Lyrics

I remember when the sunlight had a special kind of brightness
And laughter held a lover’s kind of lightness
Yellow days, yellow days

She would hold me and the smile would spread around us so completely
And the softness of a kiss would linger sweetly
Yellow days, yellow days

But then came thunder
And I heard her say “goodbye”
Through tears of wonder
Now I’m alone and my heart wants to know
Yellow days, where’d you go?

Life is empty and the sunlight seems so harsh instead of tender
And the laughter’s just an echo I’ll remember
Yellow days, yellow days

Now I’m alone and my heart wants to know
Yellow days, where’d you go?

Life is empty and the sunlight seems so harsh instead of tender
And the laughter’s just an echo I’ll remember
Yellow days, yellow days
