Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and grey.

Slide 3:

Look out on a summer's day

Slide 4:

with eyes that know the darkness in my soul. Shadows on the hills,

Slide 5:

sketch the trees and the daffodils, catch the breeze and the winter chills

Slide 6:

in colors on the snowy linen land. Now I understand

Slide 7:

what you tried to say to me,

Slide 8:

how you suffered for your sanity, how you tried to set them free.

Slide 9:

They would not listen, they did not know how.

Slide 10:

perhaps they'll listen now.

Slide 11:

Starry, starry night,

Slide 12:

flaming flowers that brightly blaze,

Slide 13:

swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent's eyes of China blue. .

Slide 14:

Colors changing hue,

Slide 15:

morning fields of amber grain,

Slide 16:

weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

Slide 17:

. Now I understand

Slide 18:

what you tried to say to me, how you suffered for your sanity, how you tried to set them free.

Slide 19:

They would not listen. They did not know how. Perhaps they'll listen now.

Slide 20:

For they could not love you,

Slide 21:

but still your love was true, and when no hope was left in sight on that starry, starry night,

Slide 22:

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.

Slide 23:

Starry, starry night,

Slide 24:

portraits hung in empty halls,

Slide 25:

frameless heads on nameless walls,

Slide 26:

with eyes that watch the world and can't forget. Like the strangers that you've met,

Slide 27:

the ragged men in ragged clothes,

Slide 28:

the silver thorn of bloody rose lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

Slide 29:

Now I think I know what you tried to say to me, how you suffered for your sanity,

Slide 30:

how you tried to set them free. They would not listen. They're not list’ning still.

Slide 31:

Perhaps, they never will.
