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 so you're back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
You know, I should have changed that lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother Me

Chorus:
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 you think I'd crumble?
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
No, Lord, not I, I will survive
For as long as I know how to love,
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all My life to live
And I've got all My love to give
And I'll survive; I will survive

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 dropping in and just expect Me to be free
For now I'm saving all my true love for the Lord who's loving Me

Repeat Chorus

I will survive

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 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
For now I'm saving all my sweet love for my God who's loving me

Repeat Chorus and fade
