Yellow Lyrics

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah they were all yellow

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

So then I took my turn
Oh what a thing to have done
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
You know, you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do

'Cause you were all yellow
I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah, your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
And you know
For you I'd bleed myself dry
For you I'd bleed myself dry

It's true
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And all the things that you do

What is the Meaning of Yellow?

He's so madly in love that he is blinded ( by the color yellow), his love is like a color that takes over everything, and leads to him not be able to control himself, and have to confess his love in so many ways. It shows his loss of control, vulnerability and need for this other person. It has a hint of pain and hope within. In short, I see this song as his need to confess his love, a love that has completely taken hold of him.

I like this song is very nice but i don't know how to said this song is impromble for me

He's deeply in love with someone, and is doing all he can to be with them. He is so in love that he is blinded. He also talks about all the things he's done to express his love ( writing songs etc), and admits their silly, but can't help himself and keeps spilling his affection for this person.

"Yellow" I believe is the life of life. Based on that he gained his life when meeting her. You've got everything there, the stars, the meeting, the skin, all the elements that form the image of the loved one.

This is one of my call time favourites. It's truly unlike anything else, and I'd love to hear some other interpretations - I think this song is very subjective in its meanings. I find it truly hard to understand the word 'yellow' being used, but I can see the beautiful sentiment of love, of going any distance for that important person. When I listen to it, I always picture a father talking to a daughter, though I suspect it's about a couple.

He's madly in love, and wants her to know how much he has done to prove his love and admiration for them. This song is absolutely beautiful!
