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

But 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 had 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 you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I
I will survive
But as long as I know how to love
I know I will 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
Though i tried hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
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 fell 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 loving
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 crush me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
And as long as I know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I i i will survive

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 crush me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
And as long as I know how to love
I know I will 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
I will survive... !
