Too Many Churches

by Sofia Talvik

/

about

Too Many Churches is a timely song about pro-choice. Swedish songstress Sofia Talvik is peeking through the looking glass at the recent events in the U.S with the eyes of a spectator with a different perspective.

lyrics

You know Maria was just sixteen
Or maybe fifteen and a half
When someone broke into her bedroom
And tore her world apart

Maybe it was a total stranger
Or someone that she knew
Anyway he wasn’t there to hold her
When that baby’s due

And you can talk about salvation
And what the Bible has to say
But there’s too many churches and too little love
In this world today

And do you remember Fritzl
He had a baby with his girl
She was locked into the basement
For years that was her only world

Maybe it’ll be the next messiah
Or he’ll invent the atom bomb
Anyway it’s not a call that you can make make
For someone else’s womb

And you can talk about salvation
And what the Bible has to say
But there’s too many churches and too little love
In this world today
too many churches and too little love
In this world today

And when I’m driving through the country
I see houses falling down
People living under bridges
But there’s five churches in that town

And you can tell I don’t believe in
That there is a God above
But I believe there is compassion
We are capable of love

And if you talk about salvation
About a beating heart
But you’re acting out of power
to tear us all apart
And you can talk about salvation
And what the Bible has to say
But there’s too many churches and too little love
In this world today
too many churches and too little love
In this world today
too many churches and too little love
In this world today

She is a veteran performer with 8 original full length albums as well as numerous EPs, singles and tours behind her. ... more
