"Garlands" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
â??The Winged Painter is on uptownâ?? I said
â??Will you meet me to goâ?¦â??
Washington Square
I'm racing there

To get you at
Noon,
Oh the Nocturne noonâ?¦
Isabella on the way there stops me

(I say) I can't stay today -
I'm off in flight Towards Another Light.
Rest.
Youth.

Washington Square,
I meet you there and we go.

Now He's on the run
He's on the run
From this walking Greeting Card
And Chloe's Kiss,

The Wolf Pit,
The Wine Harvest,
And Phileda's Lesson -
We're not his possession.

In Winter,
Trampled flowers
In Winter

Lovers,
Circus,
These Garlands -
The Blue Pirouette,

The Marriage,
The Mimosas,
Black Sun Over Parisâ?¦
These Garlands -

The Little Swallow,
St. Paul from the window,
From the 1/2 open window.

Eve incurs God's displeasure.
Passion.
Odysseus and Penelope,
Ulysses and Penelope,
The Festival,
In Hell.

In Winter,
The Winged Painter,
The Winged Painter,
Washington Square

Let's go see a Day in May
From The Winged Painter

    General CommentIf Isabella in this song is Queen Isabella, then Tori is actually singing about the person portaited in Leonardo Da Vinci's "La Giaconda" commonly known as "Mona Lisa". I support the theory that this painting actually is a portrait of Isabella I of Castile and Aragon, and not Lisa Gherardini which is claimed by art experts.
