Biography

Morgan Hann is a singer/songwriter from Brisbane, Australia who has been writing, gigging and recording his own sound for many years. His music can be described as a mixture of Neil Finn, Tim Rogers, Paul Kelly and Josh Pyke.

His debut album 'Sleep On Sweet Girl', due for release in 2008, is a collection of heartfelt songs that contain within them a sense of time and place. This collection of songs holds tales of regret, abuse, hopelessness as well as hope, peacefulness and the human condition of putting one's foot in it. It was written, produced, recorded and accompanied on drums, bass, guitars, keys and backing vocals all by himself in a small studio in the Southern suburbs of Brisbane.

Hopefully before too long you'll be able to hear the music as well and be touched by the experience.

Lyrics

Time On Your Side

Written By: Morgan Hann

I know you’ve waited so long
You’ve seen the life you want to live right up close
And I know you’re waiting for a chance
But I’d sooner die, than wait until my life runs dry

Not so fast
You’ve got plenty of time on your side
Not so fast, you’ve the whole world to explore
I’m making dreams for you, instead of waiting for my dreams to come true

There’s always something to deceive
The downward track you wanna walk ends up to steep
And you, you want your place to unwind
But tomorrow’s just another day, back to the grind

Not so fast
You’ve got plenty of time on your side
Not so fast, you’ve the whole world to explore
I’m making dreams for you, instead of waiting for my dreams to come true

Time is on your side
While you’re rushing for defeat
Time is on your side
You’ll wait forever just to see
That tomorrow was the day of your life

Don’t worry babe, it’s in control
There’s life beyond the magazines, the faker’s world
And you, you know there’s so much more for you
And you’d sooner die, than wait until you’re life goes by

Not so fast
You’ve got plenty of time on your side
Not so fast, you’ve the whole world to explore
I’m making dreams for you, instead of waiting for my dreams to come true

… time is on your side

Running In Circles

Written By: Morgan Hann

You never were one to forget
The glove fits like a noose round your neck
Picking up pieces was the last thing that you ever want to do

You’ll never find out just who you are
The luggage rolling round the boot of your car
Running away was not the answer to those questions you didn’t ask

You’ll never find out just what it means
And your wounds will never be clean
Running in circles takes you right back to the start

You hit the Bruce Highway at dawn
Your feelings naked as the day they were born
Over the hum of the road, you heard all the words and the tunes on the radio

You’d never heard a song in your days
That connected with a thought that betrays
You’re only scared, you’re not alone
We only wish that you’d come home

You’ll never find out just what it means
And your wounds will never be clean
Running in circles takes you right back to the start

You’ll never find out just who you are
With a bag and a dodgy guitar
Running in circles, you’re running in circles

I’m sure you’ve heard this kind of story before
About waste, and whatever for?
She never really gave it a chance
She never really saw her heart in his hands

She found out just what it means
For her wounds to be cleaned
Running in circles takes you right back to the start

You’ll never find out just who you are
With a bag and a dodgy guitar
Running in circles, running in circles
Running in circles takes you right back to the start
Running in circles, running in circles
Running in circles, takes you right back... to the start.
