I Caught Myself Lyrics

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...

    It's a song for Jacob. "But I know in my heart it's not you" She's resisting the temptation of falling in love with him after Edward left her.

    It's about liking someone you aren't supposed to like for different reasons: he/she is bad for you, he/she is in a relationship, you are in a relationship... etc.

    This is Twilight from Edwards point of view (I checked, plus if you know the story its kind of obvious). If you've read midnight sun (unpublished version of twilight from Edwards POV, which you can download for free) you will know that Alice tells him he will love Bella and, though he's come to realize it himself by then, he tries to refuse loving her.

    My interpretation, considering it's what i'm going through right now.. is an inside fight between the herself, the devil,. "You're pushing and pulling me down, to you.. but I don't know what I want." "You got it, you got it, soe 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." The devil tempts, with beautiful and amazing things that you THINK are amazing. But, he's really just pulling you down. At the end, when she said "Now I know what I want".. I take it as she's gotten right with God.

    But I don't know what I (its about a guy who is BAD...this guy is mean and vile...but he loves this girl (the person singing the song) (she strangely likes him)

    Now when I caught myself
    I had to stop myself
    From saying something that
    I should have never thought (she is about to tell him that she likes him.but knows that he is bad and she backs away from saying it)

    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
    When God is my witness (this guy leaves her with WOW feeling but she hates it. when she says "your not the one I believe in" she's saying that she believes the rumours people are telling her)

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

    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
    When I know in my heart it's not you

    So if anyone has ever seen Twilight, they'd know what this song is for, but for those of you who don't I'll break it down.

    Down to you
    You're pushing and pulling me
    Down to you
    But I don't know what I
    (that he's kinda saying date me don't date me)

    Now when I caught myself
    I had to stop myself
    I'm saying something that
    I should have never thought
    (shes falling in love with him and she never thought she would and that she has to stop)

    Now when I caught myself
    I had to stop myself
    I'm saying something that
    I should have never thought
    (same)

    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
    (hes confusing her and she doesn't know what to do )

    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
    As God is my witness
    (hes attractive to her and that she doesn't want to like him but she just does)

    Now when I caught myself
    I had to stop myself
    I'm saying something that
    I should have never thought (x2)
    (same)

    Don't know what I want
    But I know it's not you
    Keep pushing and pulling me down
    When I know in my heart it's not you
    (shes doesn't know what she wants (no duh) and that he's still confusing her but she knows its not him.)

    Now when I caught myself
    I had to stop myself
    I'm saying something that
    I should have never thought (x2)

    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
    (She knows its not him but at the same time she wants it to be him and she should've never thought of it at all.)

    Disclaimer- I hate Twilight, and I know its obivious, but some people asked and this is why its here. And Twilight is twilight, paramore is paramore.
