What is Love? (Part 1)

I think we all agree when we say love is conditional. but what makes us love someone? Do we love them for thier looks? for their ideas? love them in some more spiritual longing sense? Just how can a person complete you? Do you have to agree on every little thing in order to love that person? Can you not agree on hardle a thing, yet still feel compelled to live out your life with that one person? We've all heard that "opposites attract", hell it was a Paula Abdul song in the 80's, but how far along the line does opposites attract? does the song give us hope that you won't find someone who agrees with you on everythign? Is it a "take what you can get" sort of conotation? Ahh, i'm going insane trying to figure this out...ok so i asked a bunch of questions, i am in desperate need of all your input. in the mean time here's that song,just for you.......


Opposites Attract
(Oliver Leiber)

Baby seems we never ever agree
You like the movies
And I like T.V.
I take thing serious
And you take 'em light
I go to bed early
And I party all night
Our friends are sayin'
We ain't gonna last
Cuz I move slowly
And baby I'm fast
I like it quiet
And I love to shout
But when we get together
It just all works out


I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it ain't fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract


Who'd a thought we could be lovers
She makes the bed
And he steals the covers
She likes it neat
And he makes a mess
I take it easy
Baby I get obsessed
She's got the money
And he's always broke
I don't like cigarettes
And I like to smoke
Things in common
There just ain't a one
But when we get together
We have nothin' but fun


I take--2 steps forward
I take--2 steps back
We come together
Cuz opposites attract
And you know--it ain't fiction
Just a natural fact
We come together
Cuz opposites attract


Repeat Chorus

Baby ain't it somethin'
How we lasted this long
You and me
Provin' everyone wrong
Don't think we'll ever
Get our differences patched
Don't really matter
Cuz we're perfectly matched


Repeat chorus twice

Raps:
I'm M.C. Kat on the rap so mic it
Here's a little story and you're sure to like it
Swift and sly and I'm playing it cool
With my homegirl, Paula Abdul


Nothing in common but this trust
I'm like a minus, she's like a plus
One going up, one coming down
But we seem to land on common ground
When things go wrong we make corrections
To keep things moving in the right direction
Try to fight it but I'm telling you Jack
It's useless, Opposites Attract
