​You Never Let Go

This song is by Gowan and appears on the album ...But You Can Call Me Larry (1993).

It I recall the day I met you
We were fifteen years old
We stood there lined up in the school yard
On a winter's day cold
You looked at me like you could see straight through
The teachers said I should stay clear of you

Strong rivers would flow
Big winds soon would blow
But one thing I know
They never could change you
You never let go

We followed footpaths in the forest
To see what we'd find
You told me all your darkest secrets
And I told you mine
The words you spoke that day were poetry
And I saw in you what no one else could see

Strong rivers would flow
Big winds soon would blow
But one thing I know
They never could change you
You never let go

You wouldn't let them drag you under
Or steal that hunger from your eyes
And I knew even then, when I met you again
There'd be no compromise

And finally today I saw you for the first time in years
I thought about your bitter rivals
How they've all disappeared
But in your eyes I see that same old flame
That brilliant spirit never to be tamed...
It still remains

Strong rivers would flow
Big winds soon would blow
But one thing I know
They never could change you
You never let go
And you never let go
