Sew my soul into my skin
Hurts like hell 'til grace sinks in
Mending rips that pulled apart
Take a deep breath and make a new start
Finding threads that I'd mislaid
Making, making, someday made

Heart unraveled, mind unwound
Limbs unhinged, footing unsound
Lost myself in a deep dark haze
A labyrinth of black and grey
Scratched by brambles where I strayed
Making, making, someday made

Making, making someday made
Sweet and sour, sun and shade
Round and round in serenade
Making, making, someday made

Distance in the rearview mirror
A different road approaching nearer
Can't go back to change the past
Nothing good becomes of that
Old wounds recede, memories fade
Making, making, someday made

Making, making someday made
Sweet and sour; sun and shade
Round and round in serenade
Making, making, someday made

Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring
Each season brings its offering
Slumbering beneath the snow
Flowers planted in a row
Not forgotten, just delayed
Making, making, someday made

Making, making someday made
Sweet and sour, sun and shade
Round and round in serenade
Making, making, someday made

Making, making, someday made,
Banat, Banat, Ban Jai*

*Sanskrit (Bengali) translation of "making, making, someday made."
