‘Take me to church’ is haunting.

I find the lyrics to this song by the Irish singer Hozier haunting and compelling. It is supposed to talk of homosexuality and the struggles that such relationships face in the modern day and age, but well, the way the words have been strung together by the writer of the song, is quite remarkable and struck a chord with me. “Offer me that deathless death” is a phrase that somehow sticks in my mind and makes me ponder over the meaning of things. Even the music video, rendered in black and white and featuring large number of outdoor and field sequences impressed me visually and was a perfect accompaniment to the actual tune. I find myself humming the words every so often and this just proves the impact that good music can have on the mind and soul.

I just happened to read an article about the same and the deeper meaning that the song tries to convey. Beautiful, is all that I have got to say.

Princess chelsea!

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Yulia, what could you want from him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Painting lions on the back of a cookie tin
Is is better to be different than to be better?
Yulia, how can you be with him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

That you are happy
