Josh Groban-Sings “Vincent”

“Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)”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 daffodils Catch the breeze and the winter chills In colours on the snowy linen landNow 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 nowStarry, starry night Flaming flowers that brightly blaze Swirling clouds and violet haze Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue Colours changing hue Morning fields of amber grain Weathered faces lined in pain Are soothed beneath the artists’ loving handNow 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 nowFor 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 youLike 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 snowNow 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…
