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

 

And so 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

Oh, as long as I know how to love

I know I’m still alive

 

I’ve got all my life to live

And 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

Just trying 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

Well, 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

And as long as I know how to love

I know I’m still alive

 

I’ve got all my life to live

And I’ve got all my love to give

And I’ll survive

I will survive, oh

 

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 crush 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

And as long as I know how to love

I know I’m still alive

 

I’ve got all my life to live

And I’ve got all my love to give

And I’ll survive

I, I, I will survive

 

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 crush 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

And as long as I know how to love

I know I’m still alive

 

I’ve got all my life to live

And I’ve got so much love to give

And I’ll survive

I will survive

I will survive!
