  • When I pray
    When I
    When I pray

    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

    Walk through the fire with you
    'Cause I know how it can hurt
    Being cut into and afraid

    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
    Oh, oh, oh oh
    When I pray
    Oh, oh, oh oh

    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

    And there's fire in you
    And you know it's gonna hurt, being cut into
    And afraid

    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
    Oh, oh, oh oh
    When I pray
    Oh, oh, oh oh

    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

    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

    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
    Oh, oh, oh oh
    When I pray
    Oh, oh, oh oh
