"Shiver" as written by Sara Taylor, Matthew O'halloran and Michael Rainbow....
Shiver away, up on the action was real
Somewhere I know that's just the way you are
It's hard to believe that you're a part of me
I can't believe when you carry on and on
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh oh)
Just as the radio goes on and on
Yea, I can't believe you got that right

Shiver away, after the years past us by
Make no mistake we don't know who you are
And sometime in the mirrors, you get to me every time
And I can't believe when you carry on and on
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
Just as the radio on and on and on
Yea, I can't believe you got that right

Shiver away, I thought the action was real
Somewhere I know that's just the way you are
Let me believe, let me be anything at all
'Cause I can't believe when you carry on and on
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
I can't believe you got that right (oh-oh-oh, oh-oh oh)
Just as the radio goes on and on
Yea, I can't believe you got that right

    General CommentI really believe this song is about a lost relationship between a guy and a girl, and how during the relationship everything that happened and seemed to be real and genuine, turned out to be fake and the girl never meant anything she did... and even tho he's lost her, he still feels that she's a part of him and he doesn't undertsand why.

    General CommentThis song is one of my personal favorites. I like it so much because I can relate to it, cept the roles are reversed in my situation. I think it's about a guy who was played by a girl. The girl made the guy think he really liked her, but she was just using him to get some. The guy still has feelings for her, and she won't give him the time of day.

    General CommentI sorta think of it as a person who thought someone liked them... thought someone loved them... but it turns out that's just the way they are with everybody. I know people like that, anyway. and that person just keeps acting like that (I can't believe when you carry on and on) even when they find out that it's tormenting the other person (I can't believe you got that right.)

    General Commentshiver is actually about justin's mom. and for those of you who don't know, justin is the lead singer. and once you know that it was about his mom, you can read the lyrics and it's really straightforward. =] need to know anything else about MCS? i'm your girl.

    General CommentI've noticed that Justin seems to revert back to the word "shiver" when describing failed contact with a loved one.

    "I married the madness who left me alone in the dark.
    I wrote her a letter I'll shiver without you tonight"
    -The Worst Part

    He does the same thing with "Contact was questioned"

    It appears in both "Cambridge" and "Promenade"

    I think "shiver" describes a feeling more that you can't put into words, so you say the first thing that comes to mind.

    Just an idea behind how he uses the term.

    Any other ideas?

    General CommentWell, shiver as in you don't have their warmth with you right? Whether that be physical or emotional warmth. You're cold without them, and shivering. Or maybe the opposite applies to this song.
