Mona Lisa lost her smile,
The painter's hands are trembling now.
And if she's out there running wild,
It's just because I taught her how.
The masterpiece that we had planned
Is laying shattered on the ground.
Mona Lisa lost her smile,
And the painter's hands are trembling now.
And the eyes that used to burn for me,
Now they no longer look my way.
And the love that used to be,
Why it just got lost in yesterday.
And if she seems cold to the touch
Well, there used to be a flame.
I gave too little, took too much,
'Till I erased the painter's name.
Mona Lisa lost her smile,
The painter's hands are trembling now.
And if she's out there running wild,
It's just because I taught her how.
The masterpiece that we had planned
Is laying shattered on the ground.
Mona Lisa lost her smile,
And the painter's hands are trembling now.
Mona Lisa lost her smile,
And the painter's hands are trembling now.
And if she's out there running wild,
It's just because I taught her how.
And the masterpiece that we had planned,
It's laying there shattered on the ground.
Mona Lisa lost her smile,
And the painter's hands are trembling now.

    This song tells the story of broken love. The man didn't treat his woman right, so she left him. Yet, i think the loss wasn't entirely his.

    This song is about a man who lost his woman because he didn't treat her right. She is now out having fun, like he taught her how, and he is all sad and lonely.
