Chords and lyrics

[Verse 1]

                 B

Starry, starry night

                   C#m

Paint your palette blue and grey

                E

Look out on a summer's day

     F#                                  B

With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

E              B       E

Shadows on the hills

B                         C#m

Sketch the trees and the daffodils

C#m                       E

Catch the breeze and the winter chills

    F#                         B  E B

In colors on the snowy linen land

[Chorus]

       C#m

Now I understand

F#                 B     G#m

What you tried to say to me

G#m                           C#m

And how you suffered for your sanity

F#                          G#m

How you tried to set them free

                                 C#m

They would not listen, they did not know how

   B                   E    B

Perhaps they'll listen now

[Verse 2]

                B   E

Starry, starry night

B                 C#m

Flaming flowers that brightly blaze

C#m                    E

Swirling clouds in a violet haze

F#                                   B

Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

E                 B  E B

Colors changing hue

B                  C#m

Morning fields of amber grain

C#m               E

Weathered faces lined in pain

     F#                           B

Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

[Chorus]

       C#m

Now I understand

F#                 B  F#     G#m

What you tried to say to me

G#m                           C#m

And how you suffered for your sanity

F#                          G#m

How you tried to set them free

                                 C#m

They would not listen, they did not know how

   B                    B

Perhaps they'll listen now

[Bridge]

                    C#m

For they could not love you

     F#                  B    G#m

But still your love was true

G#m          C#m

And when no hope was left in sight

          E

On that starry, starry night

B              F#                    G#m

You took your life, as lovers often do

                C#m

But I could've told you, Vincent

      E                            F#    B          B   E B

This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you

[Verse 3]

B                   E B

Starry, starry night

B                  C#m

Portraits hung in empty halls

C#m                  E

Frameless heads on nameless walls

F#                                          B

With eyes that watch the world and can't forget

          E                    B    E B

Like the strangers that you've met

B                   C#m

The ragged men in ragged clothes

C#m                       E

The silver thorn on the bloody rose

      F#                         B     E   B

Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow

[Outro]

B              C#m

Now I think I know

                   B  F# G#m

What you tried to say to me

G#m                            C#m

And how you suffered for your sanity

C#m                             G#m

And how you tried to set them free

                                    C#m

They would not listen, they're not listening still

                    B   F#  G#m

Perhaps they never will

[Outro]

C#m F# B E
