Shiver Lyrics - Coldplay

Review The Song (81)

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 care.

Did you want me to change?
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know.
That you'll always get your way
I wanted to say,

Don't you Shiver?
Sing it loud and clear

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 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 you want me to change?
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know.
That you'll 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 so 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.

lovely song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/25/13

After feeling a bit nostalgic about an ex i tried to find this song, it had become one of our songs. thought it was funny to see this websites page coloured out as it had been clicked before and i remembered reading these reviews quite sometime ago. i find it nice how so many people can be touched so deeply by many different situations in their relationships. its quite lovely.
She had sent me a link to this song then called me a few minutes later crying saying she understood how i felt and had told me to ignore some elements to the song. we unfortunately did not work out as she had to move away for work. but it was still a wonderful relationship and she will always have a small part in my heart. (just thought i would add my little story as many others have)
I am not big on music and dislike coldplay but i still think this song is wonderful. (im not some teenager in highschool like many others posting)

Love or freedom | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/26/13

This song reminds me of the man I used to be in love with..since then I married a man, a different one, I have a good relationship but it's not passionate on my side. I'm happier not in love, I'm freer, that other man only brought me sadness. He was like a better me, an extension of my soul, he was what I deeply tend towards and I lost myself. I used to dream of not loving him anymore and getting my life and my (smaller) soul back. I've got it back, and my life is much more constructive and interesting. I wonder if the novel "CArmen" is about that...Love or freedom?
I also learnt that when love is unrequited it gets much more intense and obsessive. My analysis is that this is because we don't feel any "responsibility", since there is no relationship that grounds us in our love. There is no reality of the interaction of the person with yourself to channel our feelings, there is no outlet, we explode continuously.

Wow.... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/24/12

it is a good song people but really? something tells me you people that say this one person is the "one" and you guys are barely in school...are you sure hes/shes really the one when they don't even recognize you?

i guess this is how it feels. | Reviewer: anon | 1/12/12

Well this guy use to be very good friends with me until he got really infatuated with me. it got really creepy .. he would follow me class by class. Constantly complementing me and trying to get close to me.. I've been ignoring him but I must feel for him because if I was in this situation I'd go 'sane..

One-sided | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/2/12

The guy that I'm in love with told me to listen to this song about how much he feels for my friend. It brought a tear to my eye and even though I can only think about him and her when I listen to it, It describes me and him as well. Great song. Well written and easy to empathize with.

Masterpiece | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/31/11

This is a beautiful song about unrequited love. The guy has probably crossed the line between romantic and creepy. Even so, you feel for him, because he's just so benevolent. He wants this girl and no other, and is willing to do anything in his power to care for her.

Not always unrequited love | Reviewer: True Love | 12/26/11

This song reminds me of when I was working at a store and this guy was totally in love with me. He used to stare at me from the other side of the store and I would just ignore him. He tried for months to get me to go out with him and finally I gave in. We dated for a while and we got married for 4 years ago. I love him so much. I always believed in love at first sight but that obviously didn't happen to me! Anyway, I love this song because it reminds me how much he loved me then and still loves me now.

My love is taken | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/13/11

I have loved coldplay for ages and still do but everytime i hear this song it brings a tear to my eye it's beautifully done and in a way magic. There is a girl in my year that i love with all my heart and would do anything for her but saddly she is seeing somone else (i hate to sound selfish but we all feel it when it comes to this) i feel like i can treat her better then he does but i can't do anything about it and everytime i see her my heart crys and dies but i guess life contiunes and i just have to wait 1 year until school ends and my heart can start to heal

My thoughts | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/1/11

Everyone writing about this seems to be reminded of some unrequited love, but if it's so one-sided, that makes it seem a little creepy (Why would he or she be there by the person's side?) and too angsty for my taste. I've always been of the opinion that love is something that grows over time by spending time with that person, it doesn't happen immediately - that's just infatuation. Unless it's like what some people described where it's a close friend. But to me, I also can see it as marriages or relationships falling apart when one person becomes almost apathetic or changes drastically. For example because of the death of a child or because one person has changed from their experiences as a soldier. I hear relationships can often take a turn for the worse when a soldier returns home because they feel isolated from everyone else because of they've witnessed the horrors of war. Depressing, I know. But it happens and that's sort of what I think of when I see these lyrics. I love the song though.

Heart broken for the first time | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/19/11

This song reminds me when i had my first "boyfriend", if i can call him like that. It was like 2 years ago or so. He asked me out and i was screaming and hughing everybody because of that. But, not everything was like a fairytale...he didn't love me, just a part of me (that i won't tell) and i didn't know that. One day, i had a dream with him that i was singing this song to him. Finally, when we broke up, he said that everything was my fault 'cause i "made that all his friends were against him", but that wasn't true! Now when i see him or i listen to this song, i think that i can get something better and you have to know who's a good person and who's not.

From what I've learned | Reviewer: Aro' | 10/5/11

I've read a few comments .. And lots of them are about regrets or remorse, or because people miss other people ... However, I've been through a weird period when I just didn't feel anything .. It last for a year. A Whole year without feeling anything from my heart. At the beginning I felt strong, but a few months later I realized how weaker I was. In fact, we should never regret what we feel. That's what I learned. Now I know : I am NEVER gonna regret whatever I feel when it's related to love.

Regret is always better than remorse.
What we've done can't be harder to live with than what we haven't done even if we " could have ". I hope some sad teen's gonna read that, and think. Do not ever give up on your feelings : they're what's make you so alive.

Great yet sad | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/17/11

This song to me seems like a guy who loves a woman but she doesn't love him. He is telling her his commitment & although it is sweet, " I'll always be waitin for you" does seem a little stalker-like. But for about 4 months this song was all I could listen to & it is one of my fav coldplay songs

@He will be gone forever | Reviewer: Marcos | 7/31/11

Dear @He_will_be_gone_forever,

That was a profound review you wrote there.
I couldn´t let is pass.
That was your first "love" in your life? I don´t know the answer to that, but I can assure you that it wasn't you last one.
I had one just like yours. And I too let it through. And thanks to that now I am married to the GREATEST person in the world and I have a beaultiful child. I don´t know who I love the most...
Teh only thing I can tell you is that your man wasn´t that one. Don´t suffer for someone who doesn´t corerspond your love. Someone, who is right for you, is waiting somewhere. And you don´t have to look for him. He will find you. You will know the right moment when you "shiver".
My bests regards to you!

Too late, wasted too much. (age 18) | Reviewer: He will be gone forever. | 7/26/11

This song really reminds me of this guy i had a crush on in my school. I felt he was the perfect, the only one i was going to love. I didn't make it. i was too slow, too afraid to scare him away. Like a Porcelain, if you push it, it will fall into pieces. if you touch it, you will remain dirty fingerprints on it. In everyway i cared about him but he "saw through me" when our eyes met.
I once danced with him when we had gym together
(we had to find partners, and luckily i got him), he was not aware of the crazy heartbeat underneath my shirt. I felt the love when our hands touched but for him i think it was just a hand. Anyway don't be silly and wait for long for you guys out there, he is now moving to India to study, and will not come back :( he is gone forever. And forever he will remain like the best memory in my heart.


lovely | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/3/11

i'd heard this song before and i'd always loved it but now it hits home to what is happening in my life. I'm in love with one of my close friends, we share everything with each other but he has confessed feelings for my sister and it breaks my heart every time i see him
