English translation

ありがとうときみわれると
Arigatō to kimi ni iwa reruto

なんだかせつない
Nandaka setsunai

さようならののちけぬ魔法まほう
Sayōnara no nochi mo hodokenu mahō

あわくほろにが
Awaku horonigai

The flavor of life…… The flavor of life……

友達ともだちでも恋人こいびとでもない中間ちゅうかん地点ちてん
Tomodachi demo koibito demonai chūkan chiten de

収穫しゅうかくとき夢見ゆめみてるあおいフルーツ
Shūkaku no toki o yumemi teru aoi furūtsu

あといちせないせいで
Atoippo ga fumidasenai sei de

じれったいのなにのってBaby
Jirettai no nani notte bebī

ありがとうときみわれると
Arigatō to kimi ni iwa reruto

なんだかせつない
Nandaka setsunai

さようならののちけぬ魔法まほう
Sayōnara no nochi mo hodokenu mahō

あわくほろにが
Awaku horonigai

The flavor of life…… The flavor of life……

あまいだけのさそ文句もんく
Amai dake no sasoi monku

味気あじけのないTalk
Ajike no nai Talk

そんなものには興味きょうみをそそられない
Son’na mono ni wa kyōmi o sosora renai

おもどおりにいかないときだって
Omoidōri ni ikanai toki datte

人生じんせいてたもんじゃないって
Jinsei suteta mon janai tte

「どうしたの?」と
`Dō shita no?’ To

きゅうかれると
Kyū ni kika reruto

「ううん、なにでもない」
`Ūn, nandemonai’

さようならののちえる笑顔えがお
Sayōnara no nochi ni kieru egao

わたしらしくない
Watashirashikunai

しんじたいとねがえばねがうほど
Shinjitai to negaeba negau hodo

なんだかせつない
Nandaka setsunai

あいしてるよ」よりも「き」のほう
`Aishiteruyo’ yori mo `daisuki’ no kata ga

きみらしいんじゃない
Kimirashī n janai

The flavor of life…

わすれかけてたひとかおりを
Wasurekake teta hito no kaori o

突然とつぜんおもころ
Totsuzen omoidasu koro

もるゆきしろさをもっと
Furitsumoru yuki no shiro-sa o motto

素直すなおよろこびたいよ
Sunao ni yorokobitai yo

ダイヤモンドよりもやわらかくて
Daiyamondo yori mo yawarakakute

未来みらい
Atatakana mirai

にしたいよかぎりある時間じかん
Te ni shitai yo kagiri aru jikan o

きみごしたい
Kimi to sugoshitai

ありがとうときみわれると
Arigatō to kimi ni iwa reruto

なんだかせつない
Nandaka setsunai

さようならののちけぬ魔法まほう
Sayōnara no nochi mo hodokenu mahō

あわくほろにが
Awaku horonigai

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
