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

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

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

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

For they could 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've told you Vincent
This world was never meant for
One as beautiful as you

Starry, starry night
Portraits hung 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 ****** rose
Lie crushed and broken on the ****** 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

For Sally
Starry starry bright
Shines down upon me tonight
Catch the moon in distance sight
With promise of a dream I can't obtain

Patched across the sky
Looking down to me below
Will the truth be ever known
In my soul broken once upon a time

Now I still believe
That the day will finally come
That I"ll be sharing life with no one else
For only you I still will carry on
Till the day I finally
Rest my heart
In yours that wouldn't
Ever ever part

Starry starry bright
Flaming wonder to my mind
Gently ponder on my plight
To ne"er dissapointment
In my life

Shadows over me
Guard the one I hold to be
My saviour come so tenderly
To carry me home with a gentle smile

Now I still believe
That the heavens will conceive
This prayer I hold within just me
The love I now bind with only thee

That in the end
That's yet unknown
This journey I travel on my own
For I will never ever ever doubt
That as your guidance still will shine
That one day it will rescue me
From sorrow binding in my sanity

Till I live life in love eternally

Starry starry bright
