  • I hear a lot about sinners
    Don't think that I'll be a saint
    I might go down to the river
    'Cause the way that the sky opens up when we touch
    Yeah, it's makin' me say

    That the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
    Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
    On God
    Runnin' to the altar like a track star
    Can't wait another second
    'Cause the way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
    Feels so holy

    I don't do well with the drama
    And no, I can't stand it bein' fake
    No, no, no, no, no, no-no-no
    I don't believe in nirvana
    'Cause the way that we love in the night gave me life
    Baby, I can't explain

    The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
    Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy
    (Yes) On God
    Runnin' to the altar like a track star
    Can't wait another second
    The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
    Feels so holy

    They say we're too young and
    The pimps and the players say, "Don't go crushin'"
    Wise men say, "Fools rush in"
    But I don't know
    They say we're too young and
    The pimps and the players say, "Don't go crushin'"
    Wise men say, "Fools rush in"
    But I don't know

    The first step pleases the Father
    Might be the hardest to take
    But when you come out of the water (water)
    I'm a believer, my heart is fleshy
    Life is short with a temper like Joe Pesci
    They wanna come and sing your praises, your name is catchy
    They don't see you how I see you, Parlay and Desi
    Cross, Tween, Tween, Hesi' hit the jet speed
    If they get messy, go lefty, like Lionel Messi
    Let's take a trip and get the Vespas or rent a jet-ski
    I know the spots that got the best weed, we goin' next week
    I wanna honor, wanna honor you
    I'm my father's child
    I know when the son takes the first steps, the Father's proud
    If you make it to the water He will part the clouds
    I know He made you a snack like Oscar Proud
    Suffer it to be so now gotta clean it up
    Formalize the union, in communion He can trust
    I know I ain't leavin' you like I know He ain't leavin' us (ah)
    I know we believe in God and I know God believe in us

    The way you hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
    (It feels so)
    Feels so holy, holy, holy, holy, holy (feels so)
    Feels so holy Writer/s: Anthony Jones, Chancelor Bennett, Jonathan Bellion, Jorgen Michael Odegard, Justin Drew Bieber, Michael Pollack, Steven Franks, Tommy Brown

  • Quade from PortlandJon bellion wrote the whole song, it’s been leaked all over and me and many others heard him sing it live. He sold it to JB and that’s where his credit comes from. It’s annoying to see that he’s not getting credit for such a popular song he wrote.
