The song has been written by Joo Yeon Jeong and Seongjin Hwang, while being composed by high seAson and Seonmin Paik. It is of the ballad genre as it showcases an emotional side to the artist.
“Never Let You Go” is a song that mourns the loss of one’s love. It reminisces about this lost love and expresses the regret one feels for not appreciating it when having the chance to do so. These feelings are seen in lyrics such as,
“As far as I know because we were always together,
And too young, I didn’t know just how precious you were,
If I meet you again, I will take your hand,
I will tell you, ‘I’ll never let you go.'”AleXa – Never Let You Go
AleXa’s soft and emotive vocals along with the sound of the piano and guitar in the background, lend to the overall atmosphere of the song, as well as expressing its meaning beautifully.
The music video of the song shows AleXa walking amongst nature during the cold winters as she reminisces the times spent together with her lover. The video creates a sombre mood, complimenting the song well.
