If the Heavens ever did speak
Am G
She is 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
