Stevie Wonder is set to sing "Never Dreamed You'd Leave in Summer," from his 1971 album Where I'm Coming From, at the Jackson memorial. The song, which was also featured in Janet Jackson's movie Poetic Justice, is a ballad whose lyrics are eerily appropriate:

I never dreamed you'd leave in summer I thought you would go then come back home I thought the cold would leave by summer But my quiet nights will be spent alone

You said there would be warm love in springtime That was when you started to be cold I never dreamed you'd leave in summer But now I find myself all alone

You said then you'd be the life in autumn Said you'd be the one to see the way I never dreamed you'd leave in summer But now I find my love has gone away



Why didn't you stay?
