It's like a storm
That cuts a path
It breaks your will
It feels like that

You think you're lost
But you're not lost on your own
You're not alone

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
If you can't cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I wont let go

It hurts my heart
To see you cry
I know it's dark
This part of life
Oh it finds us all
And we're too small
To stop the rain
Oh but when it rains

I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
And you can't cope
I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight

And I won't let you fall
Don't be afraid to fall
I'm right here to catch you
I won't let you down
It won't get you down
You're gonna make it
Yea I know you can make it

Cause I will stand by you
I will help you through
When you've done all you can do
And you can't cope
And I will dry your eyes
I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight
And I won't let go
Oh I'm gonna hold you
And I won't let go
Won't let you go
No I won't

    Everytime I hear this song my mind shoots to my best friend. I want her to know I got her back matter what and I will ALWAYS be there for her.

    In Sept of 2010 my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He past away Nov 20th. He was the greatest man I've ever known. With my parents living in California, I did a lot of traveling from Alabama to spend time with them during those few months. And was able to spend the month of Nov with him while he was on hospice. Now that I'm back home in Alabama, it kills me at times to be so far away from my mom as she grieves. Although we talk every day, I am not able to physically be there for her on those days that overwhelm her. Everytime I hear the song "I won't let go" I think of her. I told her about the song and that I think of her when I hear it. I had a cousin play it for her. She thanked me and said she cried. It does break my heart to hear her cry and I want to be there for her during this part of life. I want her to know that I will always stand by her to dry her eyes and fight her fights. This past Sunday, July 3rd, would have been their 47th wedding anniversary. It was a hard day but she knows she's not alone and is going to make it. I love you mom!

    I heard this song for the first time just days after my son and daughter-in-law lost their baby boy. She was 24 wks and was advised it would be best if she was induced and had him thru a natural delivery. As we sat with them that night my heart just broke for them. When our kids are young we can almost always kiss the pain away. When they get older you just can't do that. The only thing we would could do was be there for them and pray for strength. This song said in so many ways how I felt for my son and daughter in law that night and the days since. It is also and excellent example of how, if we let Him, our Heavenly Father is there for us.

    A year ago, I was sent home from the hospital, very ill. The Drs. didn't think I would make it. I wanted to give up instead of fight. My family kept begging me to fight it. The Drs. said I was a walking miracle. I'm still here. This song brings back all that I have went through and still going through. I'm still fighting. I love the song and want this one played at my funeral. Great job guys
