It expresses Van Gogh’s inspiration for the painting. One line says: “Look out on a summer’s day”. This is giving Van Gogh’s vantage point looking out from the asylum at Saint-Remy. When he first entered the asylum, he painted mainly from his room or the courtyard garden, but later went further afield to paint. This is Van Gogh’s tragic death. Even though he loved painting, his paintings could never love him back. Van Gogh attempted suicide by shooting himself in the chest, which ultimately led to his death two days later. Van Gogh’s artistic legacy is contained within his paintings, drawings and writings. They are everlasting and will never “forget” the style that created them. They are Van Gogh’s eyes that watch the world. This is all metaphorically speaking though.
Must have listened to this song seven times, now it’s your turn to switch all other things off and peacefully listen to this song. Enjoy.
