Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


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

Cm                  Fm    Cm
My church offers no absolutes.
                              Fm        D#
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        Fm      Cm
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  Fm        Bb
Is when I’m alone with you.
               G#6
I was born sick, but I love it.
G#                     D#
Command me to be well.
G# D# G#m D# G#m D# D#5 D5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     D5   C#5   Cm
     Take me to church.
                                                   G
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    D#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Fm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Cm                        F5 D#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     D#5  D5    Cm
     Take me to church.
                                                   G
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    D#
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Fm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Cm                        F5 D#5 D#5 D5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

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

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

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

     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 G#           D#                G7/D     Cm/D#
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 Cm         G#         D#        G7/D          Cm/D#
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 Cm       G#          D#      G7/D             Cm/D#
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 Cm     G#        D#
   Only then I am human;
     G7/D        Cm      D#/Bb
   Only then I am clean.
   G#maj G#
   Oh,
   D#  G# D# G#m D# G#m D# D#5 D5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.
