"Sing For The Day" as written by and Tommy Shaw....
Hannah you're with me in spirit wherever I go
To the ends of the earth and all points between high and low
Each night by the stage you appear as you are
The ever intangible child
Ageless and timeless as Dorian Grey
Oh Hannah I know that it's you and you're leading me on

Hannah you're my inspiration my fountain of youth
And as your surrogate leader I'm bound in your searach for the truth
And yes how the truth rushes out
When it's become honestly clear
I see your anxious and curious eyes
But Hannah I need you as much as you think you need me
Come to your window tonight and we'll fly to your dreams
And we'll

Sing for the day sing for the moment
Sing for the time of your life
Come for an hour stay for a moment
Stay for the rest of your life

Hannah don't fail me I need you like never before
Father time's at my back on my heels
Behind every door (and he says)
Son when the youth has but gone from your face
Will she let you grow older with grace?
Or will she give you up for one younger than you?
Oh Hannah please tell me the things that he says are untrue
Hannah I'm honestly hoping you'll always be there

Sing for the day sing for the moment
Sing for the time of your life
Come for an hour stay for a moment
Stay for the rest of your life

    General Commentfor some reason, i always pictue mary & pippin from The Lord of the Rings books singing this song with a bunch of hobbits in the background... i agree with sillybunny: this song is great, but somewhat unknown... no clue what it means, though...

    General CommentTommy Shaw wrote this in 1978 as an ode to his young fans at the time. He was emerging as a "teen idol" (and I was one of the many who had his face hanging on my bedroom wall), and "Hannah" is the generic name he came up with to represent all those fans. Later, in 1987, he gave his daughter this name.
