“Sanctuary” by Joji

This is a love song in which Joji is identifying his significant other as his “sanctuary”. This is due to her fulfilling his desire to “(fall) in love”.  And they share a mutual relationship goal, which is “sincerity”.

So basically, this track is an expression of his yearning for the two of them to be together.  And he is especially fond of their nighttime interludes. Indeed Joji specifically tells his boo that when she needs some loving in the evening, he is just “one call away”. Moreover he has already concluded that this particular individual is “the one”. Or as the title implies, he enjoys her company so much that she has become his “sanctuary”.
