Performed by: Christina Metaxa
Music by: Nikolas Metaxas
Lyrics by: Nikolas Metaxas
Language: English
Placing: 14th (32 points) Semi 2


It's the question that drives us
Where we must go
It's the unknown that drives from us
What we want most
But the firefly sits in the corner and rests

And it won't care if you stare
But believe me, it's best to let go
Don't just go with the flow

And the firefly comes to you
Sits on your finger
It shudders and shakes
But she wants you to go with her now
Follow her out there

The firefly, spreading her wings open wide
Thinks the sky will come crashing down, fall to her side
She's afraid, but her fears slowly fade

So fly with the firefly
Fly side by side
Escaping the chains that held you from life
Don't look down
You're over the edge

Jump, take the leap of faith
Jump, take the leap of faith

It's the question that drives us
To where we must go
It's the unknown that drives from us
What we want most
But the firefly sits in the corner and rests

(It's the question that drives us)
(To where we must go)
(It's the unknown that drives from us)
(What we want most) Don't just go with the flow
(But the firefly sits in the corner and rests)

It's the question that drives us
To where we must go
It's the unknown that drives from us
What we want most
But the firefly sits in the corner and rests

(It's the question that drives us)
(To where we must go)
(It's the unknown that drives from us)
(What we want most) Don't just go with the flow
(But the firefly sits in the corner and rests)

Love the movement they did with the hand at some point. The thought behind the choreography/the props that were used is great! She also excelled in delivering a better live performance. Almsot deserved to qualify. ;)

This was one of the worst songs this year imo. It looked nice on stage, but still couldn't hide the mediocracy of the song.

Comparing to her NF performance she could deal with fear a little and she improved her vocals though it wasn't enough, imo. I like the song but performer was too unexperienced for such big events.

This was such a cute performance and Christina is so sweet, but wasn't enough to qualify for that song ;)

One of the growers of 2009, methinks. The first time I heard this, I thought it was a boring song and that Christina's vocals were weak. But her performance in the semi-final assured that its a sweet little song. But is "sweet" really enough to warrant qualification?

She is so beautiful and cute in the same time.I was happy to see her giving the votes this year.I wonder why we never do that.It's pretty cool ;)

As others have said already, she's so cute! She may have sounded a bit nervous when she was singing, but this was a pretty decent song
