Arthur, James - Say You Won't Let Go Lyrics

I met you in the dark
You lit me up
You made me feel as though
I was enough
We danced the night away
We drank too much
I held your hair back when
You were throwing up

Then you smiled over your shoulder
For a minute I was stone-cold sober
I pulled you closer to my chest
And you asked me to stay over
I said, I already told you
I think that you should get some rest

I knew I loved you then
But you'd never know
'Cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go
I knew I needed you
But I never showed
But I wanna stay with you
Until we're grey and old
Just say you won't let go
Just say you won't let go

I'll wake you up with some
Breakfast in bed
I'll bring you coffee
With a kiss on your head
And I'll take the kids to school
Wave them goodbye
And I'll thank my lucky stars
For that night

When you looked over your shoulder
For a minute I forget that I'm older
I wanna dance with you right now, oh
And you look as beautiful as ever
And I swear that every day you'll get better
You make me feel this way somehow

I'm so in love with you
And I hope you know
Darling, your love is more than worth its weight in gold
We've come so far, my dear
Look how we've grown
And I wanna stay with you
Until we're grey and old
Just say you won't let go
Just say you won't let go

I wanna live with you
Even when we're ghosts
'Cause you were always there for me
When I needed you most

I'm gonna love you 'til
My lungs give out
I promise 'til death we part
Like in our vows
So I wrote this song for you
Now everybody knows
That it's just you and me
Until we're grey and old
Just say you won't let go
Just say you won't let go

Just say you won't let go
Oh, just say you won't let go

Arthur, James Say You Won't Let Go Comments
  1. Zzz Bleh

    This is the first song my girlfriend(well, now ex) of 2.5 years sent me. She told me that it's very beautiful but we'd just started dating and she was shy to pull off something too cheesy so she didn't really dedicate it to me but she did sing this for me later. We were together for a little more than a year and then I had to leave for college. Our LDR was rough, we had our ups and downs but after I'd met her a year later, I texted her that I was sorry things weren't the best when we weren't together but I remember now again how safe it felt with you when we were together in the same place. Anyway, 4 months after that we broke up. And it's been 4 months since we broke up and I still cry almost everyday. This song isn't helping and I know this is pathetic but I never thought she'd leave. I wasn't prepared for this.

    The awful/ second-rate vids that his leeching PR company are putting out are seriously hurting Jame's career. GET RID James.

  82. budgi regar

    Jame's magic is this comment ' I'm crying over someone who doesn't exist'. Ditch the 'team'. Use your instinct, ' I' just want to break free'. beloved Freddy, go for it James, break free
