ARETHA FRANKLIN

ARETHA FRANKLIN - I WILL SURVIVE

rate me

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 just 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 you're face,

I should have changed that stupid lock,

I should have made leave your key,

If I'd 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 goodbyes

Do you think I'd crumble?

Do 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 will 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'll 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

But now I'm saving all my lovin'

For someone who's lovin' 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 break me with goodbye?

Did you I 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

I will survive

I will survive

Hey hey!
