Who Will Pray?

Album: We Came As Romans (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Singer Dave Stephens explained the track's meaning to Billboard magazine: "It's a pretty deep song. We like to keep our lyric open-ended, but it's about that feeling of when you've lost something in your life you can feel very separated and very confused. There's this feeling sometimes of, 'Where am I gonna go from here? Who's gonna be there for me?' When we lose what we thought was the light of our lives, it's easy to sink and lose yourself. It makes it even more difficult to know you can never go back."

    "The 'who will pray for me' isn't meant to be religious but rather wondering, 'Who cares about me?' After all, you only pray for those you care about."
