Dolce far Niente
  1. Joanna Wang —Vincent

    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    Look out on a summer day
    With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
    Shadows on the hill
    Sketch the trees and daffodils
    Catch the breeze and 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
    How you tried to set them free
    They would not listen
    They did not know how
    Perhaps they’ll listen now

    Starry, starry night
    Portraits hung in empty halls
    Frameless heads on nameless walls
    With eyes that watch the world
    And can’t forget like strangers
    That you’ve met
    Ragged men in ragged clothes
    The 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
    How you suffered for your sanity
    And you tried to set them free:
    They would not listen
    They’re not listening still
    Perhaps they never will
    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’ve told you, Vincent
    This world was never meant for one
    As beautiful as you.
