Arigatou to kimi ni iwareru to nandaka setsunai
Sayounara no ato no tokenu mahou awaku horonigai

The flavor of life
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 wa nande, baby
?

Arigatou to kimi ni iwareru to nandaka setsunai
Sayounara no ato no tokenu mahou awaku horonigai
The flavor of life
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, yeah...
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
The flavor of life
Ohhh...
The flavor of life...
Yeah, yeah, yeah...

    She is saying how the flavor of life is so bitter to her. The one she loves is not showing satisfaction and that is why she's not satisfied as well. He says "I like you" instead of "I love you" and she says she's used to it.
    I love this song. Utada is so amazing and she sings from the heart. Flavor of life is her best song by far and the ballad version. It's perfect for Hana Yori Dango. I also like Prisoner of Love and her new album This is the One is so nice. I like Automatic Part ii.
