From Janis: Shirley is a keyboard player and composer whose specialty is soothing the troubled heart. She provides a great deal of free music through her website, and we’ve been corresponding for years. This take pays homage to my piano introduction on “Days Like These” (from the album god & the fbi), then takes it into the newer song. Nice idea, since “Days Like These” is also a song about getting through hard times.

(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
