Song: Lisa, don’t you ever let go

The longest smile
That I’ve ever seen
Belongs to the
Mona Lisa
She’s smiled nonstop
For centuries
It’s hard I think
To believe her

When I was born
She was smiling there
Just like the queen
Mother
Loving those who tickle her
Loving those who please her

There are two sides to a coin
A face a date and a pound
Lisa only has one side
And no crown

Lisa smiles for nothing
She smiles in a studio
There are seven worlds
Gone to their graves
But Lisa
Don’t you
Ever
Let go

This started out as a musical tune for a show maybe. I could picture Leonardo in his studio when Lisa turns up for her portrait. He becomes quite fond of her over the course of the sittings but then one day she never shows up and he never sees her again. Then things change in his own life and he leaves Italy for France taking the portrait with him. I like to think that it’s maybe a kind of love story.
