Hozier - Take Me To Church: chords

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

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

 Am G G   F#     Em
     Take me to church.
     I’ll worship like a dog
                            B
     At the shrine of your lies.
     I’ll tell you my sins
                                G
     And you can sharpen your knife.
                    Am
     Offer me that deathless death,
               Em
     And, good God,
                           Am G
     Let me give you my life.

Em                       Am        Em
   If I'm a pagan of the good times
               Am      G
My lover's the sunlight
                       Am     Em
To keep the goddess on my side
                  Am    D
She demands a sacrifice
                    C
Drain the whole sea
                   Em
Get something shiny
                        Am         Em
Something meaty for the main course
                      Am        G
That's a fine looking high horse
                     Am     Em
What you got in the stable?
                        Am       D
We've a lot of starving faithful
                 C
That looks tasty
                  C
That looks plenty
                Am G
This is hungry work

 C        G
   No masters or kings
            B         Em
   When the ritual begins.
             C       G
   There is no sweeter innocence
     B              Em
   Than our gentle sin.
           C           G
   In the madness and soil
        B                Em
   Of that sad earthly scene,
          C        G
   Only then I am human;
