From Janis: Jon and I met at the local library, and we clicked right away. He began playing in bands when he was a teenager, and now spends most of his time in his home studio, making music he loves. I pushed and prodded him into this because I thought he’d have a great take on it, even though he kept saying he wasn’t a “professional”. When he argued that he wasn’t a “real singer”, but sounded like Tom Waits, I responded “What on earth is wrong with sounding like Tom Waits?”. Then he finally sent this in. 

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
