    The young lady who is the object of affection has just turned 18. She’s thinking, okay, now I can be his girlfriend.

    He’s telling her, “I just wanna be friends. Here’s your birthday gift.”

    Yellow roses are a sign of friendship, not love.

    Well, in the song they signify everlasting love for her father and a sort of ‘goodbye’ to him as her one and only man. Shoot, It’s poetic license not to have to stick with the literal meaning of 18 roses of any color. It wouldn’t have sounded very good if he had said purple or red or blue roses, would it? Gee. Get with it. Loosen up. 🙂

    Yellow is for friendship, so maybe 18 friends?
