Letra fiel al original
At first I was afraid, I was petrified, Kept thinkink I could never live Without you by my side. But then I spent so many nights Thinkink 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. 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. 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 hurt me with goodbye? Did I crumble? Did I’d lay down and die? 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 to live, I’ve got all my love to give And I’ll survive, I will survive. Hey, hey. 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 feel like dropping in And you expect me to be free. Now I’m saving all my loving For someone who’s loving me. Chorus 2 times I’ll survive.
