^Considering ALL the other lyrics on Party Queen, Ayu was the one not communicating...

The album seens to be about how her marriage failed cuz she tends to ignore her personal problems...


I live around AHS (Ayumi Haters Sekai)

interesting take...and the cynicism wouldn't surprise me at this point.

I hope ayu finds love again ... but for real.

Seems like its a song about ignoring known problems. I think the reference to diamonds and roses symbolizes her unwillingness to fall into the same slump, sorta like, "Who needs love, when there's diamonds and roses?"
I like your interpretation. This way lyrics make more sense to me.

thnx 4 the translation

Mama’s face looks even more depressed

"Depressed" is "gakkari shita" or "rakutan shita", different from "fukigen na". I think "sullen" or "ill-tempered" would be better.

I should spend more time on getting the exact adjective meanings. Thanks again. I really appreciate you taking the time to point out these things

Maybe Ayu is Mama and Mannie was Papa? We're the little kids watching? Or she is both Mama and the little kid pretending not to notice? Hmmm...

Interesting (and somewhat amusing with popcorn and nacho's.. hmmm nacho's...) lyrics though.
