Hozier – Take Me To Church Lyrics

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral1
Knows everybody’s disapproval2
I should’ve worshipped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak3

‘We were born sick, ‘ you heard them say it4

My Church offers no absolutes
She tells me, ‘Worship in the bedroom.’5
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you6

I was born sick,
But I love it7
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.8

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies9
I’ll tell you my sins10 and you can sharpen your knife11
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side12

Drain the whole sea13
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No Masters or Kings
When the Ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin14

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am Human
Only then I am Clean
Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen.

[Chorus 2x:]
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life15
