lyrics

make a little, make a lot
this room was made for two
to choose and dream and build
whatever we want to

I'm making a little box
for all our little things
and you are smashing blocks together
for our fancy red porch swing

oh we pulled this from the ground
and it'll break a time or two
the knobs and screws will get kinda loose
and the wood grows old with you
but we won't stop fixing what's ours
'cause we built this with our hands

the parts spread like a wing
and we let the memory fly
we'll take the old, and we'll take the new
we'll take your two-year tablet too

and they might say that we're crazy
for keeping what they think is lost
but the art has meaning well past then
and finds the color when it fades again

oh we pulled this from the ground
and it'll break a time or two
the hem will frail, then there's the nail
but we'll bring it light till its fine to use
but we won't stop fixing what's ours
'cause we built this with our hands

oh we pulled this from the ground
and it'll break a time or two
the shelves will crack, its charm will stray
but I'm glad for what it gives us too
but we won't stop fixing what's ours
'cause we built this
oh we built this
oh we built this with our hands
