Gloria Gaynor
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 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've 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
Did I crumble
Did 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, and I'll survive
I will survive. Hey hey.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept trying' 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 so you felt 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 break me with goodbye?
Did I crumble?
Did 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, and I'll survive
I will survive. Oh.

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 goodbye?
Did I crumble?
Did 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, and I'll survive
I will survive. I will survive.
