Oh, i carry a photograph
Girl of the way you used to be
Love looking back at me, now it's just a memory
You were all laughter then
And you were my light when it was dark
How did we lose our way, how did we fall apart

'cause something in our kisses
Said love would never end
And deep down you still feel it too
But you won't let me in

So when you smile like mona lisa
My heart falls to pieces
('cause) smiling just can't hide
All the sadness in your eyes
If i could only hold you
Love you like i used to
But girl what can i do
When you smile like mona lisa

The way that i held you close
The way that you whispered my name
We made a work of art
Know there's just an empty frame

All we had
Baby we could have again
And deep down you still feel it too
But you won't let me in

So when you smile like mona lisa
My heart falls to pieces
('cause) smiling just can't hide
All the sadness in your eyes
If i could only hold you
Love you like i used to
But girl what can i do
When you smile like mona lisa

So when you smile like mona lisa
My heart falls to pieces
('cause) smiling just can't hide
All the sadness in your eyes
If i could only hold you
Love you like i used to
But girl what can i do
When you smile like mona lisa

I carry a photograph
Girl of the way you used to be...
