And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going
Jennifer Hudson Lyrics


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, there's 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've had 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, ah, yeah
Stay, stay and hold me, ooh

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

Tear down the mountain
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, there's no way
No, no, no, no way I'm living without you
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, oh yeah
You're gonna love me, yes, you are
Yes, you are

Ohh, love me, love me
Love me, love
You're gonna love
Me

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, there's no way
No, no, no, no way I'm living without you
I'm not living without you
I don't wanna be free
I'm staying, I'm staying
And you, and you
You're gonna love me
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've had so much to see and
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 Mr., try it Mr.
I know, I know, I know you can

Tear down the mountains
Yell, scream and shout like 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
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, yes you are
Love me, love me
Love me, love me, love
You're gonna love me

That has song has to be the hardest song in life to sing. Her voice was beyond amazing. Oscar well deserved.

Take me as I am 💞

😂😂😂😂

Best voice ever, you always make cry, love u 😘

@Xi DIAMOND the character has to sing and act. Are you going to take away Liza Minelli’s Oscar for “Cabaret”? How about Barbra Streisand’s Oscar for “Funny Girl”? Those are all roles where the actor has to act and sing. I know I couldn’t do this. Can you?

Actually Emotions by Mariah Carey is easily the hardest song ever. Only a handful of people are even able to COVER that song. But this can be a 2nd.

Jennifer also fun fact did deserve the Oscar. You don't win an oscar for singing. Even Best Original Song only goes to Composers and Songwriters. Jennifer is the only actress with Helen Mirren who won an acting Oscar for a film performance in 2006. Jennifer's acting is subtle, nuanced, powerful, heartbreaking, and emotional. For context, the only person who have ever been credited this song is the original Jennifer Holiday herself. So when Hudson took this role she was fighting an uphill battle where the critics would have been ready to attack and destroy her career before it ever started. However, it is because of the power of her acting (demonstrated even when singing) that made all the critics and fans adore, praise, and payed the way for Hudson to be able to be in the position where she stands side by side with Holliday herself. So long story short, yes she deserved the oscar, yes she deserved it for acting, yes the Jennifer's are legends, and yes this song will make you cry.

Before she sings the last word of the song, "me," she takes a massive gasp of air so that she can give it her absolute ALL to belt out her final plea. I love how that small moment is captured in the recording and left intact..it gives me chills every single time. This is, hands-down, my favorite vocal performance of all time.

Lucy Loo

Have a look at Sarah Ikumu's version - a contestant on BGT.

Fallon Johnson

10000% agree. She murdered this song and her rendition is unbelievable.

Lady Luck

It's defeat. I lost everything because I loved this hard as well. She is plain old defeated.
