I Will Survive LYRICS
INTRO
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 had 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'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) (Oh Oh) (I will survive)
INSTRU
            
It took all the strength
I had not to fall apart.
Kept 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.
And now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me.
