Beautiful Bride

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This headbanger is the second single from American alternative metal band Flyleaf's sophomore album, Memento Mori.
  • In an interview with Artist Direct, the comment was made that everything feels so connected on the album. The interviewer then asked lead singer Lacey Mosley how the band approach a song such as this number where there are so many styles and transitions. She replied: "The record was written in a disconnected way, but it came together to tell an amazing story. I feel like it flows in that sense of moving you through lives that all end up saying the same thing. Life is short. With 'Beautiful Bride,' the way it fit together was magical. It wasn't thought out. The feeling was there."
  • The members of Flyleaf are all Christians and in this song they are calling the church to be unified as the Body of Christ.
  • Guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya told The Silver Tongue this is his favorite song on the album, "because it's so hopeful. We all want to hear that we can fall into the place that we were meant to be. We want to know that we were made with a purpose and that we're needed and wanted."
