Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


G#m            C#m     G#m
My lover’s got humour,
                      C#m      B
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       C#m     G#m
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           C#m     G#m
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    C#m        G#m
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    C#m         B
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       C#m         G#m
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               C#m        F#
A fresh poison each week.
                   E6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

G#m                 C#m   G#m
My church offers no absolutes.
                              C#m       B
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        C#m     G#m
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  C#m       F#
Is when I’m alone with you.
               E6
I was born sick, but I love it.
E                      B
Command me to be well.
E B   Em B  Em B  B5 Bb5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     Bb5  A5    G#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   D#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    B
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   C#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               G#m                       C#5 B5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     B5   Bb5   G#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   D#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    B
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   C#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               G#m                       C#5 B5 B5 Bb5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

G#m                   C#m         G#m
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               C#m       B
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       C#m      G#m
To keep the goddess on my side,
                C#m      F#
She demands a sacrifice.
                        E6
To drain the whole sea,
                     G#m
Get something shiny.

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

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

     B5   Bb5   G#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   D#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    B
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   C#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               G#m                       C#5 B5 B5 Bb5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 E            B                 D#7/Bb   G#m/B
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 G#m        E          B         D#7/Bb        G#m/B
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 G#m      E           B       D#7/Bb           G#m/B
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 G#m    E         B
   Only then I am human;
     D#7/Bb      G#m     B/F#
   Only then I am clean.
   Emaj E
   Oh,
   B   E B   Em B  Em B  B5 Bb5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     Bb5  A5    G#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   D#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    B
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   C#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               G#m                       C#5 B5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     B5   Bb5   G#m
     Take me to church.
                                                   D#
     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
                                                    B
     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   C#m
     Offer me that deathless death,
               G#m                       C#5 B5 B5 Bb5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.
