    Andy: “One of my first (cant you tell) 4 track demos. I'd written a tune that I thought the others might laugh at, or was exposing too much of the inner me, so I had to be coaxed along with it in the studio. Don't think anybody really got behind it though, thus it was born to be a B side.”

Lyrics

Scared of love, love and swimming pools
Falling in you said was for fools

But when you're standing on the edge
You won't hear me because your blood is singing

Jump jump go ahead and jump jump
If it's what your heart is wanting to do
This is real life you're dreaming through
And there is no glue to hold you down, so go ahead and . . .
Go ahead and jump

Scared of love, love and aeroplanes
Falling out I said takes no brains

But if your flight is going rough
Your soul will lead you to the nearest exit
Jump, jump . . .
While you're waiting
Time is grinning
Clocks and watches laughing at your indecision
While you're waiting
Worlds are spinning
Find another heart and drive into collision
Knowing this can you tell me you're . . .

Scared of love, love and swimming pools
Stubbornness, I say is for mules

But if you're standing on the edge
You won't hear me because your blood is singing

Jump jump go ahead and jump jump
If it's what your heart is wanting to do
This is real life you're dreaming through
And there'll be no wake up
Jump jump go ahead and jump jump
If it's what your heart is wanting to say
This is really your lucky day
And there is no glue to hold you down, so go ahead and . . .
Go ahead and jump
