Thought I was bleeding to fall in love but
yellow yellow yellow
New York is around, this much I know but
yellow yellow yellow
It might be your car, it could be your mind
it might be the way you take your time
with yellow yellow yellow
yellow it's yellow it's yellow yellow yellow
ahh yellow yellow yellow yellow
I never know much you sleep but
yellow yellow yellow
I'd like to swim deep but is safe
or yellow yellow yellow
It might be your knees, it might be your eyes, it might be the way you sit and try
to be yellow yellow yellow
yellow yellow yellow yellow yellow
ahh yellow yellow it's yellow yellow yellow
maybe the cars and pretty flies will get yours and then get mine
thought I was bleeding to be in love but
yellow yellow yellow
yellow its yellow its yellow yellow yellow
ahh yellow well its yellow yellow yellow
ah huh yellow yellow it's so not blue
yellow yellow ohhhhh yeah ohhhh don't
don't look don't don't

    General CommentHe uses many different things that all seems random. I think this is the genius of the song. He is actually saying that yeah there's all these random things but it's all just yellow, like all the same. Don't look. Don't look for depth - the world is just on one level and it's all the same.

    General CommentWTF?

    You know he's actually saying "you" instead of yellow,...

    and the title of the song is "U"?

    Am I missing something extremely obscure? because I'm a pretty hardcore fan and I've never seen a version with the word "yellow" replacing "you"

    General CommentThere are two versions of this song, the "love" version which was a Yield outtake and the "hate" version on Lost Dogs. One of them was written when Eddie was married to Beth and the other was written after their divorce.
