Flavor Of Life

Lyrics, Composition, & Arrangement: Hikaru Utada

When you say thank you to me,
it's somewhat painful
Even after our goodbye, the spell doesn't lift
Faintly bittersweet
The flavor of life

Neither friends nor lovers; we're at the halfway point
Green fruits dreaming of harvest day

Because I can't step forward one more step,
it's so irritating, baby

When you say thank you to me,
it's somewhat painful
Even after our goodbye, the spell doesn't lift
Faintly bittersweet
The flavor of life

Just sweet pick-up lines
Dull talk
Things like that can't whet my appetite

Even when things don't go the way you want,
life's not that bad

When you suddenly ask me what's wrong,
I just say, "No, nothing"
After our goodbye, my smile disappears
It's not like me

The more I wish that I'd like to believe,
the more it's somewhat painful
Isn't "I like you" rather than "I love you"
more like you?
The flavor of life

When I suddenly recall the scent of that person I started forgetting,
I want to rejoice the whiteness of the snow lying thick on the ground more honestly

Softer than a diamond,
I want to hold a warm future
I want to spend this limited time with you

When you say thank you to me,
it's somewhat painful
Even after our goodbye, the spell doesn't lift
Faintly bittersweet
The flavor of life
Flavor Of Life

Sakushi, Sakkyoku, & Henkyoku: Utada Hikaru

Arigatou, to kimi ni iwareru to
Nandaka setsunai
Sayounara no ato mo tokenu mahou
Awaku horonigai
The flavor of life

Tomodachi demo koibito demo nai chuukanchiten de
Shuukaku no hi wo yumemiteru aoi FURUUTSU

Ato ippo ga fumidasenai sei de
Jirettai no nannotte baby

Arigatou, to kimi ni iwareru to
Nandaka setsunai
Sayounara no ato mo tokenu mahou
Awaku horonigai
The flavor of life

Amai dake no sasoimonku
Ajikke no nai TOOKU
Sonna mono niwa kyoumi wo sosorarenai

Omoidoori ni ikanai toki datte
Jinsei suteta mon ja nai tte

Doushita no? to kyuu ni kikareru to
Uun, nandemo nai
Sayounara no ato ni kieru egao
Watashi rashikunai

Shinjitai to negaeba negau hodo
Nandaka setsunai
"Aishiteru yo" yori mo "daisuki" no hou ga
Kimi rashii'n ja nai?
The flavor of life

Wasurekakete ita hito no kaori wo totsuzen omoidasu koro
Furitsumoru yuki no shirosa wo motto sunao ni yorokobitai yo

DAIAMONDO yori mo yawarakakute
Atataka na mirai te ni shitai yo
Kagiri aru jikan wo kimi to sugoshitai

Arigatou, to kimi ni iwareru to
Nandaka setsunai
Sayounara no ato mo tokenu mahou
Awaku horonigai
The flavor of life
Flavor Of Life

作詞・作曲・編曲:宇多田ヒカル

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
収穫の日を夢見てる 青いフルーツ

あと一歩が踏み出せないせいで
じれったいのなんのって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

思い通りにいかない時だって
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、なんでもない
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」の方が
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 突然思い出す頃
降りつもる雪の白さをもっと 素直に喜びたいよ

ダイア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
