“Live” Music Video, by Saphyre Rain band

The 21st century sees the human race facing a suicide epidemic and raging self harm statistics.  Open any newspaper, watch any nightly news report and you're surrounded with stories of addiction, abuse, neglect, fear, and pain.  In your heart, you ask all the hard questions  –  Is this darkness taking over?  

Saphyre Rain wants to remind the world that hope is alive.  The band is composed of husband and wife, Austin and Amanda Harras.  

Located in Northern Colorado, the two co-compose their material, with Austin as drummer and Amanda as vocalist/guitars.  Released in March 2016, the Break the Cycle EP (single Live) is characterized by driving metallic beats, dark guitar-riff tonality, and sincere melodic colors. 

“Our generation is at a huge risk.  There are so many kids out there who want to make a difference in our world, and we all struggle with pain in one form or another.  Now is the time to fight back.  Each and every one of us is making a difference in our world; we do have the power to change it for the better”, says Saphyre Rain.

The band name was chosen based on the formation of the sapphire gemstone.  A sapphire is created over time, under intense heat and pressure.  Whatever 'impurities' are present at the time of formation result in the sapphire's final color.  “We wanted to have a metaphoric name for the band to encompass the idea that beautiful things come from the pain that we go through; essentially, that there is hope even in the darkness”, says Amanda.  

The vision behind Saphyre Rain is to tell our generation of the light, through music.  

We want every person that we come into contact with to know:  you are loved, your life is precious, and your story is a critical element to the future.  

Lyrics


Will anyone notice if I'm gone?
I guess I'm just looking for a reason to…Hold on
If none of this matters, then why am I here?
Will somebody notice before I…Disappear?

Here is your reason
Somebody cares
If your heart is still beating
Then there's a reason you're here
Don't let them tell you
That you're better off gone
I want you to live on…Live on

It's not over, baby, you're not done
Frozen fingers embrace this…New sun
You're going through hell and it's nothing but hurt
Life is a war, but freedom has…Come for you

Here is your reason
Somebody cares
If your heart is still beating
Then there's a reason you're here
Don't let them tell you
That you're better off gone
I want you to live on…Live on

Breathe it in and breathe it out
Your life isn't over now
Your story's beginning
Hold your breath against the pain
Hope is at your door again
You're not on your own anymore

Hold on

Hold on…Hold on…Don't give up hope
You're not alone anymore
