It's a yellow day

I've loved the song "Yellow" by Coldplay for a while, so I decided to take a second glance at the words. This song speaks of love, commitment, sacrifice and hope. I think these are great things for this sunny, yet chilly May morning.

This video is not the original, but I think it captures the importance of living in the present.



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 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.
Cos 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,
And you know for you,
Id bleed myself dry for you,
Id bleed myself dry.
Its 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.

Interesting how that turns out!

Just like when I found out the Fray was a Christian band, I thought I was in heaven!

Can't wait for all these wonderful free concerts we will soon experience in our eternal home!
