When it's black,
Take a little time to hold yourself,
Take a little time to feel around,
Before it's gone.
You won't let go, but you still keep on falling down.
Remember how you saved me now,
From all of my wrongs.
And if there's love just feel it,
And if there's life we'll see it.
This is no time to be alone, alone, yeah
I won't let you go.

Say those words, say those words like there's nothing left.
Close your eyes and you might begin that there is some way out.
Open up, open up your heart to me now.
Let it all come pouring out,
There's nothing I can't take.

And if there's love just feel it,
And if there's life we'll see it.
This is no time to be alone, alone, yeah
I won't let you go.

(Won't let you go, won't let you go)

And if your sky falling,
Just take my hand and hold it.
You don't have to be alone, alone, yeah
I won't let you go.

(Won't let you go, won't let you go)

And if you feel the failing of the light.
And you're too weak to carry on the fight.
And all your friends that you care for have disappeared.
I'll be here now darling, forever, holding on.
Woah

And if there's love just feel it,
And if there's life we'll see it.
This is no time to be alone, alone, yeah
I won't let you go.

(Won't let you go, won't let you go)
Woah no

And if your sky falling,
Just take my hand and hold it.
You don't have to be alone, alone, yeah
I won't let you go.

(Won't let you go, won't let you go)
Woah no, yeah

I won't let you go, no I wont let,
I won't let you go, no I wont let,
I won't let you go, no I wont let you go.

    This song is the most beautiful song i have ever heard. I broke up with my girlfriend about a week ago and have now discovered that she has leukemia. Very saddening. This is her favourite song. This song makes me cry every time. Why does bad things always happen to good people? Maybe everything happens for a reason right?

    I've recently been diagnosed with a number of illnesses including fibromalgia, graves disease, osteo-arthritis, and thryoid problems. This song resonates with me because my husband could be singing that song to me when my body is wracked with pain and I feel I don't want to go on. He lays awake with me at night when I can't sleep because of the pain. I liken myself to the woman in the film clip lying in the middle of the road.

    I think the song is about a woman with depression. She is sinking into her black hole and he is trying to help her get out of it because he loves her and would stick by her no matter what. The other people are her friends that also care about her and want to help her through this hard time and make her realise how valuable to them she really is. Feels like it was written for me. :)

    The clocks ticking. And he has realised before time runs out he must run after her, as he doesn't want to loose her, as he loves her too much, no matter what heartache they have been through. He knows they have must be together. As the love they feel for each other can survive anything.

    I think that the story james morrison is trying to get across is that he loves his wife sooo much that whatever happens between him and her there is nothing that won't stop him helping her or getting back to her. Or another. Story that he is trying to get across is that his wife left him and he was devastated and he won't stop loving her until she decides to go back out with him. That's my views any show me your ideas I love this song anyway gp.
