Gloria Gaynor - I will survive
Tekst en muziek: Freddie Perren en Dino Fekaris
(1979)






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 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
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
And 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



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 felt like droppin’ in and just expect me to be free
And now I’m savin’ all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me



Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now, ’cause your not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to break 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 and I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive
I will survive



Oh, 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 break 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
And I’ve got all my life to live and I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive
I will survive
