  • 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 now 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 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
    Do you think I'd 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 girl who's 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...
