Skeeter Davis – Instinct For Survival lyrics

Believe me I ain't sayin' this just to hurt your pride
But I can live without you without breaking up inside
I just can't stay here with you now the way you're doing me wrong
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.

It's hard for me to understand just what you're searchin' for
And why the touch that thrilled you doesn't move you anymore
You're like the friends you're runnin' with and I just don't belong
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.

There's something deep inside of me that's begging me to leave
And I can't stop this feeling without killing part of me.

If I sound cold and uncaring well I don't mean to be
You know the love I have for you is such a part of me
But before I'll let you ruin my life I'll pack up and be gone
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.

A little too strong...
