Phil Collins – Survivors lyrics

'... I never meant to break your heart, please forgive me. '

No I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
Please forgive me

I never meant to break your heart
I'd give my last breath before I do
Please forgive me

No I never meant to hold you down
I never meant to break your heart
Somehow, somehow
We are survivors

No I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
Here we are standing here
Survivors in the night

No I never meant to break your heart
I'll always be here for you
Here's my word, take my hand
Survivors in the night

No I never meant to let you down
I'd give my last breath before I do
All I ever wanted was to be right here
Survivors in the night

When all is said and done
We'll find a way
To put all this behind us
We'll find some way
Cause you know that I won't be leaving
Yes I'm here and I won't be leaving

No I never meant to cause you pain
No I never meant to hurt you
All I want to do now, is to try my best
Survivors in the night

When all is said and done
We'll find someday
We can forget all this
Somehow, some way

And as long as I'm here
There'll be no worries any more
And all these promises I'm making now
I'll hold each day

So don't ever. Don't ever, don't forget
That I never, never meant to break your heart
All I ever wanted was to stand beside you
Survivors in the night

We are survivors in the night
