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.

    It's about unrequited love. The singer tries to get his affection's attention, changing himself, pledging his undying love, but he doesn't seem to be successful at it. All he can do is keep trying, but it's futile, because his love doesn't seem to notice him no matter how hard he tries.
    He asks if they 'shiver', which could possibly mean that he's wondering if his love can shake off from their normal standing in (society, social cliques, etc) long enough to finally notice him. This may suggest that he loves someone above his station or class.
