wo kimi to sugoshitai
“arigatou” to kimi ni iwareru to nandaka setsunai
sayounara no ato no tokenu mahou awaku horonigai
The flavor of life

Translation
When I hear you say “thank you”
My heart hurts for some reason
Like a magic spell that doesn’t get
undone even after the break up
The faintly burning pain

The flavor of life,
The flavor of life

Neither friends nor lovers in uncertain terms
The un-riped fruit dreams about the day of harvest

Not being able to move forward
Those hands are desperate baby~

When I hear you say “thank you”
My heart hurts for some reason
Like a magic spell that doesn’t get
undone even after the break up
The faintly burning pain

The flavor of life,
The flavor of life

Words that seduce with sweetness, boring talk
I have no interest in them

Though things aren’t going smoothly at the moment
I haven’t given up on my life yet~

When asked “What happened?”
I answer “Nothing much”
The disappearance of laughter
after a break up isn’t like me

Whenever I wish to believe in you as I want
My heart hurts for some reason
Liking something else more than
something you love isn’t like you

(The flavor of life)

When I miss the person who is
fainting away in my memory
I want to be more openly cheerful
about the white snow piling up

The future that is smoother
and more warmer than diamond
I want to embrace it even with
the limited time I want to be with you

When I hear you say “thank you”
My heart hurts for some reason
Like a magic spell that doesn’t get
undone even after the break up
The faintly burning pain

The flavor of life,
The flavor of life

The flavor of life

Kanji
ありがとう、と君に言われると
なんだかせつない
さようならの後も解けぬ魔法
淡くほろ苦い
The flavor of life

友達でも恋人でもない中間地点で
收穫の日を夢見てる 青いフルーツ

あと一歩が踏み出せないせいで
焦れったいの何のって baby

ありがとう、と君に言われると
なんだかせつない
さようならの後も解けぬ魔法
淡くほろ苦い
The flavor of life

甘いだけの誘い文句
味っけの無いトーク
そんなものには興味をそそられない

思い通りに行かない時だって
人生捨てたもんじゃないって

どうしたの?と急に聞かれると
ううん、何でもない
さようならの後に消える笑顔
私らしくない

信じたいと願えば願うほど
なんだかせつない
「愛してるよ」よりも「大好き」のほうが
君らしいんじゃない?
The flavor of life

忘れかけていた人の香りを 突然想い出す頃
降りつもる雪の白さをもっと 素直に喜びたいよ

ダイヤモンドよりもやわらかくて
あたたかな未来 手にしたいよ
限りある時間を 君と過ごしたい

ありがとう、と君に言われると
なんだかせつない
さようならの後も解けぬ魔法
淡くほろ苦い
The flavor of life
