"All These Things" as written by and Darren Hanlon....
From every shadow there are things that follow you
From your late night dead end job
From the old neighborhoods where you grew
There's a fallen satellite
(Natalie) That keeps me awake at night
There's a chocolate fondue
(Natalie) With no nutritional value
There's a ground invasion
(Natalie) With complete color coordination
There's a slit on the screen
(Natalie) That is not a trampoline
There's a him with a hand on the heart

And all these things will follow you
And all these things will follow you

Staying locked inside all day is no big deal
But I've yet to read a travel brochure
That could change the way that I feel
It's suffocating in the car
(Natalie) That's just the way some families are
It's a book you'll get around to read
(Natalie) It's a pet that you forgot to feed
It's an ex-boyfriend you can't forget
(Natalie) A godparent you've never met
It's a fear that began
If one single Elvis fan can be wrong
The other 49 odd million screaming others also can

Ah...
And those things will follow you
And those things will follow you
And their lights will shine right through
So when you open up your eyes
They will know you when they do

Did you steal my pen? I left it here
(Natalie) You mean the one behind your ear?
You're just a piece of work, that's all
(Natalie) Take me and hang me on the wall
Away from where the guards linger
(Natalie) You touched the painting with your finger
And I was placed under gallery arrest
(Natalie) It's a chance to wear your Sunday best
And look sharp on the stand
And raise my right shaking hand
And swear everything I say is true
On a first edition copy of Peter Pan

Ah...
And those things will follow you
And those things will follow you
And their lights will shine right through you
So when you open up your eyes
They will know you when they do

And all those things will follow you
And those things will follow you
And their lights will shine right through you
So when you open up your eyes
They will know you when they do

Yeah, when you open up your eyes
They will know you when they do
Yeah, when you open up your eyes everyone will know its you
