"The First Rule of Love" as written by and Justin Currie....
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

    MemoryI disagree - I think this is the rules of love for someone who is bad at love! It reminds me of my ex who was seriously paranoid and jealous about everything, even ex-boyfriends who were seriously in the past. In fact it reminded me of him when I first heard the song, right at the start of the relationship, because I remember thinking "Oh I hope this song is not true - I am sure we can get past the first rule of love" - nope! So the lesson to anyone who can identify with this song is... don't hold on too tightly to someone. And don't let your entire happiness depend on that one person, live your own life as well as being in a relationship. And don't be jealous of exes, that is just creepy, lol.
