From Janis: Born in the Phillipines, Alfa’s family moved to my home state of New Jersey just before she became a teenager. She fell in love with the guitar shortly after, and as they say, the rest is history!

Better Times Will Come (Janis Ian)
Tagalog (Filipino) adaptation by Alfa

Darating ang magandang bukas
Darating, darating
Ang pighati ay may katapusan
kung ang lahat ay magtutulungan.

It will arrive, a beautiful tomorrow.
It will come, it will come.
All sorrow will end
if all of us will help each other
