I WILL SURVIVE by Gloria Gayner
At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept �(think), I could never��(live) without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights �(think), how you did me wrong
And I grew strong and I learned how �(get along)
And so you're back from outer space
I just walked in �(find) you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have��(change) that stupid lock
I should have��(make) you��(leave) your key
If I'd 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 �(hurt) me with goodbye?
Did you think I �(crumble)? Did you think I �(lay down) and die?

CHORUS:

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 �(live), I've got all my love �(give)
And I'll survive, I will survive, hey, hey

It took all the strength I had �(not/fall apart)

Kept��(try) hard �(mend) the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent, oh, so many nights just��(feel) sorry for myself
I used �(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 �(drop in) and just expect me �(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 �(break) me with goodbye
Did you think I �(crumble)? Did you think I �(lay down) and die?

CHORUS:

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 �(live), I've got all my love �(give)
And I'll survive, I will survive, hey, hey
