I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

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 thinking how you did me wrong

and i grew strong and i learned how to get along

and now your back, from outta 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 have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now cuz your not welcome anymore

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

did ya think i'd crumble

did ya think i'd crumble did ya think id lay down and die

oh no not i, i will survive

oh as long as i know how to love i know ill stay alive

ive got all my life to live ive got all my love to give

ill survive i will survie hey hey

(music)

it took all the strength i had not to fall apart

and tried so 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,

im not that chained up little person still in love with you

and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free

but now im saving all my loving for someone whos loving me

go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now cuz your not welcome anymore

werent you the one who tried to break me with goodbye

did ya think id crumble did ya think id lay down and die

oh no not i i will survive

oh as long as i know how to love i know ill stay alive

ive got all my life to live ive got all my love to give

ill survive..i will survive ohh go on now go

walk out the door just turn around now cuz your not welcome anymore

....continuing chorus......
