Song Released: 2011
I Won't Let Go Lyrics
That cuts a path
It's breaks your will
It feels like that
You think you're lost
But your 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

My niece ended her own life at the age of 15 and I heard this song and immediately thought about if only I was there for her more. I listened to this song again this morning and seen it more like God saying he will never let us go. I think this song has so many different meanings and agree with other posters that say that it meets a lot of different situations. Kudos to Rascall Flatts for this song as well as the teen suicide song "Why"

This song means so much to me. In April of last year my cousin, she is only 6 years old, found that she had a cancerous tumor on her brain stem and wrapped around her spine..it was six inches long and causing her pain. At the end of May she had a surgery to remove it I made her and "her team" (the family) t-shirts with the lyrics of this song on them to remind her that she will never be alone. She made it through the surgery and they removed 95% of the tumor. It was a long recovery and this song played in my head every day from the day i heard it. She just got an MRI and now she got bad news, its gotten larger and she now has to start cemo. She will have to keep fighting, "You're gonna make it, yeah i know you can make it" I love you Lex! Keep being strong.

Its a song from the parent to the child, My mom dedicated this song to me. I have been fighting for 3 years with many medical problems and my mom said this is her song to me. I believe this song was written for his daughter.

My wife introduced me to this song a few months before our wedding, and it struck me with such a sense of how much I loved and cared for her, and visa versa. It brings me almost to tears everytime I hear it, because we cant be together all the time, for I serve our country as a Sailor in the USN. It was our first dance, and I was trembling as I held her so dearly in my arms, till the very last note of that song. I think this song will forever pluck at my heart-strings till the end of time.

Jason Sellers and Steve Robson wrote the song together. Robson had begun the song already when he and Sellers got together to write it. Sellers told Country Weekly that he thought Robson's existing lyrics were "inspired", and thought that he would write a song with an "uplifting lyric". He said they intentionally did not define the song's character, so that the message could be applicable in various different situations: "This could be something you'd say to someone in the family that's a soldier, fighting overseas… or to your mom, dad, wife or husband[…]I felt it could also be God saying it to someone."[

The day my grandson was born I promised him I would always be there for him.It took someone like Rascal Flatts to put how I feel in my heart into words and music.I will never let go... I will always be there for him... I will fight for him. He is now 19 and I have never let go.

When I hear this song, no matter how many times it reminds me of my husband, when I almost died, I needed Heart Surgery. He stood by me, and I saw the look on his face like th

I heard this song when i was going though a rough seperation with my soon to be ex-wife. I had a special woman walk into my life and she has stood beside me and not let me down. When I thought happiness was a made up word she proved me wrong. I think it is about finding that special someone and them finding you and never wanting to let them go.

I think this would be a great song for St. Jude's Childrens Hospital. They stand buy every child both financially and medically. I took a tour and it was the most awesome place I have ever seen!!
