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

    i agree that i think its about how edward feels in midnight sun when he realises that he luvs bella. I luv this song I like knew all the words after I first listened 2 it and now its always the first song that pops into my head when im listening to paramore... and reading midnight sun... Teehee!

    Am I the only one who doesn't think it's about Twilight? I know it was IN Twilight, but it wasn't made FOR it. I can understand how you might think that, but still. I believe about fighting the temptations of Satan.
    ♪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♪

    It's so plain to see. But that's just what I think. We're all entitled to our own opinion, I suppose.

    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.
