LyricsEdit

Starry, starry night 
Paint your palette blue and gray 
Look out on a summer's day 
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul 
Shadows on the hills 
Sketch the trees and daffodils 
Catch the breeze and the winter chills 
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand 
What you tried to say to me 
And how you suffered for your sanity 
And how you tried to set them free 
They would not listen 
They did not know how 
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night 
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze 
Swirling clouds and violet haze 
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue  Colors changing hue  Morning fields of amber grain  Weathered faces lined in pain  Are soothed beneath the artists' loving hand 

Now I understand  What you tried to say to me  And how you suffered for your sanity  And how you tried to set them free  They would not listen  They did not know how  Perhaps they'll listen now 

For they could not love you  But still your love was true  And when no hope was left inside  On that starry, starry night  You took your life as lovers often do  But I could have told you Vincent  This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you 

Like the strangers that you've met  The ragged men in ragged clothes  The silver thorn of bloody rose  Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow 

Now I think I know  What you tried to say to me  And how you suffered for your sanity  And how you tried to set them free  They would not listen  They're not listening still  Perhaps they never will...
