Fireflight with the Story Behind Their Song 'Desperate'

 "Desperate is a song about being pushed to the very edge of your strength. It is when you feel so far from hope that it seems like you can't even see God anymore, yet you know in your heart He is the only one that can save you. You don't understand why He hasn't rescued you yet, but you know He's your only chance; and you cry out to Him like you never have before, much like David did in Psalm 28 when he says 'To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place.' THIS is desperation and total dependence on Him."
