“Hannah” lays out some of the steps that were taken in order for this person to accept living their life alone. The song tells the story of a young woman, starting at the age of 26, who goes through the trials and tribulations of figuring out her own love story, with lyrics telling the sad truth that Hannah thinks may be come her fate.
Hannah grew immune to all the victims that
would pass through her duvet
Resorting to the classic “boys are stupid” the excuses
justified mistakes she knew just how to make
Hannah made her mind up years ago
she wouldn’t mind a life alone
Complications of misfortunate accounts
of almost finding love
for comfort we’re a bit too close.

Leah’s vocal performance, paired with this incredible storyline, are sure to captivate any listener’s heart and soul. “Hannah” tells about the beauty and grace there is for waiting on the perfect person and the right timing that we all sometimes forget.
In juxtaposition to the lyrics, the bubbly tune to the song makes it seem as though the story has a happy ending. The guitar gives the happy vibe by having a catchy riff throughout the whole song. When the kick drum comes in, it gives the feel that we see a lot of new up and coming country artists.
