I Will Survive lyrics

Album: Greatest Hits

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking 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 I learned how to get along
And so 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 made you leave your key
If I'd known for just one second you'd be 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
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die

Oh no not I
I will survive
Oh 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
I'll survive
I will survive
Hey, hey!

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 o-so many nights just feelin 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 so you felt like droppin in and just expect me to be free
Well now I'm saving 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 break me with good-bye,
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no not I

I will survive
Oh 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
I'll survive
I will survive

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 break me with Good-bye,
You think I'd crumble
You think I'd lay down and die
Oh no not I

I will survive
Oh 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
I'll survive
I will survive
I will survive
