Pools - Glass Animals

[Verse 1]
We float before the sea at dusk
In heavy mist, in glitter dust
I smile before 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

[Chorus:]
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

[Verse 2]
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 hills into the trees
I hit my head and bit the leaves
You left before I come to
You left before I...

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Shanks of slate fall to the beach
Wrapped in life in ultra greens
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
Run to me and kiss my hands
I'm dead before I...
I'm dead before I...

[Chorus 2x]

[Outro 7x]
I smile because I want to
