"Mona Lisa" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
You're the last of your kind, Mona Lisa
With a wink of your eye,
Ya make it all right
Oh there's more left to life, Mona Lisa
Let me take you along for the ride

ain't nothin' that stays the same
Won't ask it a' you
Just that burgundy smile you wore yesterday
Say ya won't ever lose

I been down, I been worse
Mona Lisa
Came in last, came in first
But it all gathers dirt, Mona Lisa
‘Fore ya bathe in the light

ain't nothin' that stays the same
Won't ask it a' you
Just that burgundy smile you wore yesterday
Say ya won't ever lose

Oh ya taught me this much, Mona Lisa
I done set it aside
For when you need the same magic touch
For for when you need remindin'

ain't nothin' that stays the same
Won't ask it a' you
Just that burgundy smile you wore yesterday
Say ya won't ever lose
Just that burgundy smile you wore yesterday
Say ya won't ever lose

    General CommentThis song is amazing, I love it. I first heard it on an episode of gilmore girls and I fell in love with just the first line: "You're the last of your Kind, Mona Lisa." I'm not sure of the meaning but I take it as a definite love song.

    General CommentOh, I fell in love with this song in my Gilmore Girls obsession days, it played in episode 4.13 from memory. It made for one of the best scenes of the show in my opinion. It came back into my obsession when it was played on Bones a while back. Which was all beside the point I suppose, but this so is so gorgeous. I love the sound of his voice in it, it's so perfect.

    Not really sure of the meaning. Obviously there is an infatiation with the subject, Mona Lisa, well to an extent anyway.
    ---------------
    It's just a really pretty song, kind of like just being with her makes him happy, and everything is just better.

    "With a wink of your eye,
    Ya make it all right"
    --------------------
    But he knows that he can't ask that things don't change.

    "Aint nothin’ that stays the same
    Won't ask it a’ you"
    ---------------
    So instead, he just hopes that he can have the same impact on her life if that's what's needed.

    "Oh ya taught me this much, Mona Lisa
    I done set it aside
    For when you need the same magic touch
    For for when you need remindin’"

    General CommentI guess it's pretty stright forward, its about a girl hes in love with. A person, who when she looks at him makes everything OK and better. It's a beautiful song.
