Starry night

23 juin 2010
Text of this great song by Don McLean (thank you Bo) 

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 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
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
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

Starry starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frameless heads on nameless walls
with eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
Like the stranger 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….
