"Learning To Fall" as written by Sam Hollander, Martin Johnson and David Katz....
Today's the day
The worst day of my life
You're content it hurts me
I don't know why

The cost of misery
Is at an all time high
I keep ahead and
Close to the surface in sight

I'm learning to fall
I can't hardly breath
When I'm going down
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't try this at home
You said you don't see
I don't want to know that you know
It should have been me

Could you be with him
Or was it just a lie?
He doesn't catch you like I do
And you don't know why

You change your clothes and your hair
But I can't change your mind
Oh, I'm uninvited
So unrequited now

I'm learning to fall
I can't hardly breath
When I'm going down
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't try this at home
You said you don't see
I don't want to know that you know
It should have been me

Words screaming in my head
Why did you leave?
And I can't stop dreaming
Watching you and him
When it should have been
It should have been me

Today's the day
The worst day of my life

I'm learning to fall
I can't hardly breath
When I'm going down
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't try this at home
You said you don't see
I don't want to know that you know
It should have been me

    General CommentUnrequited is the word that goes in the second area of question marks.

    I'm not sure about the first one, but it almost sounds like "You're sulking till it hurts me".

    General CommentActually, according to plyrics, the 3rd line says:

    "You're so content it hurts me"

    Makes sense.

    General CommentThe second "????" is "unrequited", that means not recipricated. In this case it means unrecipricated love... BTW I looked it up on dictionary.com and thats how I know, just thought you would like to know. I LOVE THESE GUYS!!!!!

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who was just dumped by a girl that meant a lot to him, and I have to assume she started dating someone else. The guy is upset and realizes that he was the right one for her, and not the other guy, but now that she left him, he doesn't wanna know when she realizes he was the right one...hence the line "I don't want to know that you know
    It should have been me."
