Go-betweens — Draining The Pool For You lyrics

Lyric: Robert

Remembered your name
Evidently, you've forgotten mine.
You know a lot of people
I know, a mind dulled by work and wine.

I got hired but I got tired of draining the pool for you.
I got tired but not so blue,
To see the cracks in you.
I got hired against my wish,
With better prospects, after this.

Ten leaves,
Ten leaves, on a river bank.
Just like the glass
>From the champagne bottles smashed where they sank.

Chorus

Your interest in freaks
The side show, the low life holds nothing for me.
Because I have seen it
Almost been it, and it's not my cup of thrills.

Chorus

Fade: on swimming pools, hiring and tiring, and
Anything after this.
