This song was co-written by Seth Moseley, the lead vocalist of Christian rock band Me in Motion. Moseley also co-penned another of Sovereign
's tracks, "Miracle." Michael recalled to us
: "We were working on another song called 'Miracle,' which is Cut No. 3 on the album. And just before I left, I said, 'Hey, you got anything? You're a writer. You got anything on your computer?' And he pulled up this track , which is 'You Won't Let Go,' and he did that melody and I sort of pulled this acoustic guitar off it, off his wall and Seth and just started writing this melody on the guitar over that track."
"And then I ended up writing the thing in 10 minutes or whatever, and I looked at him. I said, 'Bro'" I said, 'I think we have something here.'"
