At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side     
But then I spent so many nights             
Thinkin' 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 know for just one second you'd 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

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 feel like droppin' in
                                                               And just expect me to be free,
                                                                     Now I'm savin' all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' 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                                                        
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                                                                                    

 

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
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
