Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness of the soul

Shadows on the hill
Sketch the trees and the 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
How you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They wouldn't listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors are changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
All soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now I understand just what you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free
They wouldn't listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

And no, they did not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left in sight
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
