"For My Wedding" as written by and Larry John Mcnally....
For my wedding, I will dress in black
And never again will I look back
Ah, my dark angels we must part
For I've made a sanctuary of my heart

To want what I have
To take what I'm given, with grace
For this I pray
On my wedding day

For my wedding, I don't want violins
Or sentimental songs about thick and thin
I want a moment of silence and a moment of prayer
For the love we'll need to make it in the world out there

To want what I have
To take what I'm given, with grace
For this I pray
On my wedding day
On my wedding day

I dream, and my dreams are all glory and light
That's what I've wanted for my life
And if it hasn't always been that way
Well, I can dream and I can pray
On my wedding day

So what makes us any different from all the others
Who have tried and failed before us
Maybe nothing, maybe nothing at all
But I pray we're the lucky ones; I pray we never fall

To want what we have
To take what we're given, with grace
For these things I pray
On my wedding day
On my wedding day

    General CommentI'm pretty sure "all my dark angels" is correct. He is saying he must part ways and finally forget about his past "loves" and bury them in the past. The rest of the song I'm pretty sure is self explanatory. Beautiful song

    General CommentBeautiful song, yes.
    Dark angels? Maybe Henley is referring to his old ways, old habits. He needs to change for this marriage to work and to last. He's committed to it, too.
    I see some congruent thoughts with this song and "Everything is Different Now" on the same album.
