Song of the Day: Sinead O'Connor - Take Me To Church (and Streetcars)

It's been a while since I posted a Sinead O'Connor song (Song of the Day: Sinéad O'Connor - Troy, from June 9, 2010).  But she just came out with a new album.  Two songs that caught my ear...

Oh, Take me to church,
I've done so many bad things it hurts
yeah, Take me to church
but not the ones that hurt
'Cause that ain't the truth
And that's not what it's worth

Lyrics, from AZLyrics.com:

I have chosen, I have chosen
To become the love I'm longing
Love was never something beyond me
Underneath me or above me

And I will, I must and so I will
Dwell beneath the desert still
For there's no safety to be acquired
Riding streetcars named desire
