Story

(Written for two very special girls named Hannah.  Hannah Pelton and my own Hannah Odom.)  

Lyrics

Follow in the footprints of your father

Worry that you let your mama down

Throw a kiss over your shoulder

Leave your worry in this town

 

There’s no need for you to whisper

You’ve got thunder in your bones

When it’s quiet you can find it

That’s why it’s good to be alone

 

Hannah, hold your heart

Let it speak your truth

Listen till you hear it

Then hold it like a jewel

Like a ruby, like an emerald

Like the diamond that you are

Hannah, hold your heart

 

When you look outside your window

All the sparkles catch your eye

It’s not easy to consider

All that’s beautiful inside

 

Make a promise to the night sky

If you fall with every star

Find a song inside each teardrop

Sing along till you remember who you are

 

Hannah, hold your heart

Let it speak your truth

Listen till you hear it

Then hold it like a jewel

Like a ruby, like an emerald

Like the diamond that you are

Hannah, hold your heart

 

All the things I wish I knew

When I was a girl like you

 

Hannah, hold your heart

Let it speak your truth

Listen till you hear it

Then hold it like a jewel

Like a ruby, like an emerald

Like the diamond that you are

Hannah, hold your heart
