Years & Years – Sanctify lyrics

[Intro]
When I pray
When I-
When I pray

[Verse 1]
In the night, you come to me
'Cause I'm the one who knows who you are
Ooh
Give me your confession
Saying lately, life's been tearing you apart
Now

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Walk through the fire with you
'Cause I know how it can hurt
Being cut in two and afraid

[Chorus]
So don't break (break)
Sanctify my body with pain (pain)
Sanctify the love that you crave (crave)
Oh, and I won't, and I won't, and I won't be ashamed
Sanctify my sins when I pray
When I pray

[Verse 2]
You don't have to be straight with me
I see what's underneath your mask
I'm a man like you
I breathe the rituals of the dancer's dance
Oh, oh

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And there's fire in you
And you know it's gonna hurt being cut in two
And afraid

[Chorus]
So don't break (break)
Sanctify my body with pain (pain)
Sanctify the love that you crave (crave)
Oh, and I won't, and I won't, and I won't be ashamed
Sanctify my sins when I pray
When I pray

[Bridge]
You'll find redemption when all this is through
Father, forgive me for finding the truth
Love takes its toll on me
I'm just like you
Maybe it's heavenly
Maybe it's heavenly

[Chorus]
So don't break (don't break)
Sanctify my body with pain (pain)
Sanctify the love that you crave (crave)
Oh, and I won't, and I won't, and I won't be ashamed (no, no, no)
Sanctify my sins when I pray
Sanctify my body with pain (sanctify, sanctify my sins)
Sanctify the love that you crave (sanctify)
Oh, and I won't, and I won't, and I won't be ashamed (sanctify)
Sanctify my sins when I pray
When I pray
When I pray
