I heard this song on the Radio on Monday…somewhere in Texas, and it reminded me of the impact that this song had when it first came out.  How does a song come along, slide off the radios, and then come back at the most meaningful times.  I think of all the strong men that have stood behind their lady and hugged them while crying.  The best friend that has held the hand of a lady while driving to chemo or puking in the parking lot right after.  You know who you are…you are special.  This song has such strong emotion…I admit I have cried to it…

When I was looking for the music video to post, I found the set of lyrics and the artist story behind the lyrics:  …”‘I Won’t Let Go’ is special to me because I’m a Christian. It felt like to me, because we didn’t define the character in the song, it could be a friend saying it to a friend, it could in some sense be God saying it to someone, it could be you saying it to your husband or wife … So in that sense, the song’s exciting to me, because it’s got an inspirational message. It says something good that lifts people up.   …  I was thinking, if you were quoting what someone was saying in their own words … if they were saying this to someone in the family that’s a soldier that’s over there fighting, or to your mom, dad, wife, husband … I think everyone wants to have someone say to them, “Hey, I can’t stop it from raining on you, but I will be here to help you get through.” ”  Read the Full Article:http://www.theboot.com/2011/03/25/rascal-flatts-i-wont-let-go-lyrics/ 

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
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 go

It hurts my heart to see you cry
I know its 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
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
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
