Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


F#m            Bm      F#m
My lover’s got humour,
                      Bm       A
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       Bm      F#m
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           Bm      F#m
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    Bm         F#m
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    Bm          A
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       Bm          F#m
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               Bm         E
A fresh poison each week.
                   D6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

F#m                 Bm    F#m
My church offers no absolutes.
                              Bm        A
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        Bm      F#m
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  Bm        E
Is when I’m alone with you.
               D6
I was born sick, but I love it.
D                      A
Command me to be well.
D A   Dm A  Dm A  A5 G#5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     G#5  G5    F#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   C#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    A
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     A5   G#5   F#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   C#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    A
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5 A5 G#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

F#m                   Bm          F#m
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               Bm        A
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       Bm       F#m
To keep the goddess on my side,
                Bm       E
She demands a sacrifice.
                        D6
To drain the whole sea,
                     F#m
Get something shiny.

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

Chorus:
                F#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   C#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    A
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     A5   G#5   F#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   C#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    A
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5 A5 G#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 D            A                 C#7/G#   F#m/A
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 F#m        D          A         C#7/G#        F#m/A
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 F#m      D           A       C#7/G#           F#m/A
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 F#m    D         A
   Only then I am human;
     C#7/G#      F#m     A/E
   Only then I am clean.
   Dmaj D
   Oh,
   A   D A   Dm A  Dm A  A5 G#5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     A5   G#5   F#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   C#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    A
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Bm
     Offer me that deathless death,
               F#m                       B5 A5 A5 G#5
