Have You Heard Justin Timberlake’s New Song ft. Kirk Franklin?

“Better Days” is a hope filled song that encourages you to hold on no matter what you’re experiencing or going through.

Ant Clemons and Justin Timberlake wrote this inspiring song a few months ago, Timberlake said in a tweet, sharing behind-the-scenes footage from their time in the recording studio.

“This song was our way of doing what little we could to encourage everyone to stay hopeful and to keep working towards a better future,” he said.

The song was recently released to streaming services featuring Christian artist, Kirk Franklin and recently topped the record for most-Shazamed song in a single day in the United States with over 90,000 Shazams in 24 hours.

Lyrics:

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
Keep your eyes on the road ahead
But if you’re feeling lost in the night
It’s okay to cry
Just as long as you hold your head
 
‘Cause we’re on our way to better
Better’s ahead, better’s ahead
It get’s worse ‘fore it gets better
But better’s ahead, better’s ahead
Better days are comin’ (better and better and better, ooh-ooh)
Better days are comin’ (ooh-ooh, better days)
Better days, better days (better and better and better, oh-ooh)
Better days are comin’ (better days, better days)
 
I know you’ve been kicked down
Slept on, let down, faith gone
Waited for too long for somethin’ to lean on (lean on)
You feel weak, just be strong (ooh)
Deep breath, stay calm
If you just press on, press on, press on
 
You gon’ see there’s a light at the end of the tunnel (at the end of the tunnel)
Keep your eyes on the road ahead (on the road ahead)
And if you’re feelin’ lost in the night (lost in the night)
It’s okay to cry (it’s okay to cry)
Just as long as you hold your head
 
‘Cause we’re on our way to better (ah)
Better’s ahead (better), better’s ahead (ah)
It get’s worse ‘fore it gets better (ah-ah-ah)
But better’s ahead, better’s ahead
Better days are comin’ (better and better and better, ooh-ooh, I know, I know)
Better days are comin’ (ooh-ooh)
(Better days, better days, better and better and better, ooh-ooh)
And better days are comin’ (ooh-ooh)
(Better days, better days)
 
I know you feel left out and stepped on
Keep goin’, keep goin’
Shine bright, don’t dim yours for no one
Keep goin’ higher, and higher and higher and higher
 
Better days, better days are comin’ (better days)
Better days, better days (on their way) are comin’ (’cause I know)
Better days, better days (better days) are comin’ (yeah)
Better days (comin’), better days (I know)
Better days are comin’
