Say You Won't Let Go - James Arthur




The Experience: I'm so in love with you... Just say you won't let go... Love's only plea is fidelity...


Music video: The video follows a couple from that first meeting until death do us part. The beginning is an interesting detail - the actors who play him and her walk into the studio, sit down, and begin to make a song. It's a great image of love that only works when both sides sing - live - in harmony.

The Meaning of Just Say You Won't Let Go: James Arthur sings love from beginning to end. Attraction - I met you in the dark, you lit me up. Nobility - we drank too much... and you asked me to stay over, I said, I already told you I think that you should get some rest. Details - I wake you up with some breakfast in bedAnd above all fidelity - I wanna stay with you until we're grey and old, I'm gonna love you 'til my lungs give out, I promise till death we part like in our vows. Love so faithful that it wants to live with you even when we're ghosts

Ask yourself: How faithful is your love?

Album: Back From The Edge (2016)

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 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 till 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
