I'm sitting here in a boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far
I'd like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree

I'm sitting here
I miss the power
I'd like to go out taking a shower
But there's a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
Well, nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don't want to sit on a lemon-tree

I'm steppin' around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I'll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I'm turning my head up and down
I'm turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see (3x)
Is just al yellow lemon-tree

    The melody alone delivers simple and easy-getting pleasure to me. The lyrics describes a sunny lover who though may be dumped but very spontanously chooses to love life and love himself, even love his unfaithful lover.

    Definitively the tree of lemon looks like to me a song that he(she) speaks about the loss of a very dear being for the one who is the protagonist of the history, can treat about an affiliated love or of pair(couple), who without any reason suddenly loses contact, be for an abandon, some personal tragedy, etc. And precisely not to have lo's certainty that originated this distancing is what makes to him(her) think one without end(purpose) of things and be sorry that the life gives him(her) to have seemed to be beautiful, i know it(he,she) turns in a bitter existence and without reason that provokes him not to find his(her,your) site(place) in the life.

    Lemons are sour. He is saying that this girl showed him what the beauty of the sky was yesterday. But she doesn't come back today. So all he can see is the sour lemons, instead of the beautiful sky.

    Lemon tree is a person; a beautiful, smart, full of dreams, yet chained. It wants to show how strong it can be and how far it can grow. However, it is chained to do what it's designed to do. Yet, when it grows to its full bloom, it will show to the world how strong and withstanding it can be on it's own.
