James Morrison – I Won't Let You Go lyrics
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'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. :)

    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.

    This song resonates with me, because the singer could be my husband, as we worked to save our marriage after he had an affair. And we did save it. And our union became stronger than ever. I did read though, that James wrote many of the songs on this CD when his dad was dying after they had reunited.

    The guy I love is going through a tough time with life and feels that there are some things he needs to figure out on his own and work through for himself. I came across this song after we talked about it and I feel like it describes how I feel. When things are going wrong, it's ok for him to take a little time to work through these troubling times and to try to fumble through the darkness because I don't have the answers either. But at the same time, if there's love there, just take the time to feel that love, feel that you matter to someone. But most importantly, no matter what he is going through, I won't let him go. I will always care for him and be right here for him if he needs me. If he needs time to hold himself he can have that time, and when the sky starts falling and he needs a hand to hold, I will be here to let him hold my hand. But as long as he needs or wants me here, I won't let go.

    This song means a lot to me. I broke up with my boyfriend a bit over a year ago because he didn't treat me right. I didn't want to, and it was the most painful thing I have ever done. But I had to do it for myself. He said he would wait around for me because he would never get over me. He said with our time apart he would go and get healthy so that one day we could be together again. Late last year I found out he has someone else. To me this song can mean two things I think of it as myself thinking to him I 'will never let him go' because I will never get over it. And I think of him saying he will never let me go, even though he did. The phrase 'if there's love just feel it' (and this whole song) to me says if you love someone just love them, be there for them, don't let them go because one day things could change. I don't want to move on because on day I'm praying he may want me again, this song says even in the darkest times, love is a decision, you decide to love someone and work it out. This song is about anging on. That desire to not want to let go. Ever.
