Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


Bbm            D#m     Bbm
My lover’s got humour,
                      D#m      C#
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       D#m     Bbm
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           D#m     Bbm
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    D#m        Bbm
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    D#m         C#
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       D#m         Bbm
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               D#m        G#
A fresh poison each week.
                   F#6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

Bbm                 D#m   Bbm
My church offers no absolutes.
                              D#m       C#
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        D#m     Bbm
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  D#m       G#
Is when I’m alone with you.
               F#6
I was born sick, but I love it.
F#                     C#
Command me to be well.
F# C# F#m C# F#m C# C#5 C5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     C5   B5    Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     C#5  C5    Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5 C#5 C5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

Bbm                   D#m         Bbm
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               D#m       C#
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       D#m      Bbm
To keep the goddess on my side,
                D#m      G#
She demands a sacrifice.
                        F#6
To drain the whole sea,
                     Bbm
Get something shiny.

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

Chorus:
                Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     C#5  C5    Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5 C#5 C5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 F#           C#                F7/C     Bbm/C#
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 Bbm        F#         C#        F7/C          Bbm/C#
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 Bbm      F#          C#      F7/C             Bbm/C#
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 Bbm    F#        C#
   Only then I am human;
     F7/C        Bbm     C#/G#
   Only then I am clean.
   F#maj F#
   Oh,
   C#  F# C# F#m C# F#m C# C#5 C5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     C5   B5    Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     C#5  C5    Bbm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    C#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   D#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bbm                       D#5 C#5 C#5 C5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.
