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, all the things I've done and it was all yellow

Your skin, oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
Do 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 bleed myself dry?
For you I 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 think that it means someone was in love with this person, but this person wasn't open to change, that person didn't want to do anything new. But in a relationship, you have to be open to things, but that person was all yellow, all stuck in his own ways. But later he found someone else that fit him and made a good couple with him, and he looked and found that they shined on him. But he didn't see that with his first specical someone.
