You're a morning kind of person
Everything is spic and span
I could live with all the clutter
Stay so late at night I can
I would often think it out loud
Say whatever's on my mind
You would rather keep your mouth shut
Leave the details all behind

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

You would rather choose to follow
I would rather lead the play
I would do it all tomorrow
You would do it all today
I just want the nitty-gritty
You would rather summarize
Every detail of the story
That you never emphasize

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

You take me just as I am
No more, no less, just as I am, oh yeah

I wanna go right, you'd rather go left
I wanna go fight, you'd rather be quiet
I wanna be right, you'd rather be wrong
I wanna be weak, you'd rather be strong
Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

Movin' along, singin' our song
Opposites do attract
Needing each other, always together
Opposites do attract

    I want to go right, you'd rather go left.
    I want to go fight, you'd rather be quiet.
    I want to be right, you'd rather be wrong.
    I want to be weak, you'd rather be strong.

    Nothing can stop love even if you, both lovers, are very opposite to each other but still, you atract to each other, understand each other and love each other.

    Well... I guess that's how we find love at it's best; knowing that there's some things that are different out of the dispossession of the person yet, you can't still withstand that person because that's just out of the ordinary.

    The darkness in me has fallen in love with the light in you... The night in me has fallen in love with the day in you. The deep sea in me has fallen in love with the full moon in you. I am turning always toward your radiance, wave after wave of love. :)

    It's quite obvious... Sometimes even people who have opposites temperaments or ways of doing things can still make their relationship work if they are willing to look beyond the differences and focus instead on the love they share... Sometimes, we tend to highlight our differences so much we fail to see we share a common thread afterall.
