Love Hard Rock? Then You’ve Got to Check Out Fireflight!


Ladies, for those of you who love the sound of hard rock music but want to glorify God with what you listen to, then consider the awesome band Fireflight! Since 2006 this band has been putting out great hard rock and alternative metal sounds…with inspirational and Christian-focused lyrics.

I really enjoy Fireflight, and more specifically, Dawn Michele’s voice. If you’re not familiar with the band, check out the following clip featuring a song from their recent album, “NOW.”


“Stay Close,” Fireflight

Here are some of the great lyrics from the song:

Precious denial, a stone to break my back
The chains I carry won’t cut me any slack
Imprisoned by fear with no room for my heart
My only hope, only you can heal the scars
Every turn leads me to a new dead end
Lost again, I’m screaming your name

Come close, come close
And call my name
How can you turn your back on me
When you know my pain
Stay close, stay close
Light up the night
Save me from the part of me
That’s begging to die

Stay by my side
If you leave me I will die
Stay by my side
If you leave me I will die
Stay by my side
If you hold me I will fly
If you hold me I will fly
Will you hold me

    I have found that I like listening to different genres, as long as the bands are Christian. I love Fireflight and Skillet, but I also love listening to Christian pop, like Britt Nicole. It depends on the lyrics to me, really.
