De Forest, Emmelie - Sanctuary Lyrics

(Ooh-ooh-ah, hoh)

A feather crept its way inside my head
I could have looked away and put its thought to bed
But I shook that feather loose inside my head
It only took a couple more till it had wings to spread, now

This is my sanctuary
This is my show and tell
So free
Remember every touch
So free in the light
My sanctuary

This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary

(Ooh-ooh-ah, hoh)

That feather drifted down inside my head
All neon bright and waiting, tethered to who I am
The hours soar like birds out of my hand
To trace the light and make it dance, now

This is my sanctuary
This is my show and tell
So free
Remember every touch
So free in the light
My sanctuary

This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary

(Ooh-ooh-ah, hoh)

For all that's sacred, all that's holy
For all that's sacred, all that's holy
So free

This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary
This is my, ooh, this is my, ooh
This is my sanctuary

    That's not how it works dude, I think you've missed Drunk Tonight & Hopscotch, which both have certainly turned away Emmelie's Eurovision fanboys by quite a margin

  56. 5855brot

    Jeg synes desværre din stemme fader for meget ind i musikken. Jeg har altid været fortryllet af din stemme, men dette nummer har ikke den nerve din stemme fortjener. I mine ører bliver det lidt trættende metervare-pop, og det er sgu ærgerligt med dit enorme sangtalent. Men selvfølgelig laver du dét du føler for og det skal du bestemt også gøre ligegyldigt hvad en enkelt lytter som mig siger. Jeg var bare mere fortryllet da det var din sangstemme der bar numrene.

  57. humbert luis

    I Love This Song !!

  58. Lalu Merchán-Eslava
