    Lyrics

    V1
    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 chill
    In colors on the snowy linen land.

    Chorus
    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.

    V2
    Starry, starry night
    Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
    Swirling cloud and violet haze
    Reflect in Vincent's eyes of China blue.
    Colors changing hue.
    Mourning fields of amber grain
    Weathered faces lined in pain
    Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hands.

    Chorus
    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.

    V3
    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.

    V4
    Like the strangers that you've met,
    The ragged men in ragged clothes.
    The silver thorn, a 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.
