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 thinking 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've changed that stupid lock, I should've 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, cause you're not welcome anymore.
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt 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
And I, l will survive, I will survive....Hey, hey
It took all the strength I had, not to fall apart,
Just 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 dropping in, and just expect me to be free,
But now I'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's loving 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 now 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 will survive, I will survive...Oh (Pause & Repeat)
