    Lyrics

    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 the daffodils
    Catch the breeze and the winter chills
    In colors on the snowy linen land

    And now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    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 in 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 artist's loving hand

    And now I understand
    What you tried to say to me
    How you suffered for your sanity
    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

    Starry, starry night
    Portraits hang in empty halls
    Frame less heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

    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

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