Beckah Shae is amazing! You should have her in studio. She speaks such truth and can really bring freedom and healing to a lot of teen age girls.

Owl City is just one guy, Adam Young. I love Owl City! you should play more than just fireflies though. vanilla twilight, the saltwater room, tidal wave, and meteor shower are all REALLY good songs!! check 'em out!

Start again is awesome, here in this moment is ok, but fireflies? Why play that? It's not a Christian song and it's pointless. You guys should play eleventyseven instead of owl city. They have electronic sounding music and they're a Christian group.

Why not play Fireflies? I think it is a cute song and you people can shut up about it for heaven sake!

Ok, I just have to say that, "Here in this Moment" by Beckah Shae is absolutely an amazing song.  I anticipate hearing it each time I tune in to Air1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Just wanted to emphasize how much I luv it. ;> :>  It should be played several times a day.  First off, the lyrics are so beautiful, like a love song to God.  Then, her voice is so awesome.  I would love to just meet Beckah and her husband and just talk about how God gave them the inspiration to write such a powerful song.  One day. Smile  God Bless and Happy New Year y'all!!

You would not believe your eyes,
If ten million fireflies,
Lit up the world
As I fell asleep.

'Cause they fill the open air,
And leave teardrops everywhere,
You think me rude,
But I would just stand and stare.

I'd like to make myself believe,
That planet Earth turns slowly,
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
'Cause everything is never as it seems...

'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs,
From ten thousand lightning bugs,
As they tried to teach me
How to dance.

A foxtrot above my head,
A sockhop beneath my bed,
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread. (Thread, thread)

I'd like to make myself believe,
That planet Earth turns slowly,
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
'Cause everything is never as it seems... (When I fall asleep)

Leave my door open just a crack. (Please take me away from here)
'Cause I feel like such an insomniac. (Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep? (Please take me away from here)
When I'm far too tired to fall asleep. (Please take me away from here)

To ten million fireflies,
I'm weird 'cause I hate good-byes,
I got misty eyes when they said "Farewell",

But I'll know where several are,
If my dreams get real bizarre,
Cuz I saved a few and I keep them in a jar.

I'd like to make myself believe,
That planet Earth turns slowly,
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
'Cause everything is never as it seems...

(When I fall asleep)

I'd like to make myself believe,
That planet Earth turns slowly,
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
'Cause everything is never as it seems...

(When I fall asleep)

I'd like to make myself believe,
That planet Earth turns slowly,
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep,
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams...

whats so pointless about this song??????????

Austin United States
Haha, I don't have anything against owl city, he's cool. But I get tired of hearing fireflies everywhere I go lol. I hear it so much that I'll probably start dreaming of fireflies and stuff. Well anyway, fireflies is a cool song to hear every once in a while, but not all the time.

I thought Air 1 was a Christian radio station? I dont understand why they addded this song; it contains no spiritual content whatsoever. Whats the difference if i listen to a secular radio station and Air 1 if they BOTH play the SAME material. Wheres the music that glorifies Jesus?Because this isnt it. I understand people like the tune to the song and thats fine, but is this so-called "Christian" station the APPRORIATE place to play it?

Hi Nikki,

Thanks for your comment about Owl City on Air 1. We are a Christian station and would not play music that conflicts with our values and beliefs.

Owl City's Adam Young posted this quote on his myspace page: "I follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly. He is my life, my strength, my all." Our hope is that people who don't know Jesus will enjoy listening to Air 1, ... and come to know him as their personal savior.

This song should not be played on Christian Radio. No Christian message what so ever. Really it sounds like something you would hear on sesame street.

Austin United States
If he's a Christian, why doesn't he let others know about God through his songs? That's our purpose in life, to glorify God, do His will, and tell others about Him. Smile

I'm glad you're playing Fireflies.  That song topped charts in Australia, Sweden, the Netherlands, Ireland, etc, etc, etc.  

I wondered why you were playing it myself so I researched it.  

A station I listen to from France, "Allouette," plays the song as well.  This rocks.  I'm for singing, speaking, writing, talking, and every other -ing about Jesus Christ my Savior, but the world doesn't wanna hear churchey language.  I find it's a turn off to my non-believing friends.

If a song about Fireflies gets a French teenager to download the rest of the album, research what's-his-name Young and/or read that he said, "I follow Jesus Christ wholeheartedly..." in my opinion this is a beautiful testimony for Christ.  

Finally, I hear you (Austin, etc.) about letting others know about Christ in all a Christian does.  Rather than criticize him, I suggest praying that Mr. Young will have more opportunities to share more about his relationship with Jesus.  He's been give a stage I personally haven't.  Mine's my students - I teach middle school French!    

Coppelia, you rock!

Allez, Air1!!!
