Musical Monday: Yellow

When I learned of I Heart Faces Yellow Photo Challenge, I’ve had Coldplay’s Yellow in my head for nearly a week.  Since I will be entering a photo of Allana for the yellow challenge, the lyrics couldn’t be more relevant.

 

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
D’you know you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh all the things you 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
D’you know for you i bleed myself dry
For you i bleed myself dry

Its 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.

 

 

While searching for a yellow photo for the challenge, I found an old recital photo of Allana at 3 1/2. The stars really do shine for my little sunshine. Her skin and bones turned into something beautiful. I love her so.

 

 

Stop by later to see the actual photo I submit for I Heart Faces.

  1. And that is one of my favorites too! I have been contemplating sharing it for MM. She is so darn cute in her yellow!

    BTW, I saw Corinne Bailey Rae on one of the morning shows recently. I don’t think she was singing the song you linked though but instead another from her new album.

  2. Run DMT

    When I think of yellow my immeadiate thoughts would be this time of year Spring , The Beatles song Yellow Submarine and Dorothy on that yellow brick road.

    I am lucky to be going to Lattitude Festival this year where Corrine Bailey Rae is appearing

    Regards Paul
