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 now your back, from outta 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 your not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did ya think I'd crumble
Did ya think I'd crumble did ya 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
Ive got all my life to live I've got all my love to give
Ill survive I will survie hey hey
(music)
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
And tried so 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,
Im 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
But now I'm saving all my loving for someone whos loving me
Go on now go walk out the door
Just turn around now 'cause your not welcome anymore
Werent you the one who tried to break me with goodbye
Did ya think I'd crumble did ya 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
Ive got all my life to live I've got all my love to give
Ill survive..i will survive ohh go on now go
Walk out the door just turn around now 'cause your not welcome anymore
....continuing chorus......
