"I Love The Unknown" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
She asked him
"Why can we not be together?
Why is it we have to part?
Why did you leave with a stranger
When I am revealing my heart?"

Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown

They asked him
"Hey, where's this bus going?"
And he said, "well, I'm really not sure"
"Well then how will you know where to get off?"
And he said, "the place with the most allure"

Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
Because I love the unknown
'Cause I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown

And then his father got him a job
And it paid well
But every day it felt the same
Well, his father was really heartbroken
When he quit and changed his last name

Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown (hey)

The doctor asked him what he was afraid of
Just what was he running from?
And he said, "it's not a fear of success, nor of closeness
But of going through life feeling numb"

That's why I love the unknown
Love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
That's why I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown
Because I love the unknown
I love the unknown
He said he loves the unknown

    General CommentWell I think it was made for Rocket Science I'm not 100% but I think it was. It's a great song. I'm gonna take a few guesses at it though. In the movie hes just walking around an unknown part of town to him and this is playing, so maybe just being out where it's unknown. I love doing stuff like that too =). It could also be about his life, he's hating it, so he's going to the unknown, not to escape, but so he isn't aware or known of his surroundings. Anybody agree?

    General Commentthis is definately in Rocket Science. it's an amazing song. I feel it's just about a guy that likes adventure and hates staying in the same place.
    maybe bc he's afraid to settle down, or maybe he just wants to live life to it's fullest by always discovering new things/places. :)

    General CommentI have this song on repeat right now =]

    I think it's just about never questioning the amazingness of life, let it go as it will, and take any opportunities you get.

    General CommentBasically, Hal (the main character) lost at love and the debate, and his last lines were something like, "Love shouldn't be rocket science." In other words, the ending was that in life, it's the little victories that count, (Hal managed to overcome his stuttering) and that you will lose at times.

    Or something like that, I'm talking out of memory here. :D
