My Mona Lisa

Story Behind The Song

I fell in love with a girl who was a masterpiece...in my eyes.

Song Description

"My Mona Lisa" is an endearing tribute to unconventional beauty. It swells with a retro bouncy-beat and gushes with lush strings as it recounts a man's arresting love for his personal Mona Lisa. It's also a subtle social commentary on the contrast between what today's fashion magazines define as "perfect beauty" and the perfectly rare, one-of-a-kind beauty that every woman possesses.

Tempo Medium Slow (91 - 110) Lead Vocal Duet Male/Female

Lyrics

My Mona Lisa (The One)
Billy Schafer


Verse I
In your eyes I can spend all day
And come the night, right here I will stay
'Cause in this modern gallery where beauty runs skins deep
Oh, my Mona Lisa, you're a stunning masterpiece

Chorus
You're the one that I can't pry my eyes from
You're the one who occupies my mind when my eyes shut

Verse II
A billion smiles and none can compare
A one-of-a-kind, so perfectly rare
You have these subtle shades of beauty that can't be found in Elle or Vogue
And for that, my Mona Lisa, I thank the heavens up above 'cause...

Chorus
You're the one that I can't pry my eyes from
You're the one who occupies my mind when my eyes shut

Bridge
You're the object of my fascination
Source of endless captivation
Canvas of my inspiration
My Madonna, renaissance of love, love, love

Chorus
You're the one that I can't pry my eyes from (you know you're the only one)
You're the one who occupies my mind when my eyes shut

Outro
You're the one (repeat)
