Gloria Gainor

'I will survive'

At first I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights

Thinkin' how you did me wrong

And I grew strong and now how to get alone

And so you're back from outer space

I just walked in to find 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've known for just one second you'd back to bother me

 

Go on now, go walk out the door

Just turn around now cause you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

Did you think I crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no, not I will survive

Oh for as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give and I will survive

I will survive...

 

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart

Kept tryin 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

I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you

And now you feel like droppin in and just expect me to be free

Now I'm savin all my lovin for someone who's lovin me

 

Go on now, go walk out the door

Just turn around now cause you're not welcome anymore

Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye

Did you think I crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die?

Oh no, not I will survive

Oh for as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give and I will survive

I will survive...
