Now that you're outta my life, I'm so much better
You thought that I'd be weak without ya, but I'm stronger
You thought that I'd be broke without ya, but I'm richer
You thought that I'd be sad without ya, I love harder

You thought I wouldn't grow without ya, now I'm wiser
You thought that I'd be helpless without ya but I'm smarter
You thought that I'd be stressed without ya, but I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without ya, sold nine million

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

You thought I couldn't breathe without ya, I'm inhaling
You thought I couldn't see without ya, perfect vision
You thought I couldn't last without ya, but I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without ya, but I'm livin'

Thought that I would fail without ya, but I'm on top
Thought it would be over by now, but it won't stop
Thought that I would self-destruct, but I'm still here
Even in my years to come, I'm still gon' be here

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

Wishin' you the best, pray that you are blessed
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness
I'm better than that, I'm not gon' blast you on the radio
I'm better than that! I'm not gon' lie on you and your family

I'm better than that, I'm not gon' hate on you in the magazines
I'm better than that, I'm not gon' compromise my Christianity
I'm better than that, you know I'm not gon' diss you on the internet
'Cause my momma taught me better than that

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

Oh, oh, oh

After all of the darkness and sadness
Still comes happiness
If I surround myself with positive things
I'll gain prosperity

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'

I'ma survivor, I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop, I'm gon' work harder
I'ma survivor, I'm gonna make it
I will survive, keep on survivin'
