about

These songs are the result of great inspiration, great struggle, and great love...and while they were written by me, most often in an empty room with my guitar, I felt they deserved to be heard with the addition of great musicians and friends. This was created because of the generosity of many. Thank you to my unconditionally loving family, ceaselessly supportive friends, and the incredibly generous folks who made this EP possible through Kickstarter...I pray you are blessed and that this makes you proud. Please visit hannahharber.com or kck.st/OzC4zB to see the names of all those gave to this project... and to the Creator, let this life, let these songs, be forever Yours.

Track Name: Be Free
if there's a God in this town
i sure ain't seen Him around
maybe in your pretty white house He'll be found
or on the face of the loneliest man in this crowd

do you see like me
have your rose colored lenses turned to green
and can you hear my heart beat
the beautiful, tragic syncope

well the smartest words anybody ever did sing
were let it be

just cause this bottle holds
more than my stomach can
don't mean i'll leave this table with a single drop left to be had

i'll take my last quarter
and i'll bum a cigarette
i'll burn it to the filter, it's the only way i feel my breath

i found God in this town
the day they threw me out
mama gave me the keys to her car
and the Bible from her nightstand and she blessed my heart

somewhere on that drive
God spoke to me
just be free, be free, be free

love and live, live and love
love and live, live and love

well the smartest words anybody ever did sing
were let it be, be free
Track Name: Sin and Bones
there are angels in the rafters
whispering melodies
keeping time with my pacing feet
as the floorboards creak

and i hear that choir
calling out my name
on their lips it sounds almost as sweet
as my rebellion tastes

i'm just skin and sin and bones
with an old familiar ache
and someday i will be laid to waste
so find me redemption
but not for quitting's sake

dancing shadows in the crosswalk
sun shining through the leaves
and i'd let my feet go dancing too
if the red lights in this town ever turned to green

but i'm just skin and sin and bones
with an old familiar ache
and someday i will be laid to waste
so find me redemption
oh but not for running's sake

there are angels in the rafters
calling out my name
Track Name: Release Me
tell me why my sky is raining
and you're basking in the sun
yeah and why can't my heart find a melody
and you're singing songs of love

worn out welcome mat at your front door
don't welcome nobody anymore
yeah the letters have faded and the soles of my shoes are to blame
from all the time i stand and wait

what can a head tell a heart to believe
when the lips say i'll leave and the feet disagree
and the mind is clouded with grief

and that grief is the dust from your feet kicking up
on the road that you tread that you thought lead to us
but i never felt you close enough to touch

and this can't be a love and it sure ain't a life i'll lead
baby if i can't breathe, can't sing

what can a head tell a heart to believe
when the only thing my heart can do is scream
release me

oh release me, release me

what can a head tell a heart to believe
when the lips say i'll leave and the feet disagree
and mind is clouded with grief

and that grief is the dust
from your feet kicking up
as you thought you'd head towards us

but this can't be a love and it sure ain't a life i'll lead
baby if i can't breathe, can't sing
Track Name: Small Town Murder
you'd never hear about a small town murder
till the guilty name listed in the paper is yours
and for your picture in that dirty striped suit
you wore your smile and your mama's pearls

your mama grew up in this dusty town
and her pearls came out when the sun went down
most ladies wore them to go pray in their pews
not the mama you knew, not the mama you knew

but i ain't saying mama didn't pray
she prayed everyday, Lord knows she prayed
and i remember that the day daddy laid down in his grave
she sang amazing grace

and her voice'd sound so sweet
as she fell down to her knees
beg the sky for freedom and grace
come clean my guilty stains

daddy loved mama with his words and his hands
but don't dare call him a gentle man
the only thing he ever gave his lady was a whiskey habit
and a dark haired baby

and the day mama made daddy pay
she thought whiskey was her only escape
little did she know that that baby
would cover her mistakes
answer her prayers for amazing grace

amazing grace how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me
i once was lost but now i'm found
was blind but now i see

you'd never hear about a small town murder
till the guilty name listed in the paper is yours
and for your picture in that dirty striped suit
you wore your smile and your mama's pearls
Track Name: Harmony
take my words
take them for all they're worth
cause i'm only singing songs for you

take my mind and
keep me from thinking baby
this longing for a longing
that you satisfy

sing the harmony to every melody of my heart
only you know the tune
wreck me, undress me, then oh baby reconnect me
like only you can do

give me your words
give me your words and i promise i'll give them worth
let me occupy your mind
give me room to breathe and space to need cause
time in your mind is time out of mine

i hear harmony to every melody of your heart
yeah i recognize the tune
let me wreck you, undress you, then oh baby reconnect you
like only i can do
Track Name: Rain
if this rain
is any indication
of how my night's gonna turn into another day
i'll keep dreaming
as the sun's singing
her rays down on the city to dry the sidewalks again

cause i can't stand the thought of
one more rainy day without you
no that won't do

if this pain
could find the same ease to leave that you did
follow your lead
maybe this rain would
maybe this rain could
cleanse me of myself and bring relief

cause i can't stand the thought of
one more rainy day without you
no that won't do

oh there's nothing quite like
rain over new orleans
sun sing, sing, sun sing
oh there's nothing quite like
rain over new orleans
sun sing, sing

cause i can't stand the thought of
one more rainy day without you
no that won't do
Track Name: Haunted
you told me pretty baby
you would come back
when you found what you were looking for
well i guess that it eludes you
cause you never found your way back home

so i found your letters
and i burned them
till that paper went ashes
and i felt better
till i realized that your ring on my finger still burns

and you can't kill a ghost with flame
can't make him feel no pain
it's the worst kind of curse
being haunted by your own last name

i told myself i would feel better
i just needed some time but
it's been so damn long
and even the whiskey won't kill the burn

and i can't kill your ghost with flame
can't make him feel no pain
it's the worst kind of curse
being haunted by your own last name

ghost won't burn
ghost won't burn but boy you wait

you told me pretty baby
you would come back
when you found what you were looking for
well i guess that it eludes you
cause you never found your way back home

and i can't kill your ghost with flames
can't make him feel pain
it's the worst kind of curse
being haunted by your own last name
