"Things Are What You Make Of Them" as written by Justin Rice and Christian Rudder....
I'm spending my
I'm spending my days
I'm spending my
I'm spending my days

I'm spending my days
My day-mons yeah
They're taking up inside of my heart
They were trying to keep me entertained
But they were tearing me apart

Well my memory she was packing yeah
And I knew that she would never come back
She handed me a letter and then
Then she vanished in the black

And the letter said
(Things are what you make of them
Things are what you make of them
Let it be
And you know what I mean
Yeah you know what I mean
Things are what you make of them
Things are what you make of them
Let it be
And you know what I mean
Yeah you know what I mean)

Well I met up with my common sense
And I knew it by the way she stared
She said if you don't make a noise
I will never know your there

Ao I purchased me a ticket yeah
For a meeting with Jesus Christ
He shook my hand and offered me
Just this thimble of advice

He was telling me

Hello he-he-hello
Hey come on
Hello he-he-hello
Hey come on

Things are what you make of them
Things are what you make of them
Let be
Things are what you make of them
Things are what you make of them
Let be
Things are what you make of them
Things are what you make of them
You know what I mean
Yeah you know what I mean

    MemoryI was supposed to spend my winter in sudan, and my visa wasn't processed in time. So I spent two weeks in a both physically and metaphorically icy Kansas City. this song was my story..

    "My memory, she was packing" - saying goodbye to the rest of my team as they drove away to the airport

    "My common sense" - A dear friend that I wasn't going to get to see, that I got to spend an evening with and who gave me advice and encouragement

    "A meeting with Jesus Christ" - I went to the Cayman Islands on the last week of my break. I expected god to explain some grand reasoning behind what had just happened. I put my iPod on shuffle with the songs one of my friends had loaded onto it for me to listen to, and this wonderful song came up.

    .... And that was how I became a Bishop Allen fan.
