From Janis: SAK & REIKO are vocalist SAK, and Reiko Miyake, who plays the classical Koto, 17Gen. This video was done by Kazunori Miyake, who also played the other instrument. Outside of her wonderful vocal, and the interesting juxtaposition of the Eastern Koto and lyric with a Western melody and piano, this is a beautifully sensitive portrayal of my song - thank you all!

Better Times Will Come
Japanese lyric adaptation: Takahiro Maeda, executive producer, Japan
作詞・作曲 Janis Ian  日本語詞 前田たかひろ 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう  

きっと試されている 愛は幻想だろう?と
だったら今証明しよう 愛は幻想じゃない 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう  

きっと試されている 船出の覚悟を
だったら見せよう証明しよう 嵐も越えよう

Better times, better times will come
今こそ 学ぶとき
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう 

Better times, better times will come
その日は 必ず来る
みんなでまるい地球と言う船漕いで行こう 
Oh Better times will come
