Bathsheba Smiles Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Bathsheba smiles
She smiles and veins turn to ice
She smiles and heads bow down
Verse 2
She works the room
Air-kisses every victim twice
She spreads her joy around
Verse 3
Do you close your eyes to see miracles?
Do you raise your face to kiss angels?
Do you float on air to hear oracles?
Verse 4
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
No doubt can cross her mind
Cross her mind
Verse 5
Bathsheba knows
She knows you better than yourself
Confess it on your knees
Verse 6
She shares her love
And sharing love is sharing wealth
Dig in your pockets please
Verse 7
Do you close your eyes to see miracles?
Do you raise your face to kiss angels?
Do you float on air to hear oracles?
Verse 8
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
No doubt can cross her mind
Verse 9
No pain no gain's a strain
But she never seems to hurt
Catwalk pilgrims sing a song
Hello heaven, goodbye dirt and no hair shirt
Verse 10
Do you close your eyes to see miracles?
Do you raise your face to kiss angels?
Do you float on air to hear oracles?
Verse 11
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
No doubt can cross her mind
Verse 12
Do you close your eyes?
Do you raise your face?
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
Bathsheba smiles, smiles
Bathsheba smiles
