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,
'Till 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,
Shiver,
Sing it loud and clear,
I'll always be waiting for you.

So you know how much I need 'ya,
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,
'Till 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,
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.

    This song is about lovers and how they don't one another to change. They love each other so much. They want to be with eachother each day.

    i love this song! Depending on what status ur in the meaning is sweet.
    For the ppl in relationships, he's saying no matter how much we aggrivate and ignore each other, I'll always be there.
    For the singles, I agree with Danime ^ :D

    I think this song is about someone who admires another from afar and the person who is being admired, knows that they are but don't really care.
    Kind of like if a nerd likes a really pretty girl and she isn't interested except a lot more deep :>
    The song is really pretty. One of my favorites

    The speaker, who's right in front of the person they fancy; that person just looks over the speaker and doesn't really think of them much more than a friend/colleague. The speaker just hopes and waits for the day the one they fancy will realize that they,too, have feelings of love. The sound of this song fascinates me. ~kg
