"Hannah" as written by and Nicholls....
Hannah's friends were watching
When she met him at the end of the bar
Hannah's friends were thinking
That he wouldn't even make it that far

"This is for you", he said
Her gaze unbroken as she licked her spoon
He put his hand in his pocket and pulled out the moon
He gave it to her

Her breathing stumbled and her eyes became wide
And as she swallowed cream
She could already feel him inside
She'd seen similar before

A book, a ring, a key, and more
But never as clever and as clean and as pure
And he said, "You're the one

You're the only one I've been waiting for"
So she took his eyes and trusted
And they slipped through the door

Texas girl in New York, don't call her naive
Though she's seen it before, she just risks to believe
She still has the faith in her battered ideals and she

She still holds the courage to scale her fears
Well, spontaneous love has crossed everyone's mind
Most lose hope when that's not what we find

I saw her in the morning and she was crying in the park
She said his girlfriend came home and screamed through the dark
She said that she called her a whore and then she spat in her face
So, Hannah had left in silent disgrace

And then she turned to be, she said, "Now what do I do?"
And I witnessed her shame, how it was mine too
And now she even calls him from Texas, she gets his machine
He made her question herself, her worth, her esteem

So, don't say she's the one and then forget
Don't hand her the moon and then charge interest on debt now
Don't give her your lines 'cause your mask may be flawless
But you're full of shit and your campaign is coreless

And the moon won't do if it's just a snapshot
And hell neither will you if that's all that you got now
Neither will you if that's all that you got now
Neither will you if that's all that you got now
Neither will you if that's all that you got

Texas girl in New York, don't call her naive
Though she's seen it all before, she just risks to believe
Well, she still has the faith in her battered ideals and she

She still has the courage to scale her fears
Spontaneous love has crossed everyone's mind
Most lose hope when that's not what we find

    General Commentthis song is really sad. its about a girl falling for a guy that tells her a bunch of crap so he can have sex with her. His girlfriend comes home and finds her. So he forgets about her, but she doesnt forget about him....and she still calls for him and what not.
