  • If you were the Mona Lisa
    You'd be hanging in the Louvre
    Everyone would come to see you
    You'd be impossible to move
    It seems to me is what you are
    A rare and priceless work of art
    Stay behind your velvet rope
    But I will not renounce all hope

    And I'm right by your side
    Like a thief in the night
    I stand in front of the masterpiece
    And I can't tell you why
    It hurts so much
    To be in love with the masterpiece
    Cause after all
    Nothing's indestructible

    From the moment I first saw you
    All the darkness turned to light
    An impressionistic painting
    Tiny particles of light
    It seem to me is what you're like
    The "look but please don't touch me" type
    And honestly it can't be fun
    To always be the chosen one

    And I'm right by your side
    Like a thief in the night
    I stand in front of the masterpiece
    And I can't tell you why
    It hurts so much
    To be in love with a masterpiece
    Cause after all
    Nothing's indestructible
    Nothing's indestructible
    Nothing's indestructible
    Nothing's indestructible

    And I'm right by your side
    Like a thief in the night
    I stand in front of the masterpiece
    And I can't tell you why
    It hurts so much
    To be in love with a masterpiece

    And I'm right by your side
    Like a thief in the night
    I stand in front of the masterpiece
    And I can't tell you why
    It hurts so much
    To be in love with a masterpiece
    Cause after all
    Nothing's indestructible
    Cause after all
    Nothing's indestructible Writer/s: MADONNA CICCONE, JULIE FROST, JIMMY HARRY

  • Alan from Durham City, EnglandIt sounds like Boz Scaggs's "Sierra".
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdBeautiful Ciccone Artwork! Masterpiece is exactly that!-a ballad masterpiece. What Madonna is Crying about Here are the Impefections of Humanity. When Madonna Cries "Because After All/Nothing's Indestructible!"-I Cry Along with Her. I can Hear the Sadness in Madge's Beautiful Evita/W.E. voice and that quality is indeed Something to Remember. Masterpiece=Brilliant Ballad! Madonna=Brilliant Artist! A True Work of Ciccone Art! Madonna Rocks-and Cries!
