"These Things" as written by and Carl William Bell....
I have this smile to hide me
And I have this cross to bear
I have your picture that still haunts me like your memory
These things I have I
I have these words to lie to me
These stupid songs to share
I have these constant hours to fill the void you left me
These things have I
For all those things I've done
Let you down I just apologize

But sorry's hard somehow
Seems so strange it'd be so easy now
But I've got this faith to blind me
And I've got these dreams we shared
And I have the fear that dreams are all ill have that's
Left to me
These things all these things
These things have I
These things all these things
These things have I

    General CommentNah, the things are "this smile," "this cross," etc.

    They're all he has left, yadda yadda yadda.

    General CommentBut I've got this faith to blind me
    And I've got these dreams we shared
    And I have the fear that dreams are all I'll have that's
    left to me

    That line always stuck out to me

    General CommentAnybody who's ever been in a painful breakup can relate to this song. It's very haunting, very beautiful in its own way.

    Seems like he did something he wouldn't apologize for and the girl left him.

    For all those things I've done
    Let you down I apologize
    But sorry's hard somehow
    Seems so strange it'd be so easy now

    Sorry is hard in the moment, and later it's so easy to say it, but it might be too late by then...
