  • 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?

    But 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
    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
    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?

    But 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, if you care

    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 Writer/s: Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion

  • Jema from South Portland, MeI adore the drums in this song.I also love Chris' voice
  • Jamir from Philadelphia, Vathe rythm is one of the best rhings about this song and i also like it when he says "shiiiivvveeerrrrrr" the song really is magical and inspiring i play this song on guitar hero||| when ever i hear this song i think about the girl i like =D good job cold play
  • Annie from LondonThis is my second coldplay favourite track a sad but beautiful song written with sincerity.It says it all,you can feel all the emotions within this song. For you mr.....,although anyway goodluck with ur ms gorgeous lady you're both stars.
    Chris is a talented writer and singer.
  • Chaitanya from Hyderabad, Indiai am left shiverrrrin.....after listenin to this song, an amazin piece of work by chris martin !!
  • Mel from Stockton On Tees, EnglandI heard that Chirs Martin took his inspiration for this song from Jeff Buckley's music.
  • Tanya from Rotterdam, NetherlandsOh, how beautiful this song is!!!!!
  • Alvin from Sioux Center, Iathe only song that makes me want to dance

    and its a pretty funny, passionate, vulnerable dance that draws from this song

    ...i've said too much
  • Alissar from Sydney , AkI love this song. When Martin sings it, i can hear his heart sort of pouring out all this love and soul - its like electricity. its alomst like crying out 'looking what i'll do for you, look how much i care'
  • Elrond47 from Hamilton, CanadaTo me, this song is all about unrequited love - an extremely sad song in essence. It's kind of depressing to hear that Martin didn't write it about a real occurrance, because this thing is so common that it's easy for many people to identify with it.
  • Gabe from Utica, NyThis is is awesome. IT has a nice rythem to it. The guitar is great.
  • Lydia from Dorset, EnglandThis song is really great, listen to it and when the outro begins it does send a shiver down my spine, no pun intended. xx
