    For those who may have missed my previous comments. I compiled and uploaded this so I could explain my love of Van-Gogh's art to a dear friend of mine and thought McLean's Stary Stary Night was perfect in helping to explain. The lyrics were strictly for the benefit of my Friend, who's first language is not English.I never imagined it would get so many views and comments. I'm so glad I was able to share.

    Well you mastered it beautifully because this is always the version I listen to. This was Tupac shakurs favourite song and definitely one of mine since a child. Well done because this is what IDreporter is for and you hit it with a bang 👍🇮🇪

    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 daffodils Catch the breeze and the winter chills In colours on the snowy linen land 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 Starry, starry night Flaming flowers that brightly blaze Swirling clouds in violet haze Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue Colours 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 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 inside 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 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 A silver thorn, a 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

    (I do not mean to draw attention to myself or offend anyone in any sort of way, I'm just getting my story out there skip this comment of you wish.) About 6 months ago I was told that my sister had been being molested by a man I trusted my whole life. He raised me in a very strong Christian family. He always told me that God will always be there for me. Well, this seemed no longer true, because it seemed as if mine and my sister's world were turned upside down and had no one turn to. It took a gun to my head to realize that, even if there wasn't a God, there were still people and things of this world to give my life purpose. Fast forward a few months after my suicide attempt and I stumbled upon this song. I listen to the lyrics and realize, I will be okay. So to those out there who fell lost or feel no sense of purpose in this life and happen to read this, just know that you are not alone no matter how lonely you may feel. Life can throw to the ground and beat you to a pulp, but you get back up and follow you're goal or purpose in life, whatever it may be. Thank you.

    Not really many, who can match so gently and subtle changes in the way music and lyrics are very much rather life and the time of it all passing as you know the seasons in this gemstone...

    In the August 1972 issue of Hit Parade magazine an alternate second verse was shown. Starry Starry Night, Twilight clouds that swirl and grow Christmas clouds in marble snow Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue Colors changing hue Sunshine flowers that grow and bloom across the fields behind the room Where children watch the artists wooden hand

    Basically its the different 'shades' of a color. For instance if you are painting a sunset in the sky and want to show it going from yellow to orange you would add red to the yellow and get different 'hues' of color to paint your sunset.

    This has probably already been said somewhere, but listen to this in the context of Vincent being Jesus. I think that was probably an influence or a double meaning at least.

    I came here after f(x) ex-member Sulli's dead. Some part of the lyrics perfectly fit her situation: 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 This world never meant for one as beautiful as you... Rest in peace, lovely peach unnie. I hope you will find the peace and love that this world can never give you

    Fun fact about this song: This song was Tupac's favorite song, and as he was fatally wounded he told his girlfriend that he wanted this song to be the last song he listens to.

    Yes there are those who love the crazy ones like me, but no matter how hard they try they can't take the pain away, and if they really love you, they will understand that you had to do what you had to do to stop the pain.

    to anyone whos suffering from Dissociative identity disorder or D.I.D . You are not alone always stop thinking of it as an illness . Talk to yourself passionately make friends with him even if hes good or bad . just make him feel that even a conscious deserve to be love. Ive already befriend mine and now we all get along not always but its much safer than the past few years. Dont let them control you unless you want to. Dont be sad you have friends theyre in your head

    This song is a lyrical masterpiece. I think Van Gogh might have approved :-) I only wish, where it says "flaming flowers that brightly Blaze" you would have put at least one picture of his sunflowers at that point in the song. But you show so many beautiful paintings people almost never see. I just got back from Amsterdam and spent four hours in the van Gogh Museum :-)
