Because We Click

You like country – I like rock

You like sweets – I prefer salty snacks

You like to gamble – I play it safe

No matter how our lives differ

Our love is a perfect match

Two who care for one another

With all our hearts and souls

After all they do say

That opposites attract

Opposites Attract

Black and white
Hot and cold
You and me…
We were in love
But with such different ways
Of showing how we cared
And I began to wonder
If you really even felt anything
But you were just so different
Quiet and reserved
While I was more about the touch
Closeness was my need
So we had to fight to stay together
And today we are still going strong
We just needed a little understanding
And a willingness to live in contrast
