"Sanctuary" as written by and Cathy/chambers Dennis....
Just like the glorious northern star you guided me
Shining a light of pure tranquility
To a secret place where no-one else could go
Free to reveal the things I never show

Strong like a symphony
You protected me
From reality

Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe
Somewhere to call my sanctuary
Here in the dark I can be strong
Knowing that nothing can hurt from now on
Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe
Somewhere to call my sanctuary
Closer to the sun
To your heart I run

I was deserted like the moon is at the dawn
I never thought I'd ever find a place so beautiful
All my heart was falling like a stone
Deep into an ocean vast and colorful

Strong like a symphony
You protected me
From reality

Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe
Somewhere to call my sanctuary
Here in the dark I can be strong
Knowing that nothing can hurt from now on
Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe
Somewhere to call my sanctuary
Closer to the sun
To your heart I run

One step on the horizon
A safe place up on the mountain
So far away from chaotic life

    General Commentthis song is the most beautiful delta song, ever! it's about a place where she'd love to escape be where there'd be nothing troubling her. "Somewhere to love somewhere to breathe
    Somewhere to call my sanctuary"

    General Commenti'm listening to it right now to feel it stronger! When i first heard it, it gave me such an extraordinary feeling! The rithme, the music, the lyrics, the meening, somehow DIVINE! I listened it over and over and is such a delight. Delta is a rare artist , not star and she has become sooner than i thought one of my favourite singers, among Michael Jackson and A-ha!

    General CommentThis song, man, just listen to the lyrics. How can it not rock your world?!

    This is a song that describes how you can feel about somebody or even a place. Those that have found their sanctuary are blessed, truly blessed.

    General Commentthis is about wanting to be safe and not hurting anymore (delta wrote this while going through chemotherapy), and is my second favorite off Mistaken Identity.
