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 out of 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.
Go on now, go, walk out that door!
Just turn around now‚
cause you’re not welcome any more.
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt (crush) me with goodbye?
Did I crumble
Did I lay down and die
Oh no, not I! I will survive!
Oh and as long as I know how to love I know I 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!
Go on now…
