Gloria Gaynor –  I Will Survive Lyrics

First I was afraid

I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live

without you by my side

But I spent so many nights

thinking how you did me wrong

I grew strong

I learned how to carry on

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 my 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

you think I’d crumble

you think I’d lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

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 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

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

now I’m saving all my loving

for someone who’s loving me
