“I do believe with all of my heart that life will be good again,” she added in a follow up post on Friday.  “Listen to my brand new song #WhenLifeIsGoodAgain now at the link in my bio.”

In the song, the “Jolene” hitmaker reminisces about how she will be a “better friend” and “bigger person” when “life is good again,” as Fox News noted.

“When life is good again / I’ll be a better friend / A bigger person when / Life is good again / More thoughtful than I’ve been / I’ll be so different then / More in the moment when / Life is good again,” Parton sang.

“I’ll open up my heart / And let the whole world in / I’ll try to make amends / When life is good again,” she added.

In the clip, we also see a montage of police officers, doctors, various healthcare workers and just everyday people during the pandemic donning face masks.

At the end of the video all those wearing face masks strip them off, a symbol that this time will come to an end.
