lyrics

A queer smell hangs around the house tonight
Embers lie cold in the grate
I call your name, my own voice replies
A silence like that cannot lie
Once we were one and we’ll be one again
In this life because there is no next
You made me yours and now I’ll make you mine
I was water you made me wine

So I built this church from your bones
And I worship there every day
And this cloak I’m in
I sewed from your skin
And your flesh I made my own

Love on love you shovelled love on love
Love on love and love again
You fanned the flames that burn me up
You made me come and come again
I loved you like a Christian loves his god
Except that you were real
There’s nothing in this world that you can’t see
Or touch or taste or feel

So I built this church from your bones
And I worship there every day
And this cloak I’m in
I sewed from your skin
And your flesh I made my own
