There are things in the way of the things that we say
And I’m not sure what to do
Cause the things that clutter up our view
Are surrounding me and you

There are things all around, making noise, making sound
And they’re drowning out the song
Till the melody and chords feel wrong
And it’s hard to sing along

Oh…

There are things out of place taking room, taking space
And I’m not sure how to deal
Cause the things that have the most appeal
Tend to keep us from the real

There are things we can’t see weighing down you and me
Some are yours and some are mine
Maybe all those things we can’t define
Disappear when we combine

Oh…

After all the words are spoken
After all the things are broken
We just make it up as we go

Every thing that we earn, that we share, that we learn
Some will fade and some will stay
Some will lead us to a better day
When we put the things away
