Lyrics and Music by Andrew Hozier-Byrne


Bm             Em      Bm
My lover’s got humour,
                      Em       D
She’s the giggle at a funeral,
                       Em      Bm
Knows everybody’s disapproval,
                           Em      Bm
I should’ve worshipped her sooner.
                    Em         Bm
If the heavens ever did speak,
                    Em          D
She’s the last true mouthpiece.
                       Em          Bm
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak,
               Em         A
A fresh poison each week.
                   G6
“We were born sick.” You heard them say it.

Bm                  Em    Bm
My church offers no absolutes.
                              Em        D
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom.”
                        Em      Bm
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
                  Em        A
Is when I’m alone with you.
               G6
I was born sick, but I love it.
G                      D
Command me to be well.
G D   Gm D  Gm D  D5 C#5
Amen, amen, amen.

Chorus:
     C#5  C5    Bm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F#
     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.
                   Em
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     D5   C#5   Bm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F#
     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.
                   Em
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5 D5 C#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

Bm                    Em          Bm
If I’m a pagan of the good times,
               Em        D
My lover’s the sunlight.
                       Em       Bm
To keep the goddess on my side,
                Em       A
She demands a sacrifice.
                        G6
To drain the whole sea,
                     Bm
Get something shiny.

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

Chorus:
                Bm
     Take me to church.
                                                   F#
     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.
                   Em
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     D5   C#5   Bm

     I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.

     I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
                   Em
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5 D5 C#5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

 G            D                 F#7/C#   Bm/D
   No masters or kings when the ritual begins.
 Bm         G          D         F#7/C#        Bm/D
   There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin.
 Bm       G           D       F#7/C#           Bm/D
   In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene,
 Bm     G         D
   Only then I am human;
     F#7/C#      Bm      D/A
   Only then I am clean.
   Gmaj G
   Oh,
   D   G D   Gm D  Gm D  D5 C#5
   Oh, amen, amen, amen.

     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5
     And, good God, let me give you my life.

     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.

     Offer me that deathless death,
               Bm                        E5 D5 D5 C#5
