"I Won't Let You Go" as written by and Timothy David Foreman Jonathan Mark Foreman....
When it feels like surgery
And it burns like third degree
And you wonder what is it worth?
When your insides breaking in
And you feel that ache again
And you wonder
What's giving birth?

If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down
You could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go
I won't let you go

When your fear is currency
And you feel that urgency
You want peace but there's war in your head
Maybe that's where life is born
When our façades are torn
Pain gives birth to the promise ahead

If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None of this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go

I won't let you go
I'll always be by your side
Yeah

If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go
If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go

(I won't let you go)
I won't let you go
(I won't let you go)

There ain't no darkness strong enough that could tear you out from my heart
There ain't no strength that's strong enough that could tear this love apart
Never gonna let you go
Never gonna let you go

No I won't let you go

    General Comment"Last year was a really tough year for me. This album (Where The Light Shines Through) was, in many ways, an attempt to find a path towards hope, armed with the flashlight of melody and lyric. "I Won't Let You Go" is a song that faces the darkness head on.

    I tried to sing this one from the other side- from the inside of love, from the conclusion of the story. If the author of time and space, the one who breathed my soul into existence, were to sing me a song about trust, it might go something like this, "I love you and I won't let you go." I believe that where you put your trust begins to define you. This is a song about learning to trust in a transcendent love that will never leave me.

    You want peace but there's war in your head.

    Maybe that's where life is born. When are facades are torn. Pain gives birth to the promise ahead." -- Jon Foreman
