Shadows

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 and 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 artists' loving hand 

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 

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 have told you Vincent  
This world was never meant 
For one as beautiful as you 

Like the strangers that you've met  
The ragged men in ragged clothes  
The silver thorn and 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.
