Statues and Stories Lyrics


by . From Light in the Piazza.


[Margaret]
What happened here? Well let’s see.

On a central square, in a city of the sun rose a palace.
It was high and handsome gleaming like the crown of a king.

[Clara]
Where would that be? Where is that?

[Margaret]
In the tower, a warning bell would ring.

[Clara]
What kind of warning?

[Margaret]
For a fire, or a river overflowing.

[Clara]
Oh.

[Margaret]
Firenze
On a central square, the beginning of a kingdom republic.

[Clara]
Is there a king; is there a queen?

[Margaret]
There were princes, painters, noblemen of logic and art.

[Clara]
Firenze

[Margaret]
Leonardo…

[Clara]
Leonardo…

[Margaret]
Michaelangelo, the start.

[Clara]
That’s a completely naked statue.

[Margaret]
‘Twas a dawning day unfurling…

[Clara]
From the heart,
The painting of the world we know.

[Clara/Margaret]
The world we know.
On a central square…

[Margaret]
In a city made of statues and stories.

[Clara]
Go on and tell me what they mean.

[Margaret]
It ignited there like a beacon coming out of the dark.
You can feel it…

[Clara]
You can feel it…

[Margaret]
You can follow…

[Clara]
You can follow…

[Margaret]
The spark.

[Clara]
We’re on vacation.

[Margaret]
From an age to an age

[Clara]
From an age to an age

[Margaret]
In Firenze

[Clara]
In Firenze

[Margaret]
In Firenze

[Clara]
In Firenze

[Margaret]
The spark…

[Clara]
The painting of…

[Margaret/Clara]
…the world.
It started then and there and here we are.
It’s a new old world to me.
It’s a new old world and we are here.

[Clara]
On a central square

[Margaret]
In a city made of statues and stories.

[Margaret/Clara]
It ignited there like a beacon coming out of the dark.

[Clara]
You can feel it…

[Margaret]
You can feel it…

[Clara]
You can follow…

[Margaret]
You can follow…

[Clara]
You can feel it…

[Margaret]
You can feel it…

[Clara]
You can follow…

[Margaret]
You can follow the spark.

[Clara]
We’re on vacation.

[Margaret]
We’re on vacation.

[Everyone except Clara and Margaret]
Ahhh.

[Clara]
In Firenze

[Margaret]
In Firenze

[Clara]
In Firenze

[Margaret]
In Firenze

[Margaret]
The spark…

[Clara]
The painting of…

[Margaret/Clara]
…the world.
It started then and there and here we are.
It’s a new old world to me.
It’s a new old world and we are finally here.
