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                   Em 
We were born sick, you heard them say it
                      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
I was born sick, but I love it, command me to be well
  G  C   G    Cm    G Cm7 G  G F# F# F  
Aaaa  amen amen amen

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
     Em                       Am G G F#m 
Good God, let me give you my life

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

   C          G              B7         G  Em 
No masters or kings when the ritual begins
         C          G              B7          G Em 
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
       C           G            B7            G  Em 
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
      C          G 
Only then I am human
      B7         Em G 
Only then I am clean

 C  G Cm G Cm7 G Cm G G F# F# F  
Aaaa  amen amen amen
