"Better Days" as written by Kyu Wan Kim, Jae Yeon Choi, Sung Un Cha, Dae Ryong Kim, Ji Min Lee, Jung Yoo Kim and Ji Bo Kyung....
The darkness has always been,
The world was born into a blanket of sin,
When all the faith's been gone,
Still we found a reason to carry on,

[Chorus]
Through the worry, worry, worry,
Caught in an endless maze
Oh when the lights go out,
All I can think about,
Is how, we've seen better days

Oh lover lately I've been thinkin' I might leave you,
As you're surrounded by these fools who do deceive you,
Yes our past is wretched true,
But I'm still in love with you,
Thats why I am still refusin' to give in to

[Chorus]

Where do we go from here,
While we're all so consumed by fear,
Why I'm trying not to be suspicious of those I'm suspicious of,
I'm tryin' to crack-open this angry heart and find a little love,

[Chorus]

Oh when the lights go out,
All I can dream about,
Is how, we've seen better days

    Song FactYes on the surface the song appears to be a song about self discovery on a man's journey through love relations. But an experience listener knows that Better Days actually chronicals the relationship between Jim and Tammy Faye Baker in their hey day. The ups and downs, the depression and the soulful commitment despite the changes in physical appearance and corrupted, inner countenances, mistakes made requiring deception, depraved cravings toward unlawful activities, unrestrained drives for power and greed, vibrate through every chord.

    Tammy Faye filed for divorce from prison, but before the papers where signed, their turmultuous love affair, held our hearts aghast as they weathered every storm.

    The song is a duet of Jim and Tammy singing their truth.

    "When the lights go out, all I can think about is how we've seen better days." Neither Tammy or Jim could ever really let the lights go out - because the thought of better days was too much weight. Tammy televised the last days of her life, while Jim currently televises the end of days.

    The depths of Tammy & Jim's discomfort threatens them throughout the ministerial couple's relationship. The songwriter parades his ability to observe the world, conjure the past and impact the future in 3 verses. A credit to his tradition, Lee reminds us where we've been and unveils the unspoken and unseen.

    General CommentThis is song about a couple who has been married a long time.
    Contemplating cheating and finding solid reasons to back it up.

    Married life looks pretty grim in verse 1.

    The darkness has always been,
    The world was born into a blanket of sin,
    When all the faith's been gone,
    Still we found a reason to carry on,


    In the 1st chorus, married life has a lot of worry, and they are "caught" trapped going round and round - no fun. At bedtime they think about the couple they were when they were younger, and they can carry on.

    Song FactYes on the surface the song appears to be a song about self discovery on a man's journey through love relations. But with experience, a listener begins to hear the song between the words. The ups and downs, the depression and the soulful commitment despite the changes in physical appearance and corrupted, inner countenances, mistakes made requiring deception, depraved cravings toward unlawful activities, unrestrained drives for power and greed
