"Pools" as written by and David Bayley....
We float before the sea at dusk
In heavy mist and glitter dust
I smile because I want to
I smile because you want to

We sip the wind through lips of lust
And out it comes - warm wisps of love
I smile because I want to
I smile because you want to

Put the flowers in your hair
Wrap your tendrils 'round my chest
I smile because I want to
I am your boy

Shake my little soul for you now toy
And I settle up into a world of noise
I'm a man of many tricks and tools and joy
With a battery of guilt on which to poise

Down by the shore a funny foal
Who bit my wings and ate them whole
You left before I come to
You left before I come to

We took to heels into trees
I hit my head and bit the leaves
You left before I come to
You left before I

Shake my little soul for you now toy
And I settle up into a world of noise
I'm a man of many tricks and tools and joy
With a battery of guilt on which to poise

Shanks of slate fall to the beach
Wrapped in life in ultra-green
Pools teem with tiny feet
And whorls of tired anemones

You left before I got to
You left before I got to
You left before I
You left before I

Shook the flowers from your hair
Ran to me and kissed my hands
I'm dead before I
I'm dead before I

Shake my little soul for you now toy
And I settle up into a world of noise
I'm a man of many tricks and tools and joy
With a battery of guilt on which to poise

Shake my little soul for you now toy
And I settle up into a world of noise
I'm a man of many tricks and tools and toys
With a battery of guilt on which to poise

I smile because I want to
