Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)By Don McleanStarry, starry nightPaint your palette blue and grayLook out on a summers dayWith eyes that know the darkness in my soulShadows on the hillsSketch the trees and the daffodilsCatch the breeze and the winter chillsIn colors on the snowy linen landNow I understand what you tried to say to meAnd how you suffered for your sanityAnd how you tried to set them freeThey would not listen, they did not know howPerhaps theyll listen nowStarry, starry nightFlaming flowers that brightly blazeSwirling clouds in violet hazeReflect in Vincents eyes of china blueColors changing hueMorning fields of amber grainWeathered faces lined in painAre soothed beneath the artists loving handNow, I understand, what you tried to say to meAnd how you suffered for your sanityAnd how you tried to set them freeThey would not listen, they did not know howPerhaps theyll listen nowFor they could not love youBut still your love was trueAnd when no hope was left in sightOn that starry, starry nightYou took your life as lovers often doBut I could have told you, VincentThis world was never meant for oneAs beautiful as youStarry, starry nightPortraits hung in empty hallsFrameless heads on nameless wallsWith eyes that watch the world and cant forgetLike the strangers that youve metThe ragged men in ragged clothesThe silver thorn of bloody roseLie crushed and broken on the virgin snowNow I think I know what you tried to say to meAnd how you suffered for your sanityAnd how you tried to set them freeThey would not listen, theyre not listening stillPerhaps they never will....
