Look at us here todayLots of talking with nothing to sayAnd if I seem somewhat afraidI’m surviving, that’s all I amI’m surviving to be a better manI’m surviving, that’s my planJust survivingYesterday, I was sureBut today I don’t know anymoreThought I was brave till I sawMy frightened reflection in a dark corridorNow I’m surviving to be a better manI’m surviving with an emotional planI’m surviving, so please understandI’m surviving, survivingThere are millions of people out thereTrying to get by in a world that don’t carePeople smiling through clouds of despairProtecting the wounds until they repairThey’re surviving the best way they canThey are surviving every woman and manJust surviving with an emotion planSo keep survivingMaybe it’s my shattered prideThat’s why I get scared of emotional tiesDon’t let them in, otherwiseYou’ll smile like a foolBut you’ll be hurting insideSo I’m surviving through the insecurityI am surviving, I got hope inside of meSo I’m smiling through all the insanityI’m surviving, survivingI was moved by the way that you saidDon’t be afraid, I won’t leave you for deadYou took my soul and mixed up my headYou left me aliveYou should have killed me insteadNow I’m surviving, that’s all I amI’m surviving to be a better manI’m surviving, that’s my planI’m surviving, survivingSurviving
