[Verse 1]
               G     Gsus4 G
Starry, starry night
                   Am            Am/C
Paint your palette blue and gray
              C
Look out on a summer's day
     D7                                G
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
.
                     Gsus4 G
Shadows on the hills
                         Am        Am/C
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
                         C
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
   D7                        G    Gsus4 G
In colors on the snowy linen land


[Chorus]
           Am    Dsus2 D7
Now I understand
                  G      Gmaj7  Em
What you tried to say to me
                              Am     D7
And how you suffered for your sanity
                              Em
And how you tried to set them free
                                A7           Am7
They would not listen, they did not know how
   D7                  G   (Tacet)
Perhaps they'll listen now


[Verse 2]
               G     Gsus4 G
Starry, starry night
                     Am             Am/C
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
                   C
Swirling clouds in violet haze
  D7                               G
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue
.
                    Gsus4 G
Colors changing hue
                  Am          Am/C
Morning fields of amber grain
                C
Weathered faces lined in pain
    D7                                  G
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand


[Chorus]
           Am    Dsus2 D7
Now I understand
                  G      Gmaj7  Em
What you tried to say to me
                              Am     D7
And how you suffered for your sanity
                              Em
And how you tried to set them free
                                A7           Am7
They would not listen, they did not know how
   D7                  G
Perhaps they'll listen now...


[Bridge]
                   Am       Dsus2 D7
For they could not love you
                        G
But still your love was true
Em          Am
And when no hope was left in sight
        Cm
On that starry, starry night
    G                  Gmaj7        E7
You took your life, as lovers often do
               Am          Am/C
But I could've told you Vincent
     C
This world was never meant for
       D7           G   Gsus4 G (Tacet)
One as beautiful as you


[Verse 3]
               G     Gsus4 G
Starry, starry night
                  Am          Am/C
Portraits hung in empty halls
                    C
Frame-less heads on nameless walls
     D7                                     G
With eyes that watch the world and can't forget
.
                                   Gsus4 G
Like the strangers that you've met
                  Am             Am/C
The ragged men in ragged clothes
                    C
The silver thorn of bloody rose
    D7                               G
Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow


[Chorus]
              Am   Dsus2 D7
Now I think I know
                  G      Gmaj7  Em
What you tried to say to me
                              Am     D7
And how you suffered for your sanity
                              Em
And how you tried to set them free
                                   A7              Am7
They would not listen, they're not listening still
   D7              G    Gsus4 G
Perhaps they never will
