Yellow
Coldplay 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

I bet he had no idea how many lives he'd impact with this song.

FueledByHate

I'll ruin the song for you. The part where he sings "Your skin , Oh yeah your skin and bones" (1:30-136) To someone from Denmark it sound like fluent Danish. First time I heard this song was someone showing me just that part and I couldn't tell he wasn't a native Dane. It's so perfectly Danish that I couldn't tell it wasn't Danish.
This is what a Dane hears "Jeg sked, oh ja jeg sked en bums" A translation would be "I shat, oh yeah I shat a pimple" (or homeless person as bums is also a name for a homeless person)
