Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


Em             Am      Em
My lover’s got humour,
                      Am       G
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       Am      Em
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           Am      Em
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    Am         Em
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    Am          G
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       Am          Em
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               Am         D
A fresh poison each week.
                   C6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

Em                  Am    Em
My church offers no absolutes.
                              Am        G
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        Am      Em
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  Am        D
Is when I’m alone with you.
               C6
I was born sick, but I love it.
C                      G
Command me to be well.
C G   Cm G  Cm G  G5 F#5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     F#5  F5    Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     G5   F#5   Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5 G5 F#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

Em                    Am          Em
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               Am        G
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       Am       Em
To keep the goddess on my side,
                Am       D
She demands a sacrifice.
                        C6
To drain the whole sea,
                     Em
Get something shiny.

                        Am           Em
Something meaty for the main course,
                      Am          G
That’s a fine-looking high horse.
                    Am      Em
What you got in the stable?
                        Am        D
We’ve a lot of starving faithful.
                  C
That looks tasty;
That looks plenty.
This is hungry work.

Chorus:
                Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     G5   F#5   Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5 G5 F#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 C            G                 B7/F#    Em/G
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 Em         C          G         B7/F#         Em/G
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 Em       C           G       B7/F#            Em/G
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 Em     C         G
   Only then I am human;
     B7/F#       Em      G/D
   Only then I am clean.
   Cmaj C
   Oh,
   G   C G   Cm G  Cm G  G5 F#5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     F#5  F5    Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     G5   F#5   Em
     Take me to church.
                                                   B
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    G
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em                        A5 G5 G5 F#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.
