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
I grew strong, and I learned how to get along.
So now you're back from out of 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 have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me.
Oh no now go, walk out the door
Just turn around now, you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with your 'bye'?
Did you think I'd crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh not I, I will survive
And as long as I know how to love I know I'll be 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, hey hey.
Only the Lord could give me the strength not to fall apart
So I tried 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 with somebody new
I'm not that stupid little person still in love with you
And so you thought like dropping in and you expect me to be free
But now I'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me.
