Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


C#m            F#m     C#m
My lover’s got humour,
                      F#m      E
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       F#m     C#m
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           F#m     C#m
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    F#m        C#m
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    F#m         E
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       F#m         C#m
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               F#m        B
A fresh poison each week.
                   A6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

C#m                 F#m   C#m
My church offers no absolutes.
                              F#m       E
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        F#m     C#m
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  F#m       B
Is when I’m alone with you.
               A6
I was born sick, but I love it.
A                      E
Command me to be well.
A E   Am E  Am E  E5 D#5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     D#5  D5    C#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   G#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     E5   D#5   C#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   G#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5 E5 D#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

C#m                   F#m         C#m
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               F#m       E
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       F#m      C#m
To keep the goddess on my side,
                F#m      B
She demands a sacrifice.
                        A6
To drain the whole sea,
                     C#m
Get something shiny.

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

Chorus:
                C#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   G#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     E5   D#5   C#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   G#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5 E5 D#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 A            E                 G#7/D#   C#m/E
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 C#m        A          E         G#7/D#        C#m/E
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 C#m      A           E       G#7/D#           C#m/E
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 C#m    A         E
   Only then I am human;
     G#7/D#      C#m     E/B
   Only then I am clean.
   Amaj A
   Oh,
   E   A E   Am E  Am E  E5 D#5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     D#5  D5    C#m

     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     E5   D#5   C#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   G#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    E
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   F#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               C#m                       F#5 E5 E5 D#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.
