A Prayer for Me In Silence

Album: Speed Of Darkness (2011)
  • songfacts ®
  • Flogging Molly frontman Dave King explained to Alternative Press magazine why he got his wife Bridget Regan to sing this tune: "I wrote that song in about 15 minutes. I was playing it, and I was really enjoying the words, and I thought it would be beautiful to hear a woman sing those lyrics. And I thought I would love to hear my wife's voice sing that. She got in there. Bridget's not the kind of person that likes to be in the spotlight. So for her to do something like that is a big step for her. She started to open her mouth, and we all said, "Holy s--t!" That is so Beautiful. I always love having songs that have an edge and a beauty to them, as well."

    He added: " remember the first line, 'I've been walking miles forever, through these footprints of my life/When I offered you my sadness, you took home with delight' - it was like she takes my good and my bad, and she makes me very happy. And I just wanted to celebrate that."
