From Al Van Der Beek, producer of the piano guys, and vocals on 'Better Days':
"This song came to me as an answer to a prayer. A few months ago my family and I were going through some very emotional trials and even though I knew they would eventually pass it was difficult for me to see beyond our current circumstances. One morning as I was sitting in the studio feeling the weight of everything that was going on I felt prompted to get on my knees and pray. I didn’t want to pray, but the feeling that I should pray was very insistent. After several strong impressions, that I tried my best to ignore, the following quote came to mind: “If you don't feel like praying, pray until you do!”. I definitely didn’t feel like praying but I reluctantly gave in and got on my knees and started to pray out loud. I started to pour out all the desires and emotions of my heart to God. I didn’t ask Him to take away my trials, but I pleaded with Him to reassure me in that very moment that I would see things as He sees them and that I could have sufficient faith and trust that we would get through this as a family. After my prayer I sat there in tears..waiting..listening.. pondering and feeling overwhelmed with gratitude and love. "
