May we never ever shed another tear for today, cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days!

 

Los Angeles, United States of America (28 March 2020) – OneRepublic has written and released a song while in COVID-19 quarantine!

‘Better Days’ was written and produced by Ryan Tedder, Brent Kutzle and John Nathaniel and co-produced by Tyler Spry. The song, recorded over the past week, is from their new album, Human.

The song offers some optimism in these dark times.

“We were in the final week of our fifth album deadline when a global pandemic was declared by the WHO. A few of us unknowingly got exposed to somebody with COVID-19 in London and ended up in quarantine in L.A. at my studio for two weeks,” lead singer Ryan Tedder said in a statement.

“With only two songs left to finish, one of them happened to be ‘Better Days.’ We write about real experiences and events that happen to us — this is what happens when you write a song during a crisis.”

Listen to the song here:

Lyrics:

Oh, I know that they’ll be better days
Oh, that sunshine bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
‘Cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days

Waking up in California
But these clouds they won’t go away
Every day is like another storm, yeah
I’m just trying not to go insane
Yeah, in the city shining so bright
So many dark nights, so many dark days
But every time I feel the paranoia
I close my eyes and I pray

Oh, I know that they’ll be better days
Oh, that sunshine bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
‘Cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days

Been waking up to a new year
Got the past a million miles away
I’m waking up with a new fear
But I know it’ll wash away
Whatever you do don’t worry bout me
I’m thinking bout you, don’t worry bout us
‘Cause in the morning everything can change, yeah
And time will tell you it does

Oh, I know that they’ll be better days
Oh, that sunshine bout to come my way
May we never ever shed another tear for today
‘Cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days

Better days
Better days
Better days
Better days

May we never ever shed another tear for today
‘Cause oh, I know that they’ll be better days
