Starry, starry [G]night, paint your pallet [Am]blue and grey
Look out on a [C]summers day,
With [D7]eyes that know the darkness in my [G]soul
Shadows on the [G]hills, sketch the trees and the daffo[Am]dils
And catch the breeze and [C]winter chills
In [D7]colors on the snowy linen [G]land [C] [G]

Now I under[Am]stand, what you [D7]tried to [G]say to [Em]me
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
How you [D7]tried to set them [Em]free
They would not listen, they [A7]did not know [Am7]how
Per[D7]haps they'll listen [G]now

Starry, starry [G]night, flaming flowers that [Am]brightly blaze
Swirling [C]colors of violet haze
Re[D7]flect in Vincents eyes of china [G]blue
Colors changing [G]hue, morning fields of amber [Am]grain
Weathered [C]faces lined in pain
Are [D7]soothed beneath the artists loving [G]hand [C] [G]

Now I under[Am]stand, what you [D7]tried to [G]say to [Em]me
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
How you [D7]tried to set them [Em]free
They would not listen, they [A7]did not know [Am7]how
Per[D7]haps they'll listen [G]now

For they could not [Am7]love you, but [D7]still your love was [G]true
And [Em]when no hope was [Am7]left in sight on that [Cm6]starry, starry night
You [G]took your life as [F7]lovers often [E7]do
I [Am7]could have told you Vincent,
This [C]world was never meant for one as [D7]beautiful as [G]you

Starry, starry [G]night, portraits hung in [Am]empty halls
Frameless heads on [C]nameless walls
With [D7]eyes that watch the world and can't [G]forget
Like the stranger that you've [G]met, the ragged man in [Am]ragged clothes
The silver thorn of [C]bloody rose
Lies [D7]crushed and broken on the virgin [G]snow [C] [G]

Now I [Am]think I know, [D7]what you try to [G]say to [Em]me
How you suffered for your [Am7]sanity
How you [D7]tried to set them [Em]free
They would not [A7]listen, they're not listening [Am7]still
Per[D7]haps they never [G]will
