Why Mona Lisa Smiled Lyrics

From candles burning, shadows in the night
People praying for eternal life
But my mind just keeps on wandering
Away from this serene and hallowed place
To a woman's face

She was lovely, lovely as a dream
She had the beauty, the beauty of a queen
They say that every man who meets her sooner or later will fall
Even me that they call

The master of invention, the painter of our times
I can take you round the Heavens and show you how to fly
'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

She sat before me, this woman so divine
Something eternal was shining in her eyes
Oh, Lisa del Giocondo, you opened up a world of mystery
When you were looking at me

The master of invention, the painter of our times
I can take you 'round the Heavens and show you how to fly
'Twas a moment caught forever, there was something in her eyes
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

Shame the devil in my heart but I can't stop thinking about her
And what she's doing to me, doing to me
'Twas a moment of perfection, the canvas never lies
But I wish I could remember why Mona Lisa smiled

Why Mona Lisa smiled?
Why Mona Lisa smiled?
Why Mona Lisa smiled?
