"Firefly" was the Cypriot entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, sung by Christina Metaxa. The song was composed by Metaxa's brother Nikolas Metaxas. A second version was made from the original version that won in Cyprus at the national final. The new version includes a higher key change (formerly in E major, now in F# major), some added parts and a more up-beat tempo.

It performed at the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 on 14 May 2009 but failed to reach the final.
