My heart is broke. It's on the rack.

Not to be sold as part of a multi-pack. 

 

What a year. Filled with friends and fears.

Where you couldn't sneeze for fear you wouldn't get your ego back.

 

I've got a picture of myself as a child in my wallet. I don't want to let him down.

Unawares, unawares - pick a noun.

This city's got the highest walls of any city I've ever been in. 

I just want to see your smiling face again.

 

'Cause life is beautiful if sometimes a little difficult.

But it's the only one you're ever going to know.

 

I've got a picture of myself as a child in my wallet. I don't want to let him down.

Unawares, unawares - pick a noun.

This city's got the highest walls of any city I've ever been in. 

I just want to see your smiling face again.

 

As painfully self conscious as an adolescent girl, Mona Lisa's talking to her Dad.

She needs a loan of money or of a credit card to regain the simple enthusiasms she once had.

Mona Lisa.

Mona Lisa.
