Vincent Lyrics

Vincent (文森特) - Ellie Goulding

词:Don McLean

曲:Don McLean

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 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 a 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

 

How you suffered for your sanity

 

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

 

Frameless 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 on the 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
