Justin Timberlake – Sanctified Lyrics

Justin Timberlake Sanctified Lyrics (feat. Tobe Nwigwe)

I was acting like I didn’t know who it was, but okay
I know who’s up there, y’all
The guy is right up there
Th-th-that, th-th-that right there is the, is the mighty, mighty JT

You know I’m an animal (Animal)
I belong in the wild, wild, wild
When I get out of control
Ain’t no bringing me down, down, down
Yeah, you know I go crazy
I go off the wall, no MJ, but I’m walking on moons, it’s amazing, baby
I know you’re a good one, closest thing to a saint (Good one)
So I come alive every time we interchange
Yeah, don’t condemn me
I get down on my knees and confess to your temple, you take me and serve me mercy

Something about how we break all of the rules make a sinner feel so blessed
You take all of my wrongs, move right along, take me and fix my mess
Get me up when I’m low, hand on my soul, like you see right inside
I come out a new man, no blood on my hands, uh, sanctified

Rid me of my sins, then you forgive them
Make me a new man and I’m sanctified
Sanctified
Rid me of my sins, take and forgive them
Can I get a witness?
Sanctified
Ooh, sanctified

Ooh, I gotta come to you, only you when I want to repent
Surrender my all, right at your throne and do it again
Yeah, you crucify me
Burn me up until there’s nothing left inside me
Right hand to your every word
My religion, my love
Baptized in your ocean, willing and open, never enough
Yeah, you never judge me
You just take your halo, put it right above me

And it’s something about how we break all of the rules, make a sinner feel so blessed
You take all of my wrongs, move right along, take me and fix my mess
Get me up when I’m low, hand on my soul, like you see right inside
I come out a new man, no blood on my hands, sanctified

Rid me of my sins, then you forgive them
Make me a new man, and I’m sanctified
Sanctified
Rid me of my sins, take and forgive them
Can I get a witness?
Sanctified
Ooh, sanctified

I get down on my knees every night and I pray for you
Prophecy of my savior, I’m made for you
I get down on my knees every night and I pray for you (Hallelu’, Hallelu’)
Prophecy of my savior, I’m made for you (No doubt)

Swear it’s only right that I hold the toast just for my protection
Need the Holy Ghost till the resurrection
But I still might beckon angels, my complexion to swoop down yo’ direction and make yo’ connection to me
Yeah, just a bit stronger, I know it’s wrong to sit back and conjure, a million ways for you to heal the monster that has been postured inside my loins
Yeah, boing, that’s what it do, when I see you
I know you see through me and I ain’t see through
But you never treat me like I am fecal matter, wow, had to smile
I know I ain’t spoke to you like this awhile
I know you cried me a river like the Nile
But hell I got baptized in it and came out
So, so, so, so much better, know that I could never try to measure the weight of your glory
But sometimes with you’s like my heads in the pool, and my eyelids have opened in chlorine
Ah, that ho can burn, but in return, all I discern is to be different one has to unlearn and just be

Sanctified
Rid me of my sins, then you forgive them
Make me a new man and I’m sanctified
Sanctified
Rid me of my sins, take and forgive them
Can I get a witness? Huh
Sanctified
Ooh, sanctified
Ooh, yeah, huh
Ooh, sanctified
Ooh, yeah
Okay
