From Janis: Léon originally sent me a version using my vocal, but being a little familiar with his history as an artist, I urged him to re-do the song with himself singing. Like most artists, he’s as humble as he is talented, and it took a little convincing. I’m very happy he let me pester him into singing this himself – and note that his interview here is really worth a read. 

(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
