Wasn't quite sure before, but now I'm believing.
I know there were necessary things about you leaving.
Maybe I knew right well how I was on about it.
Twice over and again I learned to doubt it.

And I'm sorry. I blew it.
I'll never say there ain't nothin' to it.
And I saw it and I knew it.
I know you know what it's still doing.

Thought if I gave an inch, you might not run a mile.
Baby now I see why the Mona Lisa smiles.
She smiles at me. x5

Thought I might still try to soften up the edges.
I backed up, stepped away and you still seemed restless.

And I saw it and I knew it.
I recognize what it's still doing.
I deserved it, you knew it.
You stood close to the line when I drew it.

Thought if I gave an inch, you might not run a mile.
Baby now I see why the Mona Lisa smiles.
She smiles at me. x3

And I saw it and I knew it.
I closed my eyes to stride right through it.
Had it coming and I knew it.
I needed it and now I've gone through it.

Thought if I gave an inch, you might not run a mile.
Baby now I see why the Mona Lisa smiles.
Thought if I gave an inch, you might not run a mile.
Baby now I see why the Mona Lisa smiles.
She smiles at me. x10
