The Van Gogh Complex

G C Am F G

Time stands still 

In a painting

Of a starry night

Heard it all my life

As the wind blows

One more time

Someone’s saying

You might find it sad

You’re a little mad

But it’s beautiful

You’re Van Gogh

You’re Picasso

You’re Rene Magritte

Walking down the street

On a French road

You’re Van Gogh

Donatello 

You’re a Kurt Cobain

Crying out his pain

In a solo

Don’t ask me

Why it should be

That the plight of life

For an artist’s strife

Can be daunting? 

You’re Van Gogh

Michaelangelo

Chipping at the block

Freeing from the rock

A marble hero

You’re a Plath

Such a poet

Writing out your love

Knowing nothing of

But you show it

You’re a genius

You’re a master

Knowing in your head

Years from when you’re dead

They’ll remember

You’re Van Gogh

Don’t you know?

Feel the agony

With the ecstasy

Of every brushstroke

repeat all the Van Gogh verses

You’re Van Gogh
