  • And I am telling you I'm not going
    You're the best man I'll ever know
    There's no way I can ever go
    No, no, no, no way
    No, no, no, no way
    I'm living without you
    I'm not living without you
    I don't want to be free
    I'm staying, I'm staying
    And you, and you, you're gonna love me
    Oh, you're gonna love me

    And I am telling you I'm not going
    Even though the rough times are showing
    There's just no way, there's no way
    We're part of the same place
    We're part of the same time
    We both share the same blood
    We both have the same mind
    And time and time we have so much to share

    No, no, no,
    No, no, no way
    I'm not waking up tomorrow morning
    And finding that there's nobody there
    Darling, there's no way
    No, no, no, no way
    I'm living without you
    I'm not living without you
    You see, there's just no way
    There's no way

    Please don't go away from me
    Stay with me stay with me
    Stay, stay and hold me
    Stay, stay and hold me

    Please stay and hold me, Mr. Man
    Try it mister, try it mister
    I know, I know, I know you can

    Tear down the mountains
    Yell, scream and shout
    You can say what you want
    I'm not walking out
    Stop all the rivers
    Push, strike, and kill
    I'm not gonna leave you
    There's no way I will

    And I am telling you
    I'm not going
    You're the best man I'll ever know
    There's no way I could ever, ever go
    No, no, no, no way
    No, no, no, no way I'm living without you
    Oh, I'm not living without you,
    Not living without you
    I don't wanna be free
    I'm staying, I'm staying
    And you, and you, and you
    You're gonna love me

    You're gonna love me, yes you are
    Ooh ooh love me, ooh ooh ooh love me
    Love me, love me, love me, love me

    You're gonna love me Writer/s: Henry Krieger, Tom Eyen

  • Kent from Greensburg, PaThis would have been a perfect song for the late Whitney Houston's voice.
  • Gayle from Napa, CaI actually think jennifer Hudsons version is better although Jennifer Holliday is so powerful
