Church Of Desire

Album: Stranger in This Town (1991)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to a full 6 minutes 8 seconds, "Church Of Desire" is another track from the vastly underrated Stranger In This Town album. Written by Sambora alone, this is a place we've all been, when it's all over, and we're dancing with the Devil down lonely street. Powerful imagery, but at the end of the day all any of us can do is attempt to put the pain and hurt behind us and struggle on hoping it won't happen again. >>
