The Straay night



>>>我喜歡梵谷,也喜歡這首歌。

這首歌是民謠詩人唐麥克林最著名的創作之一,講的是著名的荷蘭畫家文生˙梵谷的故事。
歌詞的第一句:Starry, starry night,便是引用梵谷的畫作「星夜」的名稱,
歌曲中許多的歌詞也都是在描述梵谷畫中的景象。






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
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
Reflecting 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 hands

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 in sight
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 on 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
How you tried to set them free
They would not listen they're not listening still
Perhaps they never will



繁星點點的夜裡
調色盤上只有藍與灰
在夏日裡出外探訪
--用你那洞悉我靈魂幽暗處的雙眼
山丘上的陰影
描繪出樹與水仙花
捕捉微風與冬天的冷冽
--用那如雪地裡亞麻般的色彩

如今我才明白,你想說的是什麼
當你清醒時你有多麼痛苦
你努力的想讓它們得到解脫
但他們卻不理會,也不知該如何做
也許,今後他們將會明瞭

繁星點點的夜裡
火紅的花朵燦爛的燃燒著
漩渦似的雲飄在紫羅蘭色的霧裡
映照在文生湛藍的眼瞳裡
色彩變化萬千
--清晨的田園裡琥珀色的農作物
佈滿風霜的臉羅列著痛苦
在藝術家憐愛的手下得到撫慰

如今我才明白,你想說的是什麼
當你清醒時你有多麼痛苦
你努力的想讓它們得到解脫
但他們卻不理會,也不知該怎麼做
也許,現在他們知道了
因為當初他們無法愛你
但你的愛依然真實
當燦爛的星空裡
不存一絲希望
你像許多戀人一樣,結束了自己的生命
但願我能告訴你,文生
這個世界根本配不上一個美好如你的人

繁星點點的夜裡
一幅幅的肖像懸掛在空盪盪的大廳裡
無鑲框的臉倚靠在寂然的牆上
配上一雙看遍世事且永不遺忘的雙眼
就像你曾遇見的陌生人
--那些衣衫襤褸的人們
也像血紅的玫瑰上銀色的刺
斷裂並靜臥在初下的雪上

我想我已明白,你想說的是什麼
當你清醒時你有多麼痛苦
你努力的想讓它們得到解脫
但他們卻不理會,現在依然如此
也許,他們永遠不會……
