"I Will Survive"

by Gloria Gaynor

 

First I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong

And I grew strong and I learned how to get along

So now you're back from outer space

I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed that stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I'd have known for just one second

You'd be back to bother me

 

Go on now go

Walk out the door

Just turn around now

'Cause you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

Did you think I'd crumble, did you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

As long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

And I'll survive

I will survive

 

Only the Lord could give me strength not to fall apart

So I tried hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart

And I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry

But now I hold my head up high

And you see me

Somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you

And so you felt like dropping in

And just expect me to be free

Now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me

 

Go on now go

Walk out the door

Just turn around now

'Cause you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye

Did you think I'd crumble, did you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

As long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got so much love to give

And I'll survive

I will survive

I will survive
