about

When you undertake major alteration or necessary renovation works in a home, there is often destruction and mess; living through the process isn’t easy. The same can be true of our friendships and relationships. But after the hard work is done, things are repaired, the mess is cleared away. It’s time for making good.

lyrics

Well we made some alterations
Tore down some walls
And here we sit in dust and mess
It hasn't been easy and we're far from done
We couldn't settle for less

Well we made some decisions
And they can't be undone
Hoping they're for the best
Cos I can't see the end now
And I can't see the start
It'll all be worth it I guess

Now the time has come for making good
To paint the new plaster
And sand the rough wood
I know that you're weary but we both know we should
The time has come for making good.

When we stripped back the paper and saw all the cracks.
We knew we had some work to do.
But sometimes you gotta tear things right back
So the old can make way for the new.

And when you're rebuilding, "one brick at a time"
Seems to me the only way
And not much worth doing was done overnight
Rome wasn't built in a day.
