I Won't Let Go Lyrics

It's like a storm
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
If you...

    When I first heard this, I thought of my daughter. But when I studied the words it came to me that yes, as a parent we would do this for our child but I think it is much higher/greater than that. I think it is God speaking to each one of us. We are his children and his loving arms protect and guide us.

    This song means to me is that my long distance lover of 350 miles has just lost his wife to cancer, and to me every word is so true of this song, from the dark time which he's going through right now, and that he's not alone I will stand by him, I will wipe his tears when we meet again in July due to covid 19 I can't see him sooner

    My interpretation of this song is of a loving father that would go through all extremes for his children like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

    The song was God inspired but written by a mother who's child was adopted and the mother wants the child to know she will be there even is she can't rite now and the fact is the child was abused by adoptive parents who cut off all contact with the mother after the child boldly told the mother of the abuse. The mother had wrote this song to save her daughter. But sadly it was stolen from her. But it was this song that actually helped the mother (Me) realize that she wrote many other songs and all are hits. All are stolen. No one of course believes her and it still happens. So God is pretty angry at America. For stealing from HIM. See I asked the holey spirit to come into me so I could write this song. I also made a vow that if for some reason my children where not returned to me that I would go to the depths of hell and save his children. I thought I would save abused children and it is mine who was abused. But not by me. The fact is God is the only one who knows how wrong I am judged and how the people who are taking children are false and corrupt. They killed a senator from Georgia who was going to blow the lid on corrupt DCFS and it was swept under the rug. See Nancy Sheiffer murder. Her report on evil DCFS system abusing children by Government and pedephiles.

    These words take me to my brother-in-law's death. He was my sister's soul mate, they had been together for more than 50 years. Watching her say her final good-bye to him was heart breaking. Her and I spent weeks together after his passing. This song is exactly how I feel about my sister. Wanting to help, but not really knowing how to do it. It says it all...

    I think this song is about someone that is going through a hard time and don't know what to do and is thinking about suicide. but a friend is there for them to help them through it so they don't have to fight the battle alone.

    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.
