From Janis: A colleague let Niall know about my project, and he jumped in with both feet – and seven pairs of hands! Watch as two Nialls begin the song, while the rest of the Nialls patiently wait for their entrance cues. I especially like the way Niall-on-dobro grooves along to the music, while Niall-hand-clapper occasionally sings along under his breath. All said, a real tour-de-force from a new friend in Ireland – thank you Niall!

(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
