I watch the weary sun beat down
Bathe the walls in shades of brown
In my head regrets spin round
Since we've been apart

Never should'a let you go
But like Mona Lisa and Leonardo
The lines of love are hard to know
When love is a work of art

Could this be a tear I see in Mona Lisa's Eyes?
And is it for the fool who let a love like her's slip by?
(Mona Lisa)
Is it from a broken heart her smile could not disguise?
That must be a tear I see in Mona Lisa's Eyes

Eyes never lie, so I'm told
When love runs cool, life is cold
And every night I don't have you to hold
Something in me dies

Could this be a tear I see in Mona Lisa's Eyes?
And is it for the fool who let a love like her slip by?
(Mona Lisa)
Is it from a broken heart her smile could not disguise?
That must be a tear I see in Mona Lisa's Eyes

Every time I look at her, all I do is picture you
If only I could turn back time
Before the canvass dries
I would see your smile for me
In Mona Lisa's Eyes

Your smile for me is all I see
In Mona Lisa's Eyes
