"They won't go when I go" as written by and Stevie/wright Wonder....
No more lying friends
Wanting tragic ends
Though they do pretend
They won't go when I go

All those bleeding hearts
With sorrows to impart
Right here from the start
They won't go when I go

And I'll go where I've longed
To go so long
Away from tears
Ah, ah, ah, ah, oh, oh, oh
Gone from painful cries
Away from saddened eyes
Along with him I'll bide
And they won't go when I go

Oh, ah, oh, ah, oh, oh

Big men feeling small
Weak ones standing tall
And I will watch them fall
They won't go when I go
And I'll go where I've longed
To go so long
Away from tears
Unclean minds mislead the pure
The innocent will leave for sure
For them there is a resting place
People sinning just for fun
They will never see the sun
For they can never show their faces
There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who will take more than he will give
He'll give, he'll give
He ain't hardly gonna give, oh yeah

The greed of man will be
Far away from me
My soul will be free
They won't go when I go
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Since my soul conceived
All that I believe
The kingdom I will see
They won't go when I go
And I'll go
Where I'll go, no one can keep me from my destiny, yeah

    General CommentI fell inlove with song not long ago. Both George Michael's and Stevie Wonder's version is breathtaking and heartbreaking. I love discovering songs that speak to you in that speciel way. For me, this is one of those songs.
