"They Won't 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 the bleeding hearts
The sorrows to impart
Were right here from the start
And 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, ah
Gone from painful cries
Away from saddened eyes
Along with him I'll bide
And they won't go when I go

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Big men feeling small
Weak ones standing tall
I will watch them fall
'Cause 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 will give, he will give, he will give, oh yeah

The deed a man will be
Far away from me
And my soul will be free
And 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
'Cause they won't go when I go
And I'll go
Where I'll go
No one can keep me
From my destiny, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh
They won't go when I go
