Take Me To Church - Ed Sheeran version
Hozier

Lyrics

My lover's got humour.
She's the giggle at a funeral.
Knows everybody's disapproval.
I should've worshipped her sooner.
If the heavens ever could speak,
she's the last true mouth piece.
Every Sunday's getting more bleak.
Fresh poison each week.
"We were born sick,"
I heard them say it.

My church offers no absolutes.
Told me,
"Worship in the bedroom."
Only heaven I'll be sent to
is when I'm alone with you.
We were born sick, but I love it.
Command me to be well.

Amen, amen, amen.

Take me to church!
And I'll worship like a dog 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 life.

Take me to Church!
And I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies.
I'll tell you my sins,
so you can sharpen your knife
and 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 side,
she demands a sacrifice.
To drain the whole sea,
get something shiny,

something meaty for the main course.
That's a fine-looking high horse.
What you got in the stable?
We've got a lot of starving faithful.
That looks tasty.
That looks plenty.
This is hungry work.

Take me to church!
I'll worship like a dog the shrine of your lies.
I'll tell you my sins,
so you can sharpen your knife,
offer me that deathless death.
Good God, let me give you my life.

Take me to Church!
And I'll worship like a dog the shrine of your lies.
I'll tell you my sins,
so you can sharpen your knife,
offer me that 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 sin
in the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene.
Only then I am human.
Only then I am clean.

Take me to church!
And I'll worship like a dog the shrine of your lies.
I'll tell you my sins,
so you can sharpen your knife,
offer me that deathless death.
Good God, let me give you my life.

Take me to Church!
And I'll worship like a dog the shrine of your lies.
I'll tell you my sins,
so you can sharpen your knife,
offer me that deathless death.

Good God, let me give you my life.
