"Learning to Live Again" is the title of a song written by Don Schlitz and Stephanie Davis, and recorded by American country music singer Garth Brooks. It was released in January 1993 as the third single from his album, The Chase and his sixteenth overall. This song peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) chart, and reached number 5 on Canada's RPM country chart. This song is included on The Ultimate Hits collection only.


The song is a ballad, in which the narrator describes feelings of alienation and isolation after a tough breakup and not dating for a while. His friends then set him up on a double date at a little cafe. He feels very out of place but is getting along with his date. She asks him to dance but he's forgotten her name. The chorus describes how learning to live as a single man is killing him. When they are saying goodnight on her porch, he kisses her on the cheek and gets the courage to ask if he can see her again. It is revealed that she is learning to live again also, but he doesn't know it. She says, "We'll See".
