Tony Clifton – I Will Survive lyrics

First I was afraid, I was putrefied
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 to get along

And now you're back from outer 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 asked you for the key
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Don't turn around now, you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one that tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble, did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no, not I, I will survive
As long as I know how to love, I know I will stay and live
I got all my life to live, I got all my love to give
I will survive, I will survive, I will survive, I, I will survive

I will survive
I will survive
I will survive
I will survive
