Harry Hannah Looks To The Heavens For Orion And Alya

The Cobourg Folkster is lost among the stars on his new romantic ballad.

Harry Hannah shares a tale of star-crossed love with his new single and lyric video Orion And Alya — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Even before the words come out of singer-songwriter Hannah’s mouth, you can feel the love through the piano keys. The gently swaying track induces a sense of calm as the lyrics begin: “Darling I got a lot of feelings on my mind. Thinking you’re the one that I might never ever leave behind. And I think I can admit that even if you doubt that.” Then he looks heavenward in the chorus:

“All the stars in the sky.
Oh they’re yours but if I had you.
I’d be Orion.
We could dance we could fly.
Out in the night sky.
I’d be your Orion.
My Alya.”

The lyrics of Orion And Alya express a desire to dance and fly with your true love under the stars. “Orion is one of my favourite winter constellations, so I figured I’d take a page from his book,” Hannah says. “Some say he’s a huntsman and some have called him the Archer of Hearts, so I kind of took that concept and ran with it in my own direction. Alya, in this case, represents Artemis — the goddess of chastity, hunting and the moon. Some tales say she’s Orion’s only true love, just like my Alberta.”

Known as The Cobourg Folkster, Hannah wears his heart on his sleeve on his latest track, leaving all his emotions out for everyone to hear. “I think finding true love can make you feel larger than life in some cases,” he says. “I’ve felt that before. After you lose it, or even just without it, you don’t feel whole — existentially lost among stars if I’m getting dramatic.”
