Hannah Fairlight Nashville, Tennessee

Hannah Fairlight's raw sense of risk and vulnerability cuts through today's plastic-pop driven industry. There are no gimmicks here. After a young start in rock clubs in New York City, Fairlight gravitated toward the southern rock of Nashville, TN where she and her band are currently based. ... more

Track Name: Sign of the Times
so esoteric not even your mom can relate
don't wanna hear it
less you've got something good to say

and you work so hard on your makeup and clothes
that you miss the point completely and you don't even know
and daddy's money only ever got you so far
that's all you are

it's a sign of the times
it's a sign of the times

instead of building a new age let's relive the past
and when the ship comes in I'll be tied to the mast

I am just a risk-taker little engine that could
I ain't no Darth Vader my intentions are good
and all you haters who've wasted all your breath for so long
you'll hear this song

it's a sign of the times
it's a sign of the

slow down you're going too fast
you're caught up in your glory days
you thought they would last
the devil's in the details when you look at your life
nobody's wrong or right
so why you causing a fight

so many bullies what are they all fighting for
they throw their punches from computers behind closed doors
so this is life
all this high tech shit
is this a flight simulator or a real space ship
I haven't felt the ground beneath my feet in so long

slow down you're going too fast
you're caught up in your glory days you thought they would last
the devil's in the details when you look at your life
nobody's wrong or right
it's a sign of the times
it's a sign of the times
it's a sign of the times
and times are changing
Track Name: Tomorrow
today I'm gonna fall behind doing what I need
lose my patience stop short changing who I want to be
believing there's a better world beyond this one of iron and gold

took a train to Pittsburgh following my muse
wandered through Milwaukee down broken avenues
and I lost my mind in Memphis watched my diamond dreams turn back to coal

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna reach the light
gonna hit the gas and go so fast I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow

when I look down at my body I don't recognize myself
I always thought that I'd grow up to be somebody else
there's a stranger in the mirror a stranger in my arms

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna reach the light
gonna hit the gas and go so fast I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow

there's nothing in my way today
I'm gonna lose my faith and back off all this silence
if I lose my faith it's okay
I'm gonna find my way back down the road again

standing at the bottom gazing at the top
burning with desire ticking like a clock
I spread my wings try one more time to fly

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna win the fight
gonna hit the gas and go so fast I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow
Track Name: Bright Future
whether you're fast or whether you're slow
whether you know or whether you don't
whether you're high or whether you're low
or whether you don't know which way to go
we've gotta keep shaking keep shaking it up

cus I think we've got a bright future
and we can believe what we want to

whether you win or whether you lose
whether you're forced you know you can choose
whether you're rich or whether you're poor
there's always a way to weather the storm
and we've gotta keep fighting keep fighting it out

cus I think we've got a bright future
and we can believe what we want to
yes I know we've got a bright future
and we can believe what we want to

heroes falling all around us and we don't know what to do
seeking all the safest shelters scared to fight for something new
you wonder why your dreams are lying balled up in the corner
gotta fight each step of the way
we've gotta keep shaking keep shaking it off

cus I think we've got a bright future
yes I think we've got a bright future

I know we've got a bright future
and we can decide what we want to
good thing we've got a bright future
Track Name: Don't Wait Up
midnight moon must be heartless
I can feel him looking down and taunting us
he's watched this scene play out a thousand times
but he's never known a love like yours and mine

working hours while the world is sleeping
running down a dream we both believe in
I can see you pacing cross the kitchen floor
waiting for me to walk through the door

don't wait up for me
gonna drive all night race the dawn
I might even make it home by three
baby don't wait up for me
when you open your eyes I'll be by your side
I'll have slipped in between the sheets
baby don't wait up for me

I can see you washing up the dishes now
while I'm flying fast past another town
I push the pedal down hard as it goes
cus I want ya more than you even know

don't wait up for me
gonna drive all night race the dawn
I might even make it home by three
baby don't wait up for me
when you open your eyes I'll be by your side
it's the only place I wanna be
baby don't wait up for me

why should this be any different than
all the mistakes and the countless heartbreaks
work so hard just to get by
to keep the love alive keep the love alive

baby don't promise me you won't cus I'll be home
baby don't wait up
