"Make It Up" as written by and Benjamin Kweller....
I need a new direction to get me around
You don't have protection as you're coming down

Light my white candle, keep me safe
It'll put that smile back on my face, ya

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?

I still think we should meditate

I need a good luck charm to give me good luck
I need a good alarm to wake me up

Light my white candle, keep me safe
It'll put that smile back on my face, ya

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?

You don't tell me about what's going on
Fucking make up your mind, stop dragging it on
They're only words, they don't hurt

We can't even look into our eyes
We're not the same inside
We can let it change, our lives can braid
We're constantly afraid

We can't even look into our eyes
We're not the same inside
Go sing your songs, try something new
I hope you find what's right for you
Have you made it up? Have you made it?

Have you made up your mind?
It's the only way
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?
I admire the time that you take
Have you made it up? Have you made it up?

I still think we should meditate

    General CommentI love Ben Kweller! All his lyrics are totally personal, and easy to relate to. I understand this song, because he wants to be with someone...and they arent sure if they want to be with him and his whole life is waiting on that one decision....Aw I love you ben!

    General CommentA couple months ago I bought Sha-Sha for a cheap price with low expectations, considering all the hype. As soon as I started listening to it, I thought he was just awesome. Make It Up is one of my favorite songs, as it reminds me of one too many of my past relationships.

    General CommentI think the one mentioning Obe-Wan and Yoda is the Radish version (BK's old band)
