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 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,
Reflect in Vincent’s eyes of china blue.
Colors changing hue, morning field 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,
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 head on nameless walls,
With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget.
Like the strangers that you’ve met,
The ragged men in the 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,
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…

Burn to learn…

To learn, we burn? Or, we learn as we burn?

Don’t know, just trying to figure out.

Burn

To learn we burn..

Burn 2

Or we learn as we burn...?

Sometimes all you need is words. Love in silence becomes reprimand.

.

.

With all this poison inside
It’s much to late to decide
You’ve got your mind made up
You’ve been living a lie in your white room

For all the hours that you’ve cried
There’s a year of love that they’ve denied
So you slip through the door
And fall to the floor of your black room
You’re a black room boy

.

.

But all I know is, I always will. And, my music will tell my story. Soon.

Love,

LTM – Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is here! Once again. It comes and goes like a wind. And leaves me wondering what matters indeed.

I guess, its just another ordinary day with extraordinary emphasis on a feeling that is more omnipresent than the cliche of V-Day itself. It, however, reiterates the importance of this universal feeling called love.

Its not always possible to find the answers… the right answers. So, why not simply enjoy the illusions, the ecstasy and the excitement!

For that, I tried searching songs in my collection that had ‘love’ in its title, or were on my tip of tongue recently. And so here’s the list of one of my favourite Love / Valentine’s Day songs! Check out the latest love songs listed here too, which have got me buzzing for some time recently.  🙂

Love, however, is the most talked about, written about and sung about subject. This is just a gist from the shallow mist. 😛

Know what it feels like Living Through Music?
