    Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890), The Starry Night, Saint Rémy, June 1889, Oil on canvas, 29 x 36 1/4", MoMA Collection 



    Vincent


    Don McLean 


    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 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
