Song Lyric Sunday – Shiver by Coldplay

I have to tell you that I was totally planning to pick the most obvious song this week (Hi The Police and Every Breath you Take), but I happened to look up a list about “obsession” songs and ran across one of my favorites by Coldplay.  I’m actually sad to realize that the lyrics to this one are pretty creepy. I honestly had no idea when I fell in love with it.

Also, this song reminds me of playing guitar hero on the Wii with the kiddos when they were just a little bit younger.  I was actually pretty good at this one, and it didn’t hurt that I love the song.

Now, sadly, I’m hearing it in a whole new light…

I don’t know… I might still be in love it.  Is there something so wrong with fighting for the person you love??  I guess it’s bad when you’re being all creepy-stalker about it, so, yeah, I’m thinking you don’t want to make someone “shiver” in a bad way…

It’s Coldplay though, and they’re magnificent, so I couldn’t quite help myself.

I do hope you enjoy!

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

  1. Well somebody already beat you to the punch for what you considered to be the obvious choice so don’t feel bad. I thought my choice for this week was obvious but nobody has yet to duplicate it.

    Anyway, I’d totally forgotten about this song, and yes, it fits. This is exactly how I felt when my last relationship came to an end and it was hard as hell to let go. It was still an obsession for the longest time.

  2. I kind of missed Coldplay – they came along at a time when I’d stopped listening to new music and before my kids came along to make me listen to their stuff. But this is good – and you’re right, very stalker-ish!
