"Things" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Things I want to tell you
How you make me feel
How you look to me
And how good it feels
Things I don`t want to tell you
Every little thing`s all right
What I was before
And where I was last night

Always things
All these things
Always things

Things I try to tell you but come out oh so wrong
Seem to feel pretty good, seem to last pretty long
Things I don`t want to tell you
Now there ain't no doubt
You lit a fire in me
Can`t seem to put out

Always things
All these things

Things I long to tell you but I don`t know how
Things I don`t want to tell you but I have to now
Packed my things

Things I`m bound to tell you like that dress looks great on ya
I could use some breathing room but I`m still in love with you
Things I`d never tell you, down the line someday
You`ll be a song I sing, a thing I give away
Pack my things today, I packed my things today

    Song MeaningBasically covers the arc of a relationship. In the end he is basically packing his things and leaving the house. So looks back onto the relationship that has failed and is trying to depersonalise it all to make it tolerable. Calling important just THINGS.

    Part of the reason the relationship also fails is that the guy can't express his feelings. Does not have the ability to be expressive. And just calls all the important stuff THINGS. A reason it all falls apart for him.

    THINGS tend to be something impersonal. Says that I will mine this relationship of ours that fell apart; i will write it into a song, a Thing I give away.
