Chigireta akai akai ito [1]
Musubenai keredo
Sabitsuite koboreochiteku suna no jikan
I'm Still Waiting For You

Machi ni wa kodomo-tachi no waraigoe ga afure
Korekara hajimatteku BAREDDO (Ballad) egaiteita
Hora kakushite kita karamawaru omoi ga
Arata ni umarete yuku watashi o utsushidasu yo

Arikitari nante heibon sugite
Ano koro nanika o motometeita

Boyaketa anata no sugata ga tooku kiete yuku
Yukiba no nai kokoro dake ga surechigatte
Maigo ni naru

Hodoita sono tenohira
Setsunasa o kanjite
Kanata e tonde itta fuusen nagameteita

Tebanashita ato ni koukai suru hodo
Konna ni itoshiku natteita no

Oshikaku shiteta jounetsu wa itsu dakishimete ii
Kamen no naka de sou hisoka ni warainagara
Miushinatte

Boyaketa anata no sugata ga tooku kiete yuku
Yukiba no nai kokoro dake ga surechigatte

Chigireta akai akai ito [1]
Musubenai keredo
Sabitsuite koboreochiteku suna no jikan
I'm Still Waiting For You


We can't tie this shredded,
Bright red thread back together... [1]
But as the sands of time rust and fall,
I'm still waiting for you.

The sound of children laughing filled the streets,
Marking the beginning of a ballad --
See, the unrequited feelings I've hidden all this time,
Show a new me, reborn.

Back then, ordinary life seemed so mediocre,
And I longed for something.

Your blurred figure disappears off into the distance.
Our hearts pass each other with nowhere to go,
And become lost.

I felt a bittersweet pain
In the hand that let go of yours,
And I watched a balloon fly far away...

I had come to care for you so much
That after I let you go I regretted it.

When can I embrace the passion I suppress?
Secretly smiling behind my mask,
I lost sight of you.

Your blurred figure disappears off into the distance.
Our hearts pass each other with nowhere to go...

We can't tie this shredded,
Bright red thread back together... [1]
But as the sands of time rust and fall,
I'm still waiting for you.
Oasis Heart3's Note:
[!!] "Carnaval" is the Spanish word for...uh, "Carnival". (xD) Which is fitting, because the music has a bit of a Latin/Spanish flair to it. ^^

Also, this song has the same melody (but different arrangement) as "Desire". And both lyrics seem to tell a similar story ("CARNAVAL" might even be a follow up to the events in "Desire"). But that's just my opinion. Feel free to read the lyrics to "Desire" and decide on your own. :)

[1] (from Salinde): It is popular belief that star-crossed/fated lovers are joined by an invisible red thread, which symbolizes their bond.
