You'll get hooked, you'll get drugged 
She'll be your essence she'll be your blood 
And you'll want her so much but you'll never get enough 
And that's the first rule of love 

She'll smell so sweetly in the morning 
She'll make you feel so good inside 
And you'll want her so much you'll give everything else up 
And that's the first rule of love 

You'll grow comfortable together 
You'll start to fit like hand and glove 
And then you'll start to hate the men she used to dream of 
And that's the first rule of love 

You'll miss her madly, when you're apart 
Love is like gravity holding down your heart 

You'll grow envious and bitter 
She'll be enquiring and concerned 
And you'll feel so close to her but never close enough 
To get past the first rule of love 
And with the awkwardness of strangers 
You will finally give up 
No exceptions to the first rule of love
