Yellow Lyrics
Jump to:
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.

Cos 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.

Yellow Info:

• The band came up with the line 'Look at the stars, look how they shine for you' after looking up at the night sky. They were recording in Wales, which had a nice, clear sky.

• Chris Martin States ''Yellow' refers to the mood of the band. Brightness and hope and devotion.'

• The song was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 2002 Grammy Awards, but lost to 'Drops Of Jupiter' by Train

• 'Yellow' was Coldplay's first Top 10 hit in the UK, peaking at #4 on the singles chart

• The music video was shot at a fast shutter speed to achieve the slow-motion. In order for Martin to sing along, he had to lip-sync to the song played at double speed.
