I Will Survive

At 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 had known for just one second
You'd be back to bother me
 
(Chorus)
Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome any more
Weren't you the one
Who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive!
Oh and 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
 
Hey, hey
 
It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept tryin' 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 feel like droppin' in
And just expect me to be free
Now I'm saving all my loving
For someone who is loving me
 
(Chorus x2)
 
It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept tryin' 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 feel like droppin' in
And just expect me to be free
Now I'm saving all my loving
For someone who is loving me
 
(Chorus)
 
Thanks!
