All the rest is by the way

Hello Guys,

My first language is Mandarin. I am trying to interpret some English lyrics I loved, from English to Mandarin to Taiwanese on my blog.

One line from the song of Why Worry by Dire Strait is not plain to me. Could you explain it for me?

But baby just when this world seems mean and cold
Our Love comes Shining red and Gold.
And all the rest is by the way→This line I don't get.

Thanks you. :)

    In this context "by the way" means "irrelevant"/"of no importance"

    So ... And everything else is irrelevant
