"Spotlight (Twilight Mix)" as written by Paul Meany and Dennis Craig Herring....
Ah, aah, ah, aah

You got a whole lot left to say now
You knocked all your wind out
You just tried too hard and you froze
I know, I know

What do you say?
What do you say?

Just take the fall, you're one of us
The spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah
Oh the spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah

You know the one thing you're fighting to hold
Will be the one thing you've got to let go
And when you feel the wall cannot be burned
You're gonna die to try what can't be done
Gonna stay stay out but you don't care
Now is there nothing like the inside of you anywhere

Oh, just take the fall, you're one of us
The spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah
Oh the spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah
Yeah, it's on

Because everyone would rather watch you fall
(All in trouble)
And we all are, yeah
(All and each other)
And we all are, yeah
(All and each other)

Just take a fall, you're one of us
The spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah
Oh, the spotlight is on
(Just take the fall)

Now you're one of us
Now you're
(Oh)
Now you're
(Oh)
Now you're
(Oh)

Now you're one of us
Now you're
(Oh)
Now you're
(Oh)
Now you're one of us

Oh, the spotlight is on
Ah, aah, ah, aah

    General CommentI think it's freakin' hilarious that all of the twilight girls in here are saying "I think this song was written about Bella/Edward/Twilight/etc."

    The song wasn't written for your movie. It was just added on the soundtrack. Think about something other than your stupid book, would you?

    General Commentwhen it says:

    You know the one thing you're fighting to hold
    Will be the one thing you've got to let go
    And when you feel the wall cannot be burned
    You're gonna die to try what can't be done

    it sounds to me like it actually says:

    You know the one thing you're fighting to hold
    Will be the one thing you've got to let go
    And when you feel the war cannot be won
    You're gonna die to try what can't be done

    i definitely think it says that, but that's just what i hear :)

    General CommentHahahhahahhahha transformers. But oh my god I love this song. It's addicting.
    I just keep picturing the part in Twilight where they get out of the car and Edward looks amazing.
    But it makes sense, it's like once she's (more or less) accepted into his family, that it means she has to play the part now.
    Go along with whatever is in store for her and take the obstacles that come with loving him.

    General Commenti love mutemath even before this song!!! they are just flippin awesome and this song is amazing.i love listening to it!!! i agree with maenberlin it is crazy. once when i was at a friends house. now before i heard it completely and Knew it was on the twilight soundtrack my friend was listening to it on her ipod. she said it was on the twilight album and i was all " oh really, i didn't know that". i told her i'd never heard all of it and she was all u gotta listen to it. so she handed me her ipod that was on "FULL BLAST"( didn't know that btw) and when it started my ears nearly exploded!!! now i like listening to music loud anyway, like on my Ipod and stuff but i had no heads up it was that crazy. after it finshed my friends all, so what'd you think. I said, " wow, well i was not expecting that, that was insane.
    ( but i guess i should have known, it is mutemath, and their songs are insane.lol.

    General CommentThis song doesn't remind me of Twilight really because I try to not be reminded of it.

    Anyways it reminds me of the Lost Boys. As the part "Just take a fall,you're one of us". It makes me think of the scene where all the vamps are hanging off the train tracks and David is yelling to Michael "Let go, you're one of us!"

    General CommentI agree with hrom up there, not a twilight fan...

    but I think the song is a good one.

    Don't have much to say on it though since I didn't bother to watch the movie
    but it seems to relate to having attention brought on to you and having the
    pressure of failing due to that attention. Not too sure though...

    General Commentlol i love that you referenced switchfoot.

    has anyone heard the song "crawling towards the sun" by the hush sound? It makes me think of twilights cuz it reminds me of vampires who are trying to be good.

    Outside of twilight, i think this song is taking about someone who is trying to do the right thing but fells like it will be easer to fail or to just be like eveyone else. it says "everyone would rather watch you fall, cause were all in trouble, just take a fall, your one of us now" At first i didn't like this song because i thought it had a negative message but its such a good song and its so REAL because i think eveyone fells like this sometime in there life so you cant not like this song. thats what i get from it anyway.
