When I Look Into Your Eyes

Album: Hold Your Fire (1992)
Charted: 65 8


  • When it came time to write songs for FireHouse's second album, their primary songwriters set out to compose something similar to the big hit from their debut album, "Love of a Lifetime." CJ Snare (vocals) and Bill Leverty (guitar).

    Once again, they came up with a big, romantic ballad, this time about seeing forever staring into a lover's eyes. It did the trick, becoming nearly as big a hit and fitting in very well among the hair metal power ballads of the early '90s.
