There is a yellow ribbon tied to your door knob
I knock three times and bow my head
Your silence gives a grim reply
your heart is heavy, your eyes are red
And here we are, standing there
a yellow ribbon tied into your hair
I hold you close, expressionless
as you chant that nothing is fair

"She doesn't care, she doesn't care"
you whisper into the air
"Nothing's fair, no nothing's fair
I still sit alone up there."

One day you will be by youself
free to do whatever you please
You won't have to answer to anyone else
One day you will be on your own
You'll walk alone and be free
You won't have to answer to anyone else
I'm just hoping you'll remember me

And here we are, standing there
a yellow ribbon tied into your hair
I hold you close, expressionless
as you chant that nothing is fair

"She doesn't care, she doesn't care"
you whisper into the air
"Nothing's fair, no nothing's fair
I still sit alone up there."
"She doesn't care, she doesn't care"
you whisper into the air
"Nothing's fair, no nothing's fair
I still sit alone up there."

One day you will be by youself
free to do whatever you please.
You won't have to answer to anyone else
One day you will be on your own
You'll walk alone and be free
You won't have to answer to anyone else
I'm just hoping you'll remember me
