"made" or "done" ?

Postby BadDisciple » Sun Aug 04, 2013 10:52 am

Hail all,
Not being a native English speaker, I'm writing some lyrics for a song and I'm stuck with a line where I need to use the word 'sacrifices' and for rhyming purposes I prefer use it with 'done'.
But I checked around and it seems that one should say "sacrifices made" and not "sacrifices done" as the second would mean sacrifices done in some occult circles or so. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

What's the whole line? Maybe you can change the first part to rhyme with made (payed, prayed, weighed, trade, bade, stayed, aid, played, evade, tirade...)

"Sacrifices made" is better. It is always correct.
