Don Mclean Starry Starry Night


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
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
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
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 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

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

燦爛的星空
在你的調色板上漆上藍色及灰色
在一個夏天
用眼看到我靈魂裡的黑暗


山坡上的陰影
描繪出樹木及水仙
用顏色在被雪覆蓋的土地上
抓住微風及冬天的冷冽

現在我明瞭
你試著要表達些什麼
及你如何掙扎地使你頭腦清醒
及你如何解放你的思想

他們不會聆聽
他們不知道如何瞭解
也許他們將會聆聽你的想法

燦爛的星空
火紅的花閃耀著火焰般的光彩
旋轉的雲及紫色的霧
映在文森﹙梵谷﹚的藍眼睛裡

色彩改變著
早晨的原野有著帶有琥珀色的灰
陰晴不定的臉有著痛苦的輪廓
在畫家美好的手中平靜了下來

現在我明瞭
你試著要表達些什麼
及你如何掙扎地使你頭腦清醒
及你如何解放你的思想

他們不會聆聽
他們不知道如何瞭解
也許他們將會聆聽你的想法

對於那些無法愛你的人
你依舊是如此真實的愛他們
當你的希望被留在那璀璨的星空裡
你像其他情侶般結束了你的生命

我可以告訴你,文森﹙梵谷﹚
這個世界無法接受像你如此美好的人

像那些你遇過的陌生人
那邋遢的人穿著破爛的衣裳
那銀色的刺
那火紅的玫瑰
破碎地躺在第一場雪裡

現在我想我已明瞭
你試著要表達些什麼
及你如何掙扎地使你頭腦清醒
及你如何解放你的思想

他們不會聆聽
他們不知道如何瞭解
也許他們永遠不會聆聽你的想法
