Lyrics for Jump In The Pool by Friendly Fires:

Inner city sky rise over town at night
You pushed me to the top floor so we could see the sights
I could tell that you wanted to
Jump in the pool
Jump in the pool
I looked at you I knew you wanted to
Jump in the pool
Jump in the pool

I push off
I breathe in
The stillness turning away
Don't look back
Don't pretend
We'll never take control again
And we're falling beyond the horizon
And only the water remains
The fear is falling away

On the poolside staring into glowing blue
Swimsuit issues with my toes curled in the grooves
I could tell that you wanted to
Jump in the pool
Jump in the pool
I looked at you I knew you wanted to
Jump in the pool
Jump in the pool

I push off
I breathe in
The stillness turning away
Don't look back
Don't pretend
We'll never take control again
And we're falling beyond the horizon
And only the water remains
The fear is falling away

Keep breathing
Keep searching
Keep holding on

Keep breathing
Keep living
Keep holding on

I push off
I breathe in
The stillness turning away
Don't look back
Don't pretend
We'll never take control again
And we're falling beyond the horizon
And only the water remains
The fear is falling away

Song Facts

Friendly Fires' frontman Ed MacFarlane has stated that “Jump in the Pool” (along with “Kiss of Life”) is when the “Friendly Fires sound” began bubbling up on the album.

Ed in an interview with Dummy Mag:

I think it was only towards the end of that record – with Jump In The Pool and Kiss Of Life – that the Friendly Fires sound started to bubble up. And they were the last songs we wrote on that record. I mean, I like the first record but I feel there were definite DFA influences and stuff like that. But I feel that this one sounds a lot more like us, as a vibe.
