"These Are Things" as written by and Brendan Harney Ricky Brennan....
Leave but come home soon
And can you get me something?
And I don't usually break many promises I make
It's just sometimes I could use a little shove

These are things I did for my love
These are things I did for my love
These are things I

Hey kid you go wrong
More times than you thought you could be
Running on streaks of no money I'll be
Too far to catch you up if you should need

Because your heart's breaking, your mouth's shaking
Your eyes are full and high
For now I've got to look out for me

Wasted....
Hey kid look around
Is your look in the mirror clearer than it used to be?
Still running on streaks of no money no sleep
And no friends to get you off if you should need

Because your heart's breaking your mouth's shaking
Your eyes are full and high
And the handshake was a mistake
When you wished you said goodbye
For now I've got to look out for me

And life sure passes you by
When you're living in living rooms
Maybe you should find a place of your own
Maybe find another place

Because your heart's breaking, your mouth's shaking
Your eyes are full and high
And the handshake was a mistake
And you wished you said goodbye
Lost your last name, missed your last train
And your rides just said goodbye
For now I've got to look out for me

Grown-ups sometimes get their fill of sleeping pills
And end up on the brink after drinking all night
Rental cars and topless bars, sit underneath the radar just a bit
And to make it all right so make it all right
Make it all right it's bearable
So make it all right make it all right it's bearable

These are things I did for my love
These are things I did for my love
These are things I did for my love
These are things I did for my love

    General CommentIt seems to be about young people who seem to be surprised they're getting older as they keep thinking of themselves as young. They are looking at their mistakes as they go off separate ways, but with love. It stops me for a moment as much as the day I heard it, so many years ago.
