Ed Sheeran's 'Shivers' full lyrics

I took an arrow to the heart
I never kissed a mouth that taste like yours
Strawberries and somethin' more
Ooh, yeah, I want it all
Lipstick on my guitar, ooh
Fill up the engines, we can drive real far
Go dancing underneath the stars
Ooh, yeah, I want it all, mm
Ooh, you got me feeling like

I wanna be that guy
I wanna kiss your eyes
I wanna drink that smile
I wanna feel like I'm
Like my soul's on fire
I wanna stay up all day and all night
Yeah, you got me singing like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me thе shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And whеn they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me the shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back

Into the car, on the back seat in the moon lit dark
Wrap me up between your legs and arms
Ooh, I can't get enough
You know you could tear me apart
Put me back together and take my heart
I never thought that I could love this hard
Ooh, I can't get enough
Ooh, you got me feeling like

I wanna be that guy
I wanna kiss your eyes
I wanna drink that smile
I wanna feel like I'm
Like my soul's on fire
I wanna stay up all day and all night
Yeah, you got me singing like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me the shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me the shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back

Baby, you are so hot you make me shiver
With the fire you got, this thing is started
I don't want it to stop, you know you make me shiver-er-er
Baby, you are so hot you make me shiver
With the fire you got, this thing is started
I don't want it to stop, you know you make me shiver
Yeah, you got me singing like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me the shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're closer, give me the shivers
Oh, baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over then we'll bring it right back (Yeah)
