Take Me To Church – Piano / Vocal Hozier Cover ft. Morgan James


My lover’s got humour He’s the giggle at a funeral Knows everybody’s disapproval I should’ve worshipped him sooner If the heavens ever did speak He’s the last pure mouthpiece Every Sunday’s getting more bleak A new poison every week “We were born sick” I heard them say it My church offers no absolutes He says “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 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 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 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 god on my side He 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 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 and you can sharpen your knife Offer me that deathless death Good God, let me give you my life Take me to church 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 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 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 life Take me to church at the shrine of your lies Ohh you can sharpen your knife Offer me that deathless death Good God, let me give you my life Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen Amen

  1. End of the day guys, love is love, you can talk about your god not agreeing with this and that, love is love. End of <3

  2. She’s got a gorgeous voice and it was really beautiful and all but the mess ups in the lyrics were really distracting lmao

  3. Wow – just wow – this lady rings my bell. Can't remember being this moved by a song I'd never heard before.

    Time we ditched the 'industry' who thwart this kind of talent in favour of their big $elling 'products'.

  4. The pianist is looking up and adjusting his playing to her subtle voice changes….these two are so in sync it is flawless….

  5. She deserve to be a superstar. She must be one of the best female singers i the world, and still it´s a lot of extremely good singers out there. I´m stunned by hearing Morgan James singing "Take me to the church". Don´t forget to listen to her own "Reckless abandon" and "you never lied"

  6. 🙂 It's not about two gay guys. It's not about a straight couple. It's not about any specific relationship. Let's set the Music Video aside for a moment…just like taking training wheels off a bike. And let's listen to the lyrics. Because at its core, this song can be applied to ANYONE – and a singer can change the pronouns to suit their tastes.

    Take me to church, I will worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
    (Church is the bedroom in this song. The lyrics tell you to worship in the bedroom. Think of lies like foreplay or makeup [the falsehoods of seduction] – but that's a bit oversimplistic. Suffice it to say, the singer will worship ANYthing that comes out of their love's mouth. Like a dog…lapping at it])
    I will tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife.
    (I can tell you the things that turn me on. My kinks. A sharpening knife is an allusion to a hardening ehem but we can literally apply this to any sort of sex drive that is being stimulated. They are about to worship)
    Offer me that deathless death, good god, let me give you my life.
    (Orgasm. Should go without saying.)

    Apply this to the entire song. Writing a song about sex is one of the oldest ways to write a song…and the writer actually did a really good job with the imagery here. Of course, this is just one interpretation/analysis, but it is the most bare-bones one.

    Here's a more subjective analysis on my part: This is a song about lovers that find themselves in that unfortunate position of being made to feel like their love is wrong. And that can happen to anyone. The singer's ultimate belief is that none of it matters – the only thing that matters, here and now, is the passion and pleasure – sacrificing everything else – and damning the consequences.

  7. Got this linked to me by someone that I had a wonderful, but forbidden, night with!
    It was several years ago and for the most part it's me that send "inapropriate" messages to her, sometimes when I drink.
    Not innapropriate in any other sense than to tell how I still feel about her 😉 She never replies, but I have Always felt that she feels the same, but she is much smarter than me, it would be almost impossible for us to pursue something without great consequenses 🙁
    So needless to say I love this song now! 🙂

  8. She's normally great but that was a little pitchy!! …sorry people, don't hate!! …a few notes there made me cringe!! …I know she can do it better …and so does she!!

  9. I know I sound like an ass but it's easy to be taken by her beauty because she is so beautiful but I was listening to the audio while working at my desk without watching the video and could not help but notice these few faulty notes. I've seen her NY versions which are way better so please Morgan James and her fans don't hate me!! I still think you're amazing …and so beautiful!!!

  10. Best song about a dude blowing a dude I know of… I wish I could find a women that loves sucking dong as much as the dude in this song.

  11. well darling, that did it, I guess I needed a good cry, you always get me to that Sarah Vaughn chill tears, but, … what can I say, thanks sweetheart, and that piano guy

  12. This is truly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. I have listened to it a half dozen times in the past few days and it still brings me to tears. I am a 57 year old, battle hardened retired military veteran, I have seen some shit, and this, this does it to me. Well done Ms. James. I feel the pain emoting from your vocals and it eats my soul, in a beautiful way. God bless. Thank you.

  13. OMG .. the goosebumps just come in waves of incredible pleasure. Listening to this immaculate chanteuse is pure ecstacy and a very spiritual experience.What a
    performance, including the pianist.

  14. Can someone explain to me how the original song was about a forbidden gay love? I agree with Morgan James that switching the pronouns will make it work as one, but the original song is a man using she/her to describe his lover.

  15. It is now 2018, and 2015 as you were interpreting this song it was the in the most miserable time of my life. You were interpreting this song so tense and for my feeling with so much anger and so beautiful. It is now three years, many things are happening but you stay for me the Lady with the best voice.

  16. Utterly beautiful. I love Hozier singing this but her voice is so clear and pure that I can't do anything but love this version

  17. Morgan James : One of the supreme singers on postmodern jukebox. on this one , she again put more power and emotion in her voice that I thought was possible . and as a thoroughly devout old male , white ; I remember now at 73 why I always fell in love with blondes. it's 2019 September and I can't wait to get a little extra cash to go see postmodern jukebox live somewhere down here in Florida.

  18. You guys are big, really the best. Then, Morgan James, she's wonderful! A powerful, sweet voice. You make me excited! I love you. Good all. Kisses from Italy

  19. avec la cover de Simon Morin à mon oreille la plus intelligente et subtile reprise ( en ce jouant des difficultés ! le 1er take me to church pianissimo = du grand art ) Mme James est une cantatrice au plein sens du terme = respect je suis fan !

  20. me: oh, she's got a good voice, can't wait to hear what she does with the ultimate wlw anthem
    her: should've worshipped him–
    me: no nope no no thank you no

  21. People so she could sing the phonebook and it would be beautiful. Hell, she could've sung the Mueller report and that would've got people listening

  22. great song but imagine singing a hozier cover and changing the pronouns like ok sis,,, is it too much just to be gay for 4 minutes and 40 seconds

  23. HOLY SH*T what a performance – since Youtube's algorithms caught up with my musical tastes a fortnight ago and recommended a PMJ cover (7 Nation Army) I have had a VERY enjoyable few days exploring their 'back catalogue' and by default Morgan James & Hayley Reinhart – (see the Dear Prudence duet – its sublime) – but this tops everything I've watched so far – jaw droppingly good……..

  24. My lover's got humor
    She's the giggle at a funeral
    Knows everybody's disapproval
    I should've worshiped her sooner
    If the Heavens ever did speak
    She is 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
    She 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
    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
    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 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 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 and you can sharpen your knife
    Offer me that 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 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
    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
    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 that deathless death
    Good God, let me give you my life

    Googled. Hehe
