Vincent

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

Chorus:
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 how
Perhaps they’ll listen now.

– Folk singer Don McLean in a musical tribute to Vincent Van Gogh.

You can listen to the song here.
