Make Amends

Story Behind The Song

Observing two people angry at each other and noticing that the offense itself was really rather slight, and that "sh*t happens" but what's really key is that people care enough to take responsibility & make the effort to heal the rift.

Song Description

An appeal to correct a mistake that you may have made which inadvertently hurt someone. There is an inference that if you are trying to be someone you're not ("happens when you play someone else's song") it screws up a relationship. But that you can recover with a genuine apology & making amends.

Well, you made a mistake
In a little heart you made a little break
But sure as words are real
Real love can make a hurting heart heal

You can make amends
Go and make amends

You got the tune all wrong
Happens when you play someone else's song
But if your aim is true
Then saying "I'm sorry" brings the life back to you

You can make amends
So go and make amends

(instrumental break)

Do it in a call or a letter
But whatever you do just try and make it better

You can make amends
So go and make amends
(make amends choir)
