Down to you,
You're pushing and pulling me down to you
But I don't know what I,
Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself
From saying something that I should have never thought
Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself
From saying something that I should have never thought of you, of you

You're pushing and pulling me down to you,
But I don't know what I want,
No I don't know what I want

You got it, you got it,
Some kind of magic
Hypnotic, hypnotic,
You're leaving me breathless
I hate this, I hate this,
You're not the one I believe in
With God as my witness

Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself,
From saying something that I should have never thought

Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself,
From saying something that I should have never thought of you, of you

You're pushing and pulling me down to you
But I don't know what I want
No I don't know what I want

Don't know what I want
But I know it's not you
Keep pushing and pulling me down,
But I know in my heart it's not you

Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself,
From saying something that I should have never thought
Now when I caught myself, I had to stop myself,
From saying something that I should have never thought of you
I knew, I know in my heart it's not you
I knew, but now I know what I want, I want, I want,
Oh no, I should have never thought

    This song is really about edward's point of view, you see, "you're leaving me breathless" that's when edward need not to breath when he's with bella or else he can smell bella's scent and otherwise, he might kill her. Andd, from my reading all the twilight books, it didn't say that bella doesn't like edward, she really likes edward. Edward does not know if he wants bella's body or bella herself, so the song is really from edward's point of view and not bella's.

    I actually have to disagree with claire3000 I do think these are Bella's feelings. Because she always admits things to him, he's got some sort of magic? (he dazzles her) Your leaving me breathless? (Many times in the series she explains how she can't breath after kissing him) Your pushing me and pulling me down to you? (That's her attraction to him) Either way it makes sense. I personally just believe it's from Bella's point of view, because in the book Twilight, there was no makeout scene.

    I 100% agree with Claire3000 again I mean this song is about edward. He can't help himself if he loves Bella no matter how hrad he try's to stay away from Bella! I mean read New Moon definitlyit talks about a lot of stuff about edward leaving Bella and how it was for him. Like in the bedroom seen in twilight the movie (which was totally not in the book!) when they almost did it he couln't help himself because he wanted her so, so, so, badly. Once thet started to role around on the bed he had to catch himself and had to stop himself before he could hurt her because he thirsted for her blood too! Jeese people how hard is that to understand!

    To cullenit;
    Yes I do know what t means. She wrote it because Edward is always like "no afterlife for vampires blah blah blah death blah blah blah hell" but when he comes to talk about Bella he always says something refering to God when she talks about changing.
    P. S.
    So sorry for being mean, I just pisses me off when people just make their own meanings when there not true in the least bit. And also when some stupid people say that this song and Decode were made before Twilight. Sha, whatever, stupid.
