Here and Now

Songfacts®:

  • In early 2014, Fireflight announced that they had been released from their recording contract. The following year Innova was released independently, funded by a crowdfunding project. This song chronicles the uncertainty and frustration the band felt during this time of change.
  • Vocalist Dawn Michele told NewReleaseToday: "This whole album was a transition for us in a lot of different ways, coming to a new place in life and as a band, going independent and everything. We were going through really big changes. For this song, I wanted to capture that feeling we go through in a tough season or in struggling for a while, looking for meaning or looking for a way out of a situation or wondering if you are ever going to reach your dream after a lot of work. The song is about finding that moment of letting go and moving forward with what God's been trying to teach you."

    "More than getting what you want, it's understanding how God has been changing you through the process. Sometimes our circumstances don't even change, but God changes us. For me, I get so distracted by what's in front of my face: bills, sickness or some other distraction. God is so much bigger and greater than our experience on earth, and He's always working for us."
