Interesting facts and trivia about Sanctuary. By Songfacts®.

"Sanctuary" is a lovelorn ballad in which Joji pours his heart out to a girl. Go ahead and bark after dark Fallen star, I'm your one call away Motel halls, neon walls When night falls, I am your escape Joji is yearning for the two of them to be together, urging her to let him be her sanctuary.

Produced by Justin Raisen, the instrumentation features ambient synths and a minimalist beat. The Miami native has also worked with Charli XCX ("London Queen"), Kim Gordon ("Murdered Out") and Lizzo ("Truth Hurts").
