Utada Hikaru – Flavor of Life Lyrics

Lyrics & Music: Utada Hikaru

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

ENGLISH:

When you say thank you to me,
for some reason it hurts,
Like a magic spell that doesn’t
get undone even after the good bye.
a hint of bitterness.
The flavor of life

Stuck midpoint between friends and lovers,
like an un-riped fruit dreaming about the day of harvest
because of being unable to just move one more step forward
what’s causing this frustration baby

When you say thank you to me,
for some reason it hurts,
Like a magic spell that doesn’t
get undone even after the good bye.
a hint of bitterness
The flavor of life

Sweet talk and tasteless conversations.
it sparks no interest in me
even when things do not go the way you want
it doesnt mean you’ve thrown your life away

When asked ‘ whats wrong?’
I answer ‘its nothing’
The smile that disappears after goodbye
It’s unlike me

The more i wish to believe in you,
For some reason it hurts even more
‘i like you a lot’ instead of ‘i love you’ sounds more like you
the flavor of life

the period when you suddenly remember the scent of someone you had almost forgotten
I want to be able to openly and honestly cherish the white purity of the falling snow more

A future tender and warmer than a diamond
i want to grasp it, in this limited time we have, i want to spend it with you

when you say thank you to me,
for some reason it hurts,
Like a magic spell that doesnt
get undone even after the good bye.
a hint of bitterness
The flavor of life

    ENGLISH:

    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 .

  35. 40 Uruki February 11, 2007 at 4:09 am

    Jaa, ore mo kono uta ga dai suki na no de, nanika iitai naa!
    I must admit that the lyrics are quite difficult and the concept is kinda vague, but I suggest a better translation. For example could you explain where “those hands are desperate baby” when she says “jirettai no wa nande?” which means “why are you vexed/annoyed/upset/irritated”…
    henji wo kudasai

  36. 41 akaiyubi February 11, 2007 at 4:25 pm

    ano ne.. these lyrics aren’t translated by me.. they are provided by rjoy.. my japanese aint gd enough to translate stuff. hehe gomen ne 😉

  37. 42 julajp February 12, 2007 at 3:02 am

    Hello nice to meet you.
    It looked for ..the one that English was translated…
    It was possible to meet a wonderful English translation here.
    Thank you.

    I must not understand well, and pardon English though am a machine translation.

    To tell the truth, there is an expression “Dumpling from the flower” in
    Japanese.

    There is enjoying seeing cherry blossom of seeing cherry blossoms when cherry
    blossoms in April bloom.

    In this, it is a dumpling from the flower.

    There is a comparison of appetite from beauty and amorousness.
    After all, it is not suitable for the appetite though enjoying the
    beauty of the flowers and seeing are also good.
    It is significant ..so…

    And, it seems ..paraphrased flower.. to come from the boy this time
    in the comparison sound and sound harmony.

    Dumpling from flower
    Boy from flower
    The sound looks like.

    Hana yori dango
    Hana yori dansi

    Therefore, the appetite also : though beauty is also good. However, I want
    amorousness.

    Such a place might be paraphrased.

    Though it replaces with Flavour because there are neither an origin
    nor a child when indeed making it to the appetite and it seems to
    exist.

    Is such a shade of meaning put?It thought, and it replaced it without
    permission for myself.

    Please look if it is good.

    It has capriciously written.
    Then,

  38. 43 akaiyubi February 12, 2007 at 10:25 am

    arigatou, thanks for coming by. gomen ne, yoku wakaranai demo, this is a good explanation, kono setsumei wa ii yo, honto ni. haha, atashi no nihongo wa yowai yo ne~! it probably has such a meaning, and if so, it’s a well written song for hana yori dango.

  39. 44 Burbu February 16, 2007 at 3:30 am

    Thanks for the translation!!

    Why i cant understand Japanese…someone teach me , please

  40. 45 akaiyubi February 16, 2007 at 6:46 pm

    oo i learn my japanese from anime.. lolz..

  45. 51 sonzaishinai February 23, 2007 at 6:43 am

    Sonzaishinais translated version.

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Neither friends nor lovers, in uncertain terms
    like an un-riped fruit dreaming about the day of harvest
    because of being unable to just move one more step forward
    why is it that i am irritated?

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Sweet talk and tasteless poison.
    i have no interest in them
    even if things do not go the way you want them
    Life is not something to give up on

    When asked ‘ whats wrong?’
    i answer ‘its nothing’
    losing my laughter
    after the good bye isnt like me.

    the more i wish to believe in you,
    for some reason the more it hurts
    ‘i like you’ instead of ‘i love you’ is more like you right?
    the flavor of life

    when i suddenly remember the scent of the person that is nearly forgotten
    i remember the whiteness of the piled up snow and i want to feel happy honestly

    a future tender and warmer than a diamond
    i want to grasp it, in this limited time we have, i want to live it with you

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    – srry i used some of the translations already used by others. i felt the need to translate it to show how much the lyrics reflect the drama ‘hyd2’ :p well enjoy –

  46. 52 sonzaishinai February 23, 2007 at 6:54 am

    oops correction..

    awaku horiginai = faint bitterness.

    so change
    ‘the faintly burning pain’
    to
    ‘the faint bitterness’

    srry 4 d miss.
    🙂

  47. 53 akaiyubi February 23, 2007 at 10:50 am

    thanks for the translation ^_^

  48. 54 ichigo February 24, 2007 at 2:38 am

    Arigatou ne for the lyrics!!!

    But I think there’s one line of the romaji lyrics is wrong.
    “Jirettai no wa nande?”
    should be “Jirettai no nan notte? baby~”
    Hope this will be useful…
    🙂

  49. 55 akaiyubi February 24, 2007 at 2:07 pm

    noticed that too. thanks for pointing out. 🙂

    Hikaru Utada Flavor Of Life English free translation

    Hello.

    English is not understood so that I may make Japanese lyrics English lyrics.
    Therefore, lyrics were changed into a Japanese expression by interpreting my own way.

    The thing that the meaning makes sense as English is expected even if it translates it into English and.

    The machine translation of Excite was passed on that.

    Perhaps, I think that “Flavor Of Life” is such a meaning.

    **************
    Flavor Of Life

    I for you must be only a free friend and exist when it is called by you, “Thank you”. Because it is possible to think in such a way, it is felt that it is painful.

    I think the magic that it has already been decided the meaning only of it when it is said by you, “Goodbye” and put to have been multiplied. Moreover, the desire that it wants to meet grows stronger extra, and it has a light, slightly bitter time.

    Tasting of such a life
    It is a charm of the life.

    It cannot be said the lover however though it deepens to say that relations with you are friends.
    It wants you to admit from you as a lover while it manage to in such a halfway middle point, and it has such a dream.
    (Humming here and immediately after. I cannot say though I want to say. It is possible to think like placing by humming that expresses irritating such and crowding. )

    Lengthen the neck, wait for the day that ripens and is harvested, and to the way of a
    blue fruit that has not ripened yet.

    I who hesitates after all am very irritated however though it shows courage and it only has to step forward by another step.

    I for you must be only a free friend and exist when it is called by you, “Thank you”. Because it is possible to think in such a way, it is felt that it is painful.

    I think the magic that it has already been decided the meaning only of it when it is said by you, “Goodbye” and put to have been multiplied. Moreover, the desire that it wants to meet grows stronger extra, and it has a light, slightly bitter time.

    Tasting of such a life
    It is a charm of the life.

    Even if the invitation complaint of strangely sugary is multiplied, it can be thought only an
    insipid poison of these kind of things empty.

    The interest is not attracted to such a sweet empty invitation complaint.

    It thinks hard, it wishes, and it dreams, and it is time when it doesn’t go according to such a desire however, and it doesn’t exist in the one that the life was thrown away.

    Oppositely when “How did you do?” is heard from you when seeming to become the lover of both trowing another step「No. It is nothing. 」Very, it inadvertently answers.

    “Goodbye” is exchanged mutually brightly later ..that…

    However, the smile disappears by uneasiness, worry, and painful in the mind even if seeming brightness is pretended. It doesn’t seem to be me somehow.

    Moreover, I want to go well as a lover of a one-sided as it is desire that can meet, and to believe so. The more in such a way it wishes, the extra the more painful it becomes.

    Because seem you and it is possible to think saying ..saying.., “It likes you” as for “You are loved” you as for my thing.

    This is tasting of the life.

    And, because time passes, the smell of the person who has completely become the
    other side of the memory is recalled.
    It might also have been being worried also about the person as this and that
    as me.

    When come to being able to think in such a way.

    It is white like the snow that lies thick remaining quiet and beautiful.

    I want to be obediently pleased with the thing that can be thought so.

    Diamond that polishes, is raised, and shoots the only shine. I want to obtain only as such in the future encompassed by the one that is softer, warmer than the one like such a diamond.

    I am enshrouded by a soft, warm one, and want to spend the time that is so with you
    though it is likely to collapse some time.

    I feel that it is painful shall not a free friend I when it is called by you, “Thank you” for you because I can think very much.

    I think the magic that it has already been decided the meaning only of it when it is said by you, “Goodbye” and put to have been multiplied. Moreover, the desire that it wants to meet grows stronger extra, and it has a light, slightly bitter time.

    Cold is pretended, an anxiously, and these are various tasting in the life.

  55. 61 rika chan March 3, 2007 at 3:39 pm

    Thx, love it much!..thx for u 2, make me understand the meaning….

  56. 62 erikjones March 4, 2007 at 12:42 pm

    it all makes sense now that kiriya and utada hikaru are divorced.

  57. 63 akaiyubi March 6, 2007 at 7:55 pm

    WHAT??? OMG.. when did that happen?? T_T …

  58. 64 FraDanSes March 7, 2007 at 8:09 am

    i was thinking about that…

    On 2 March 2007, Utada Hikaru and her husband Kazuaki Kiriya were officially divorced and announced this in her blog the next day, March 3rd, thus ending their four and half years marriage. The ex-couple stated that many factors contributed to the divorce, including personal changes, different viewpoints on the future of their marriage, and more importantly, lack of communication due to the nature of their jobs. Kiriya, her ex-husband, hoped that his ex-wife’s fans continue their support for her and that the divorce would not affect her reputation and sales. Kiriya stated that they could not “emotionally depend on each other” and wished for everybody to support Hikaru.

    On the night of their divorce, Utada Hikaru performed in the music show MUSIC STATION and was seen already without her ring.

  59. 65 Lauren March 8, 2007 at 1:21 pm

    wow. well thats wat happens wen u get married so young to such an older man. no matter how mature you are, you are both at different stages in life.

    actually i find it stranger that she got married than that she divorced. i hope it wasnt a sad, messy breakup. i DID notice her lyrics were alot darker and sadder than someone who is happily married. i know they say joy is the hardest emotion to express and that its easier to express sadness.

    i dunno…. from the translations i had read, she doesnt really seem to be speaking 2 him directly unless its a point of anger? does anyone agree?

  60. 66 denise March 11, 2007 at 4:45 pm

    thanks for the lyrics!

  61. 67 Anonymous March 11, 2007 at 10:43 pm

    sankyuu~

  62. 68 akaiyubi March 12, 2007 at 8:50 am

    4 years of marriage plus lots of time away from each other. n on their part they have career problems too (i’m sure hikki realised she’s not doing as well as before..) surely her lyrics would be darker (but wad about keep tryin’?)

    and then, since it was a mutual breakup, as depicted in the lyrics, hikki sounded like kiriya has changed, not the person in her memory anymore, fading(yes the lyrics says fainting.. =.=”) away. More of a feeling thing then the rumored affair. anyone knows more about the rumor??

  63. 69 Haru March 14, 2007 at 9:08 pm

    There were some mistakes in the translations, so I changed some things…
    My translation might not be perfect either 😛
    But at least I tried.

    Flavor of life (Utada Hikaru)

    When you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Neither friends nor lovers, in uncertain terms
    like an un-riped fruit dreaming about the day of harvest
    because of being unable to just move one more step forward
    It’s just so frustrating

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Sweet talk and tasteless conversations.
    i have no interest in them
    even when things do not go the way I want them
    you make me believe that there is still something in life

    When asked ‘ whats wrong?’
    i answer ‘its nothing’
    The smile that disappears after goodbye
    I’m not like myself anymore

    the more i wish to believe in you,
    for some reason it hurts even more
    ‘i like you’ instead of ‘i love you’ is more like the person I knew
    the flavor of life

    when i suddenly remember the scent of the person that I’ve nearly forgotten
    If only I could cherish the white color of the falling snow like I used to

    a future tender and warmer than a diamond
    i want to grasp it, in this limited time we have, i want to live it with you
    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    I fixed it again (^_^;) I just realized there was one more thing to fix, I’m sure there will be other people who would want to fix it again, in such a case go ahead. Translating is so hard!!

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Neither friends nor lovers, in uncertain terms
    like an un-riped fruit dreaming about the day of harvest
    because of being unable to just move one more step forward
    It’s just so frustrating

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Sweet talk and tasteless conversations.
    i have no interest in them
    even when things do not go the way I want them
    you make me believe that there is still something in life

    When asked ‘ whats wrong?’
    i answer ‘its nothing’
    The smile that disappears after goodbye
    I’m not like myself anymore

    the more i wish to believe in you,
    for some reason it hurts even more
    ‘i like you’ instead of ‘i love you’ is more like the person I knew
    the flavor of life

    I wish I could cherish the white color of the falling snow like I used to
    by the time I would remember the scent of the person I’ve nearly forgotten

    a future tender and warmer than a diamond
    i want to grasp it, in this limited time we have, i want to live it with you
    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    the faintly burning pain.
    The flavor of life

    Those who want to watch Hana Yori Dango (Season 1 and 2) you may download the movie files on this website for free. http://www.sars-fansubs.com. This is legal, so don’t worry about cheating, also have sub-titles for those who can’t understand japanese (like me he he). Need to have bit torrent client.

  82. 88 Jane April 3, 2007 at 8:36 pm

    Where do you find Hana Yori Dango the Japanese drama version? I’ve only been able to watch Meteor Garden and am wondering if the Japanese version is better.

  83. 89 akaiyubi April 3, 2007 at 10:26 pm

    you can try youtube. ive watched meteor garden too, personally i liked hana yori dango better. it’s more lighthearted, but still with the drama. meteor garden gave me the sad sad feeling all the way..

  84. 90 oHm!yA_sk April 4, 2007 at 6:10 pm

    i really love this song ever since i heard this in hyd2!!!!!!!!! and i love utada more!!!!

  85. 92 tiA April 8, 2007 at 2:11 pm

    hey!
    thanks for the lyrics and the translation 🙂
    great song! lovin the songstress, the song and one who put up e lyrics XD

  86. 93 sho April 9, 2007 at 7:15 pm

    some of the translation is wrong.
    i’m pretty sure this is 100% accurate.

    When you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    a hint of bitterness.
    The flavor of life

    Stuck midpoint between friends and lovers,
    like an un-riped fruit dreaming about the day of harvest
    because of being unable to just move one more step forward
    what’s causing this frustration baby

    When you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesn’t
    get undone even after the good bye.
    a hint of bitterness
    The flavor of life

    Sweet talk and tasteless conversations.
    it sparks no interest in me
    even when things do not go the way you want
    it doesnt mean you’ve thrown your life away

    When asked ‘ whats wrong?’
    I answer ‘its nothing’
    The smile that disappears after goodbye
    It’s unlike me

    The more i wish to believe in you,
    For some reason it hurts even more
    ‘i like you a lot’ instead of ‘i love you’ sounds more like you
    the flavor of life

    the period when you suddenly remember the scent of someone you had almost forgotten
    I want to be able openly and honestly cherish the white purity of the falling snow more

    A future tender and warmer than a diamond
    i want to grasp it, in this limited time we have, i want to spend it with you

    when you say thank you to me,
    for some reason it hurts,
    Like a magic spell that doesnt
    get undone even after the good bye.
    a hint of bitterness
    The flavor of life

  87. 94 sho April 9, 2007 at 7:17 pm

    mistake: I want to be able openly and honestly cherish the white purity of the falling snow more

    correction: I want to be able to openly and honestly cherish the white purity of the falling snow more

    Good translation! Except for the line “jirettainonannotte”
    should be ” It’s just really frustrating ” I think.

  102. 110 mechan May 1, 2007 at 8:38 pm

    whenever i hear this song, it reflects me somehow and i can really connect with it together with the scenes in Hana Yori Dango….

  133. 142 onigaijin May 21, 2007 at 5:39 pm

    G’day, fantastic translation BUT there are some key mistakes in the romaji version you’ve used which may have affected your final interpreting. I haven’t gone through and read all the comments to see if you’ve changed anything though, so if you have, just ignore this please.

    “ありがとう”と君に言われるとなんだか切ない
    さようならの後も解けぬ魔法淡くほろ苦い
    The flavour of life

    There’s something saddening about when you tell me “thank you”
    and the magic that stays even after goodbye
    is a touch bittersweet
    The flavour 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
    後一歩が踏み出せないせいで
    じれったいのなんのって, baby?

    At this, neither friends nor lovers halfway point,
    like unripened fruit dreaming of harvest day
    because you can’t take just one more step.
    what’s with being vexatious all about, baby?

    ありがとうと君に言われるとなんだか切ない
    さようならの後も解けぬ魔法淡くほろ苦い
    The flavour of life…..

    There’s something saddening about when you tell me “thank you”
    and the magic that stays even after goodbye
    is a touch bittersweet
    The flavour of life…..

    甘いだけの誘い文句味気のないトーク
    そんのものには興味はそそられない
    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

    Shallow invites and dull conversations,
    theres nothing there that can arouse interest in me.
    Even when things don’t go your way
    That’s no reason to throw your life away!

    ”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切ない
    ”愛してるよ”よりも”大好き”の方が君らしいじゃない?
    The flavour of ife…..

    “What’s wrong?”, you suddenly ask. “Uum, it’s nothing”
    but the fading smile on my face after “goodbye” just isn’t me.
    The more i wish to believe (in us), somehow makes me even sadder
    Rather than “I love you” isn’t “I like you” more you?
    The flavour of life.

    忘れかけていた人の香りを突然思い出すころ
    降り積る雪の白さをもっと素直に喜びたいよ

    Those times, when out of the blue, i remember the fragrance of the one i’d almost forgotten.
    I just want to be able to enjoy the pure white of piled up snow!!

    ダイヤモンドよりも柔らかくて温かな未来を手にしたいよ
    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切ない
    さようならの後も解けぬ魔法淡くほろ苦い
    The flavour of life…..

    Rather than a diamond, All I want is a future thats soft and warm.
    To be able to spend even just a limited time with you.
    There’s something saddening about when you tell me “thank” you
    and the magic that stays even after goodbye
    is a touch bittersweet
    The flavour of life…..

    Oh gosh, I’m a fan of Utada and her songs. Sooo poignant and humane…. I really love it. The bitterness of sweet words. Pretense cannot hide the real effect of conflicting emotions.

    The flavor of life, indeed. Love it.

  164. 173 Analucia June 8, 2007 at 1:04 pm

    I have the spanish version (Tengo la versión en español – Sabor a vida):

    El Sabor a Vida

    Cuando dices gracias por alguna razón duele,
    Como un hechizo que no desaparece después del adiós, queda un rastro de amargura.
    El sabor a vida, el sabor a vida.

    El punto medio entre amigos y amantes
    Como un fruto que no maduró soñando con le día de la cosecha
    Porque no puede sólo dar un paso adelante
    Cual es la causa de esta frustración baby?

    Cuando dices gracias por alguna razón duele,
    Como un hechizo que no desaparece después del adiós, queda un rastro de amargura.
    El sabor a vida, el sabor a vida.

    Conversaciones dulces e insípidas
    No me provocan ningún interés.
    Incluso cuando las cosas no van del modo que quieres
    No significa que hayas votado tu vida lejos

    Cuando preguntas ¿Qué está mal? Yo respondo “Nada”
    La risa desaparece después del adiós, esto no es propio de mí.
    Lo que más deseo es creer en ti pero por algo esto duele aún más.
    “Me gustas mucho” en vez de “Te amo” sonidos como tú
    El sabor a vida.

    El momento cuando tu de repente recuerdas el olor de alguien que casi habías olvidado
    Quiero ser capaz de abierta y francamente acoger la pureza de la blanca nieve que decrece más.

    Quiero tener un futuro más cariñoso y caliente que un diamante,
    El tiempo limitado que tenemos quiero pasarlo contigo.
    Cuando dices gracias por alguna razón duele,
    Como un hechizo que no desaparece después del adiós. como un rastro de amargura.
    El sabor a vida, el sabor a vida.

  165. 174 Analucia June 8, 2007 at 1:09 pm

    Two new studies show why some people are more attractive for members of the opposite sex than others.

    The University of Florida, Florida State University found that physically attractive people almost instantly attract the attention of the interlocutor, sobesednitsy with them, literally, it is difficult to make eye. This conclusion was reached by a series of psychological experiments, which were determined by the people who believe in sending the first seconds after the acquaintance. Here, a curious feature: single, unmarried experimental preferred to look at the guys, beauty opposite sex, and family, people most often by representatives of their sex.

    The authors believe that this feature developed a behavior as a result of the evolution: a man trying to find a decent pair to acquire offspring. If this is resolved, he wondered potential rivals. Detailed information about this magazine will be published Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

    In turn, a joint study of the Rockefeller University, Rockefeller University and Duke University, Duke University in North Carolina revealed that women are perceived differently by men smell. During experiments studied the perception of women one of the ingredients of male pheromone-androstenona smell, which is contained in urine or sweat.

    The results were startling: women are part of this repugnant odor, and the other part is very attractive, resembling the smell of vanilla, and the third group have not felt any smell. The authors argue that the reason is that the differences in the receptor responsible for the olfactory system, from different people are different.

    It has long been proven that mammals (including human) odor is one way of attracting the attention of representatives of the opposite sex. A detailed article about the journal Nature will publish.

    No matter how hard I try, I somehow manage to develop at least a single tear for you. Is this what they call love?? Every time I remember you it makes me happy for about a second but it makes me cry for the whole night, is this fair?? I try to make my days less gloomy but memories of you haunt me. I try to let you go but my heart beckons me to stop. Inside my body I ‘m at war with my mind and my heart…… but deep down I know I’ll survive because my mind will make my heart forget about you ~

    When you say “thank you” to me,
    It hurts for one thing,
    The lingering magic after “goodbye” is faintly burning
    The flavor of life
    The flavor of life

    Between the state of being friends and lovers,
    We are green fruits dreaming of the harvest day
    I can’t step a move forward
    What’s vexing me?

    When you say “thank you” to me,
    It hurts for one thing,
    The lingering magic after “goodbye” is faintly burning,
    The flavor of life
    The flavor of life

    Sweet words used to entice
    It’s just all bland talk
    Those things doesn’t pique my interest

    When things don’t go as planned
    Life isn’t something thrown away

    When I’m asked “what’s wrong”
    I answer “nothing.”
    But after that goodbye,
    my smile fades away
    This isn’t like me anymore

    The more I wish that I can believe you
    It hurts inside
    I prefer “I like you” more than “I love you”
    because it isn’t more like you
    The flavor of life

    When I suddenly remember the fragrance of the one I’ve already forgotten
    I would like to be able to enjoy more the whiteness of the falling snow

    A future softer and warmer than a diamond
    Is what i want to have in my hands
    And in this limited time I have,
    I want to spend it with you.

    When you say “thank you” to me,
    It hurts for one thing,
    The lingering magic after “goodbye” is faintly burning,
    The flavor of life
    The flavor of life

    Sore wa Boku no honyaku..

  343. 361 someone August 3, 2008 at 12:17 am

    Thanks alot for the lyrics!!

  344. 362 honeywhiska August 7, 2008 at 2:37 pm

    ummmmm yea… i just have to say, i dont get why people are so crazy about utada hikaru.

    firstly, the stuff they say about her is like… why compliment someone when you don’t even know them. i bet half of them haven’t even been to japan, let alone met utada hikaru in person. they havent even seen her concerts personally, so how wouuld they know what she’s like. besides, all the nice things supposedly said about her, would utada even care ?

    why do you say such things about her i don’t know. she’s probably too busy and have time on her hands to worry about what people say.

    i dont like utada hikaru. she can’t hold a note, and i think she’s not a very nice person.
