Heavenly Dress

Lyrics: Neil Spencer;  Melody and guitar: Steve Lake, Bass: Paul O'Donnell 

Guitar: Adrian Renton, Vocals Michelle Woolley 

A commentary on fashion and lifestyle and trend, and their ultimate irrelevance 

Heaven doesn’t care how you wear your hat

Heaven’s way too busy to bother about that

Your trilby, your turban, your hijab so bold

Heaven only cares about the lies that you told

Heaven doesn’t give a damn about stuff like that

 

Heaven’s unconcerned by the way you dress

Your Friday smock or your Sunday best

Heaven doesn’t fret about your favoured Book

Heaven only cares about the lives you took

Heaven doesn’t give a damn about stuff like that

 

Chorus

Heaven’s indifferent if you’re straight or weird

If you wear a wig or sport a beard

Heaven doesn’t notice if you shave your legs

How you carry your frame, what you do in bed

Heaven doesn’t give a damn about stuff like that

 

Heaven’s attention is on the love that you offer

The harm that you do, the help that you proffer

The openness of your beating heart

To the stream of creation of which you’re a part

Heaven doesn’t give a damn about stuff like that

 

Chorus
