Mona Lisa Lyrics - The All-American Rejects

Review The Song (11)

Here's another pity there's another chance
Try to learn a lesson but you can't.
If we can burn a city in futures and in past,
without a change our lives will never last.
Cause' we're going fast.

You can sit beside me when the world comes down, if it doesn't matter
then just turn around.
We don't need our bags and we can just leave town.
You can sit beside me when the world comes down.

What can we do better, when will we know how? A man says from a
sidewalk to a crowd.
If we can change the weather, if you want it to yourself.
If you can't, i guess we all need help, yeah, I need help.

(repeat chorus)

We say
We do
The lies
The truth
All I need is next to me.

Mmmmmmmmm noooooowwww we're going fast.

You can sit beside me when the world comes down, if it doesn't matter
then just turn around.
You be the queen and i'll be your clown,
You can sit beside me when the world comes down

Great Song Mona Lisa (When the World comes Down | Reviewer: Laura Spears, Den Colo | 4/13/11

I have never heard of the band "All American Rejects" til I saw them on one of my fav soap opera shows "One Live To Live" I believe 3 yrs ago. Plz dont be offensive but you all sounded kind of weird when you was singing this song->When The World Comes Down, I love the song really I do I also like the songs I Wanna, & The Wind Blows. My bro had burned 2 songs on a cd I wanna & Wind Blows for me but mostly I wanted the song When the World Comes Down on that CD but my bro couldnt find it. Now I know why he couldnt find it so Im gonna send this to him so he can burn the song Mona Lisa from the album "When the World Comes Down". You all are great I hope you all make another guest Appearence on OLTL again some day. Snoop Doggy Dog was a guest on OLTL 2 times he sang great also he sang Senusal Seduction on that show plus maybe 2 other ones but I dont remember. Anyways you all keep up the great work in writing your songs & singin & hope to see you all again on OLTL, have a great day

Your friend always

I Absolutely Adore this song!
The lyrics are so beautifully written, they stay with you for a long time after it's played.
My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly three years now and we've just moved in together, unfortunately my parents don't like him and won't talk to me as long as I'm living with him, they made me feel as though I had to choose between them, and although I love my parents I love him too - Which makes me really feel the lyrics because my whole world changed when my parennts rejected me.

We're going fast... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/10

This song always make me think of my friend who ran away after trying unsuccessfully to get clean/sober. We used to blast this song in her car, but I'd never really paid attention to the lyrics until one day when I was listening to it after she left, and it describes the situation so perfectly. "Here's another pity/ There's another chance/ You tried to learn a lesson but you can't." And the part where it says "Without a change our lives will never last/ Cause we're going fast" describes addiction perfectly, and that's where she had been, but she felt like she couldn't succeed, so she gave up and "left town." I used to think of it as a really sweet, comforting song about people loving each other unconditionally, no matter what happens, but now it depresses the shit out of me. I feel like the guy singing it is laughing at me, cuz I felt like "the world came down", but I was alone when it happened, and so was my friend. Still like it though.

Dooooooooooooodeeeeeeeeee | Reviewer: Britnee | 6/11/09

It reminds me of my x bf who i broke up with to go out with this other guy, and when i finally did go out with the other guy i relised that im in love with my x. so i told him to listen to this song and now we're getting back together once i get the guts to break up with this loser.(: Thank's all american rejects♄

In the extended album they have a video where Tyson and Nick explain the record. Tyson says that it's about enjoying life until the end, and looking at it in a positive light. He also said it was the perfect, simple song, like their Mona Lisa.

one of my favorites | Reviewer: kim | 2/1/09

The song is so great. It has so much feeling in it. I just have one question: Why is it called "Mona Lisa"? Is that a cover for the nmae of who he is singing to, or something like that ? I still think its an amazing song.

Kinda Gay | Reviewer: kalani2123 | 12/9/08

I just saw them last night at the House of Blues in San Diego. Great show, as they are a kick-ass band. Not that it matters, but when the guys performed this song, Tyler said at the end "You can come inside me when the world comes down."

I wasn't the only one who was confused. Everyone just stopped and looked at each other and was like "Did he really just say that?"

Don't think he is gay, but why the hell would he say that for? Just kinda random in my book....
