And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going
[Effie]
And I am telling you
Im 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
Im not living without you
I dont wanna be free
Im staying
Im staying
And you, and you
You’re gonna love me, oohh ooh mm mm
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
Im not waking up tomorrow morning and finding that there’s nobody there

Darling there’s no way
No, no, no, no way Im living without you
Im not living without you
You see there’s just no way, there’s no way

Tear down the mountains
Yell, scream, and shout like you can say what you want
Im not walking out
Stop all the rivers, push, strike, and kill
Im not gonna leave you
There’s no way I will

And I am telling you
Im not going
You’re the best man I’ll ever know
There’s no way I can ever, ever go
No, no, no, no way
No, no, no, no way Im living without you
Oh, Im not living without you, not living without you
I dont wanna be free
Im staying, Im 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

this song and listen (lyrics below) totally blew me away.. i caught dreamgirls in bangkok with tiger.

it was an interesting experience watching a movie in bangkok. firstly the commercials went on and on…. for like 30 mins? yawns…

secondly, they played the national anthem. o.O yeap they did. gave me a shock when everyone stood at attention and even the angmoh couple infront of us stood up. and there i was sitted down, folded legs and all… tiger and i scrambled and stood up too.

lol. i knew they respect their king a lot but not to the point of playing the anthem in cinemas. o.O

i really enjoyed the movie a lot. was blown away by eddie’s acting (for once, he aint a comedian!), beyonce’s beauty and jennifer’s powerful vocals.

i read that beyonce lost 9kg for this role and jennifer gained 9kg. o.O. i could feel her pain when she sang the above song. same goes for beyonce for the ‘listen’ song.

i cant stop raving about eddie’s role in the show. though he still had that insane grin in the show, i really enjoyed his singing and crazy antics in the show. it was quite sad to see him give up on himself. 🙁

i didnt expect jennifer to have such powerful vocals. erm, she was quite forgetable in american idol but in the movie… woah! powerful vocalssssssssssssssssssssssssss and her signature pout. lol. and beyonce just looked great in every part of the movie. though a tad too skinny. what happened to her curvaceous ass?

overall, an extremely good experience. i’ll give it 4.5 popcorns. 🙂 do listen to the soundtrack especially listen and and i am telling you. 🙂

Listen

Listen,
To the song here in my heart
A melody I’ve start
But can’t complete

Listen, to the sound from deep within
It’s only beginning
To find release

Oh,
the time has come
for my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside and turned
Into your own
all cause you won’t
Listen….

[Chorus]
Listen,
I am alone at a crossroads
I’m not at home, in my own home
And I tried and tried
To say whats on my mind
You should have known
Oh,
Now I’m done believin you
You don’t know what I’m feelin
I’m more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice
you gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own..

You should have listened
There is someone here inside
Someone I’d thought had died
Sooo long ago

Ohh I’m free now and my dreams to be heard
They will not be pushed aside on words
Into your arms
All cause you won’t
Listen…

[Chorus]

I don’t know where I belong
But i’ll be movin on
If you don’t….
If you won’t….

LISTEN!!!…
To the song here in my heart
A melody I’ve start
But I will complete

Oh,
Now i’m done believin you
You dont know what I’m feelin
I’m more than what, you made of me
I followed the voice, you think you gave to me
But now I gotta find, my own..
my ownn…
