Starry, starry night



  • Starry, starry night

    Paint your palette blue and grey

    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 colours 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

    Colours 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...
