"Hannah" as written by and Judah Dadone....
Do me this solid
If you would pretty lady
Please grab me a martini
And meet me on the balcony
I've prepared a light show
You could fake a melody
We could argue over where and when
The cymbal hits should be

Hannah takes the stairs
And I usually take the elevator
Every now and then she offers me
A lemon Now and Later
Please don't play the match maker
Please don't be a player hater
If you dig her recent work
You should go congratulate her

And if you're partial to the night sky
If you're vaguely attracted to rooftops
Hannah takes the stairs
Cause she can't tell that
Its a winding spiral case
Is she right side up
Or upside-down?

So Hannah let your roots grow
Let your blue legs show
If I need to take a breath
Then you can take a trumpet solo
I'll work on the limbs if
You work on the torso
If it gets to be too much then
You can lend a helping hand

And if you're partial to the night sky
If you're vaguely attracted to rooftops
Hannah takes the stairs
Cause she can't tell that
Its a winding spiral case
Is she right side up
Or upside-down?

Hannah takes the stairs
Cause she can't tell that
Its a winding spiral case
Is she outside-in
Or inside out?

    General CommentAcctually I am glad they haven't been discovered.
    It isn't that they don't deserve it; it is just people now-a-day ruin
    music for others. They obssese to much or brag about it then the artist
    falls into the hands of the wrong people.

    My OpinionI just love this song. It's one of my favorites from the CD.

    And I too am totally surprised that they haven't gotten noticed yet!

    General Commentjust got done watching the movie Hannah Takes the Stairs. I've been watching a lot of mumblecore pictures lately and I saw this title when searching around on Netflix and rented it just because of this song. It is clearly related; the name is too much too be a coincidence and the "trumpet solo" line pushes any chance of coincidence away.

    so if you want to understand this hannah character, you need to watch the movie. if you don't care to get that in depth, that's cool but it's an interesting movie anyways.

    General CommentAnyone getting a HelloGoodbye feel?
    As for the "noticed" or not
    thing.. Well it was on either
    VH1 or MTV wen i jotted down the title.
    So tht prolly means tht b4 2 long
    they will have all the "notice" they
    can stand! haha

    On another note..Gotta check out the
    movie I suppose,to get the full circle
    here. so thts wat I'll do! thnx

    General CommentI loved this song, so when I saw there was a movie titled "Hannah takes the Stairs" on Netflix, I jumped to watch it. The song is obviously based on this movie. It mentions a trumpet solo and even pulls the line, "I'll work on the limbs if you work on the torso" from the film. Didn't care for the movie so much, but watching it did help me appreciate the song even more.
