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 that 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
Do you know
For you I'd bleed myself dry?
For you I'd bleed myself dry

You know it's true
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
Look how they shine for you
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
And it was all yellow

    General CommentI absolutely adore this cover. I would listen to it over the original any day. I turn the volume all the way up and can seriously listen to it like 5 times in a row.

    General Commentyeah there are some really sweet covers out there, if you like them nice and mellow, you should listen to petra haden and bill frisell's cover of yellow, soothing beyond imagination.
