Shiver by Coldplay

For me, this is one of those songs from my youth that is so sentimental and marks a point in my life so powerful, profound and often very bittersweet. Sometimes I’m not sure whether I should laugh or cry with this song.

Shiver

So I look in your direction
But you pay me no attention, do you
I know you don’t listen to me
‘Cause you say you see straight through me,
don’t you

And on and on from the moment I wake
To the moment I sleep
I’ll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I’ll be waiting in line
Just to see if you can

Did she want me to change
Well I change for good
And I want you to know
But you always get your way
I wanted to say

Don’t you shiver, shiver, shiver

I’ll always be waiting for you
So you know how much I need you
But you never even see me, do you

And is this is my final chance of getting you

And on and on from the moment I wake
To the moment I sleep
I’ll be there by your side
Just you try and stop me
I’ll be waiting in line
Just to see if you care

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Did she want me to change
Well I change for good
And I want you to know
But you always get your way
I wanted to say

Don’t you shiver
Don’t you shiver

Sing it loud and clear
I’ll always be waiting for you

Yeah I’ll always be waiting for you
Yeah I’ll always be waiting for you
Yeah I’ll always be waiting for you
For you I will always be waiting

And it’s you I see, but you don’t see me
And it’s you I hear, so loud and clear
I sing it loud and clear
And I’ll always be waiting for you

So I look in your direction
But you pay me no attention
And you know how much I need you
But you never even see me
