Half Drunken Prayers

Story Behind The Song

I don't think there's a soul alive who doesn't know someone who's long been drinking or drugging or using and abusing, and now its slowly become the harbinger of truth while painfully bringing about the destruction of love. That being said, Its semi-autobiographical. -C. Hurst

First thing this morning
apologized for last nite
had a cigarette and hoped that
everything was alright.

Well the snow hasn't melted and the icy wind still blows
but i said my prayers this morning,
felling better i suppose.

Well half drunken prayers only get halfway to heaven,
and I'm praying, that God will meet me halfway,
cause half drunken prayers only get ya halfway to heaven,
But they're ten times as heartfelt, as the sober prayers i pray.

Afternoon and evening,
I didn't speak a word,
my apology this morning,
was the last thing that you heard,

Now night has fallen over and I'm,
drowning out the dark,
with these desperate words upon my lips,
and a prayer upon my heart.


Song was well written...nice sounds on the guitar had a nice country feel to it... felt a little old timey country which is in my opinion the better choice in country music nowadays.... Keep up the good work looking forward to hearing more from you

good old guitar country with simple sing-along feeling to it

Love the lyrics! Great old fashioned country song!
