"101" as written by Emeli Sande and Alicia J Augello-cook....
You used to the sound of a heart that's breaking
I know it don't phase you anymore
You're the king of the game that you're playing
I know you've played it a hundred times before

You fill your bedroom up with trophies
Then you get a kick out of closing the door
Got all the words to keep on hoping
I know you've said them a hundred times before

Then there's me, all false for your gold
Then there's me, just love me for fun
Then there's me, no use in pretending
Oh there's me, a 101

I might as well stand in front of a bullet
Close my eyes and kick the chair to the floor
It's like a speeding train that is coming
I know you've crashed it 100 times before

Then there's me, all false for your gold
Then there's me, just love me for fun
Uh there's me, no, no use in pretending
Oh there's me, a 101

Everybody says I gotta be crazy
That I deserve everything that I get
But I got a feeling
That makes me wanna ignore all that you've done a 100 times before

'Cause then there's me, could I be the one
And baby there's me, to make you undone
Uh darling there's me, no use, no use in pretending
Oh there's me, a 101
Me, 101
So I gotta be, I gotta be, I gotta be a 101
Maybe it's time, maybe it's me
Maybe I could be, maybe pretend
I gotta be, I gotta be 101
Yeah baby

    General CommentThis song really spoke to me, having been involved with a serial womanizer :) I think the meaning is fairly obvious. You always hope that you're the one he will realize is the one he's been waiting for and change his ways to be with only you...
