    I always think of that "starry starry night" cover on the fat records comp. (i think it was lagwagon or nofx) on those clear warm summer nights.

    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

    CHORUS:
    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.

    CHORUS

    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 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,
    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,
    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.

    that song "drops of jupiter" by train...that had to be planned for the summer. that eve6 song i hear all the goddamn time. Third Eye Blind's entire first album...haven't heard the second. Sublime, some Phish, and a whole lot of Hawaiian music...but that's just me...no one else seems to get into it...hmm
