The page contains the lyrics of the song "Vigeland's Dream" by Eleanor McEvoy.

Lyrics

I almost see my sister
In a face that’s by my side
Although she has the eyes of someone else
Another face reminds me
Of a man I used to know
In one, to my surprise, I see myself
Was this done for our sake?
Is it art for art’s sake?
This is such a strange strange place
But it’s beautiful
It’s beautiful
And anyone I’ve ever known
Is here with me now
Here in bronze and stone
Anyone I’ve ever seen
Stands before me now
A part of Vigeland’s dream
A part of his dream
His vision for the world
I watch a father swing his child
Around him in the park
The laughing boy is happy as can be
And witnessing the scene
Brings out a funny mood in me
I pray they’ll still be talking in his teens
Was this done for our sake?
Is it art for art’s sake?
This is such a strange strange place
But it’s beautiful
It’s beautiful
And anyone I’ve ever known
Is here with me now
Here in bronze and stone
Anyone I’ve ever seen
Stands before me now
A part of Vigeland’s dream
A part of his dream
His vision for the world
A part of his dream, his dream
Oh, his vision for the world
In one I see my future
In one I see my child
In one I see an angry little boy I recognise
In one I see my childhood
In one I see my own true
In one I see the wonder and the beauty of the world
Of the world
All the beauty of the world
