I Will Survive

Gloria Gaynor and her song: I will survive, recorded in October 1978, is my first association to this Word Prompt. The song has been following me all my life – and it is a kind of respect to the song to let it be here 🙂 It did help me survive 😉

However, I also like this version made by Hermes House Band., a Dutch pop band.

And if you want another version, … listen American alternative band Cake 🙂

Angry Birds and Demi Lovato 🙂

“I Will Survive”

At first I was afraid, I was petrified,
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking 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.
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 felt like dropping in,
And just expect me to be free.
And now I’m saving all my loving for someone who’s loving me.

[2x]
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.
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.
