Take Me To Church

I heard this song for the first time on the way to work about a week or so ago…I Shazam’d it – and it hasn’t left me since.  The artist is Hozier – a 24-year old Irishman who has a boatload of talent. His voice has a certain honesty to it, and at times he sounds like a “Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road”-era Elton John (especially during the chorus).

The official video for the song is very heavy, but today, in light of wanting to keep this site focusing on the positive, and preferring for people to draw their own conclusions about song meaning, I’m sharing a live version.

By Joy

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...


  1. It’s not about religion! lol – he talks about “deathless death” – “little death”

    post-orgasm state – and he talks about “no sweeter sin” and being clean afterwards…..I like his voice…

  2. Thanks for your words of encouragement! I’ve followed your blog in my absence and enjoyed it, even if I didn’t comment. I was too tired!
    I’m late to the cooking scene, but strangely energized by it. Who knows where it will lead? 🙂

What's your 2 sense?
