about

This is Hannah Peckham's first full-length album debuting as herself. Formerly known under the stage name Hagab the Grasshopper, Hannah has come into her own with seven new songs on her original compilation, "Goodbye Blue Moon". These previously unreleased tracks are heartfelt, raw odes to those experiences that help us grow into ourselves. They are longing, learning, love songs. They are lost and found songs.

Concluding "Goodbye Blue Moon" are two of Hannah's most known tracks, common around campfires and in crowded basements. These songs are dedicated to all those who have listened to and supported Hannah throughout the many years of her making as a musician. They are for the love of the past, and its lasting influence on the present and who we become. May these songs stick with you wherever you go - when and wherever you become something you believe in. "Goodbye Blue Moon" is Hannah Peckham doing just that.

Track Name: Goodbye Blue Moon
You came in like some vagabond
smelling of the sun
and got stuck in my head
every ballad by Dylan

you crossed my mind
and we crossed paths
at just the perfect time
to watch from my rooftop
a blue moon on the rise

blue moon
blue moon

you brought with you the traces
of a life lived on the run
the same old shirt from yesterday
perhaps your only one

I wish you'd stayed a few more hours
to sing your travelin' songs
but oh I knew when you walked in
you wouldn't be stayin' very long

blue moon
goodbye blue moon

your skin it had a glow about it
eyes that were so kind
the rough hands of a travelin' man
with turquoise on his mind

you left me in the mornin'
with my coffee
feelin' so alive

you looked up to the balcony
and blew a kiss goodbye

goodbye blue moon
goodbye blue moon
goodbye blue moon.
Track Name: Stars and Smoke
You're beautiful
across the room I knew you felt the pull
we're strangers hangin' onto fraying rope
you didn't fail to meet my every hope

now you're making your way off to Boston
like you were in the rain
of that mornin'
like you were in the rain
of that mornin'

When you came my way
there wasn't time enough for me to say
how I'd lost an earring under stars and smoke
you unrelenting in your gentle hold

Now you're making your way back to Oregon
like you were in the rain
of that mornin'
Now you're making your way back to Oregon
like you were in the rain
of that mornin'.
Track Name: Pretty Boy
How many, how many, how many ways can you use me baby?
how many how many ways can you show me that you don't care?
just a kiss another night like this to fool me baby
how many ways can you show me that you don't love me?

how many, how many, how many ways can you woo me baby
you show me glimpses of a man I want to tame
but how many, how many times
can you bat those eyelashes and run?
without your looks I swear nobody would remember your name

you drew the line and crossed it in kind like you do baby
how many, how many, how many times can you slip right out my door?
I fell for you more than once but I'll tel you the truth baby,
I don't care if i see your pretty face anymore


without your looks I swear nobody would remember your name, pretty boy.
Track Name: Digital Campfire
This is what it's like
to sit alone on the kitchen floor
this is what it's like
to have nothin' anymore
this is what it's like
to live life
this is what it's like
this is what it's like

this is what it's like
to sit alone on the kitchen floor
this is what its like
to stare into the storm
this is what it's like
just a candle and my hands
this is what it's like
to rewrite my life without a man

oh how I'm trying
oh how I'm trying
to live life

this is what it's like
to feel like Jason Anderson
this is what its like
to be understood by one
this is what it's like
alone at night
to live life

oh how I'm trying
oh how I'm trying
to live life
oh how I'm trying
oh how I'm trying
to rewrite

hold each other close
like this is all you have
hold each other close
like this is all you have
this is all you have
to live life.
Track Name: Leaving With Nothing
No man ever protected this heart
but checked in long enough to make me
feel what was missin'

when I say I love you it'll be with everything, now
wouldn't you say I'm deserving of the same?

'cause I can't waste all this love on myself
I've got to give it up for somebody else
that's how it works with me
I'll show you if you wanna see

I'm just supposed to believe that I'm worthy of lovin'
that when a man walks away I know he's leavin' with nothin'

'cause I can't waste all this love on myself
I've got to give it up for somebody else
that's how it works with me
I'll show you if you wanna see

I'm just supposed to believe that I'm worthy of lovin'
that when a man walks away I know he's leavin' with nothin'

No man ever protected this heart
but checked in long enough to make me
feel what was missin'

when I say I love you it'll be with everything
now wouldn't you say I'm deserving of the same?

'cause I can't waste all this love on myself
I've got to give it up for somebody else
that's how it works with me
I'll show you if you wanna see

I'm just supposed to believe that I'm worthy of lovin'
that when a man walks away I know he's leavin' with nothin'.
Track Name: Christmas
I've lied through my teeth
to people who I felt I couldn't trust
which was everyone
and even myself

but I'll be okay
to love you from far away
cuz you of all people deserve this song
just for the person I know you are

it's Christmas and I thought
by now I'd be over you
like the moon
but I fell like snow back into your arms

so much the same
apart from how distance
has made us estranged
but you are still welcome inside this heart.
Track Name: The Good In You
Don't know why I trust you but I do
Please don't run away when I sing to you
Said that you were scared
when you heard he'd left me there
But I only see the good in you
I only see the good in you

Ya know I tried to fight you with my mind
Heart already broke, but I survived
So I'll give in to now
though the loss will come around
Cuz I only see the good in you
I only see the good in you
I guess what we see is what we choose

What made you come out with the truth?
Tryin' not to hold you in my heart like I wanted to
Should I be afraid
of this perfect mess I've made?
Cuz I only see the good in you
I only see the good in you
I only see the good in you
I only see the good in you.
Track Name: We Are Sea Stars
Jesse says hey man
it's just like Wyoming
there aren't any mountains
but I hear a phone ring

we watch the moon rise
and Jason likes lemons
but right now it's almost
like bein' in heaven

When Cella sails away
always someone sails away

Hey man don't worry
I'll be back tomorrow
you tell me your problems
I'll borrow that sorrow

cuz you taught me to feel here
to laugh hard at Dylan
and there's no escapin'
unless I go swimmin'

When Cella sails away
always someone sails away
and I'd like to remember
all of your names
but we all will
sail away

well it's hard to tell if
there's clouds or just skyline
let's not decipher
the starlight from fireflies
OOOOooooooo
when someone sails away

We all will sail away.
Track Name: What I believe In
Words are better written down
because when you say them out loud
no one knows if you mean them

but I mean his now it's not a lie
I can't give up so I'll get high
off someone else's words when I read them

I hope I become something I believe in
Yeah, I hope I become something I believe in

laying in the dark sometimes
I feel my eyes and they're still dry
I hope they say that way
everyday that I keep breathin'

I found my lights were best turned off at night
to see those sparkling kites in flight
and wonder if there's sky if there's a reason

I hope I become something I believe in
I hope I become something I believe in

I'll shut my mouth but not the door
and tell you one more thing before
you walk away cuz I'm afraid you're leavin'

And I've started off to find myself
but before goodbyes above all else
I hope you know you're one thing I believe in.
