Sofia Karlberg - Take Me To Church Lyrics




My lover's got humor
He's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshiped him sooner

If the heavens ever did speak
He's the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday's getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week

We were born sick, you heard them say it

My Church offers no absolutes
He tells me, 'Worship in the bedroom
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well
Aaaaa. 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 my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

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 my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I'm a pagan of the good times
My lover's the sunlight
Keep the Goddess on my side
He demands a sacrifice

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 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 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

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 sin

In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am Human
Only then I am Clean
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 my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

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 my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

    Minha amada tem humor
    Ela é a risadinha no funeral
    Ela sabe que todos desaprovam
    Eu devia tê-la venerado mais cedo
    Se os céus alguma vez falaram
    Ela é a última profetisa verdadeira
    Cada domingo fica mais triste
    Um veneno fresco a cada semana

    Nós nascemos doentes
    É o que eles dizem
    Minha igreja não oferece absolvições
    Ela só me diz: Louve entre quatro paredes
    O único paraíso para onde serei enviado
    Vai ser quando eu estiver sozinho com você
    Posso ter nascido doente, mas adoro isso
    Ordene-me que eu me cure
    Amém, amém, amém

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

    Se sou um pagão dos bons tempos
    Minha amante é a luz do sol
    E para manter a deusa ao meu lado
    Ela exige um sacrifício
    Drenar todo o mar, pegar algo brilhante
    Algo carnudo para o prato principal
    Esse cavalo soberano é bem charmoso
    O que você tem no estábulo?
    Nós temos um monte de fiéis famintos
    Isso parece saboroso
    Isso parece abundante
    Esse trabalho é insaciável

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

    Nada de mestres ou reis quando o ritual começa
    Não há inocência mais doce do que nosso suave pecado
    Na loucura e imundície desta triste cena mundana
    Só então sou humano, só então me torno puro
    Amém, amém, amém

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

    Leve-me à igreja
    Louvarei como um cão no santuário de suas mentiras
    Vou lhe confessar meus pecados para você poder afiar sua faca
    Ofereça-me aquela morte imortal
    Bom Deus, deixe-me lhe entregar minha vida

  24. Jeon Jungshook

    beautiful voice but like is the cameraman okay?

  25. nehorai danan

    Somebody needs to give a spank to the guy with the camera

  26. cheek clapper

    "She changed the pronouns!! That must mean she's homophobic!!!" Lmaoo y'all it's really not that deep. Tons of people change the pronouns in songs so THEY can relate to the song. It's not homophobic at all you're just sensitive. I'm apart of the lgbtq+ community and even I know this isn't homophobic. Stop thinking everything is an attack and grow tf up you're not 5. If she wants to change the pronouns she can change them. And if you don't like that than you can sing the damn song yourself

    Sarai^.^May

    cheek clapper It is ironic, however, to cover a song about homophobia but try so hard to distance yourself from even the implication of being gay, and, frankly, it’s a bit distracting. Besides, it’s theorized that “she” refers to the church, and “he” doesn’t carry the same weight in that case. You shouldn’t have to change a song to relate to it. If everyone altered every portion of a song to better fit their own life, they’re better off writing their own. It’s not homophobic, and it’s not a huge deal either, but it is in poor taste, and it slightly undermines the cover’s integrity. Though she has a beautiful voice, maybe the emotion isn’t as poignant as the original because she simply jumped on a bandwagon and didn’t truly invest in it beforehand.

    @Sarai^.^May ok boomer

    milk bun

    it's not homophobic. it's ironic that she's covering a song about homophobia yet changing the pronouns to be heterosexual because she doesn't want to be "perceived" as gay.

  69. Sal O'Mahoney

    Just came from her cover of Back to Black (Amy Winehouse) to see if she's just not used to more emotional/serious songs. Then I see a cover of this song. I'll admit, performance here is a bit better than the Winehouse song. Still not enough emotion, however, unfortunately. And then I thought as well... Of course she's the type of person to change the pronouns 😂
