At first I was afraid, I was petrified,
kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side.
But then, I spent so many nights thinkin' 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 yet known for just a second you'd be back to bother me.
Go on, now go, walk out the door,
just turn round 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.
For 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.
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart,
kept tryin' hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart.
And I spent, oh, so many nights just feelin' 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 felt like droppin' in and just expect me to be free.
Well, now I'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me.
Go on, now go...
