The lyrics, which are sprinkled over a simple acoustic guitar and evocative synth arrangement, talk about "When life is good again / I'll be a better friend / A bigger person / More thoughtful than I've been / I'll be so different then / More in the moment when / Life is good again." The 74-year-old singer also perfectly summed up the thoughts of the nation when she declared, "We've been brought to our knees / We've been so ill-at-ease / There are no guarantees / But you know life goes on." She also went on to say, "This too shall pass away / Bring new and different days / We need to change our ways / And right our wrongs."
