Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul...

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 in 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 artist's 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've 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
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
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.

這是上二技前練的最後一首曲子
二技之後其實就沒有再練過吉他
實際上跟朋友學吉他也才一年多
所以吉他也僅止於這樣的程度

當時對一個朋友說,要等到二技畢業,還要當完兵
才會回到台北,才能一起再練吉他
二技之後又上了研究所,然後當兵

多年以後回到台北
朋友早已經不在了,nothing can last forever
到桃園把寄放在學妹那裡至少六年的爛吉他拿回來
爛吉他還是另外一個朋友的
重新裝上弦,甚至幫爛吉他換了牛骨琴枕

花了一些時間把手指的感覺找回來
彈的卻還是不怎麼樣
英文咬字很差,吉他沒彈好
錄音檔是前陣子當米蟲的時候弄的,只錄了一小段

我想著要把整首歌彈完,發音正確一點
至少吉他不要有失誤,再放上來
懶惰成性的我卻一直沒有去弄
''還是有空再錄一首完美一點的''

也許,不完美才是最美
反正,誰料的到明天會怎麼樣
所以,將就著聽吧~
