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.

    I think that his lover has got a terminal illness and is going to die and he is telling her that no matter what, even death, he won't let her go, love this song and everything he does, he's just great.

    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?
