Lyrics and Music by Frederick J. Perren and Dino Fekaris

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 have 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 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 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 feel like droppin' in
And you expect me to be free.
Now I'm savin' all my lovin'
For someone who's lovin' me.

     I'll survive.
