Cake – I will survive

At first I was afraid

I was petrified

I kept thinking I could never live without you

By my side

But then I spent so many nights

Just thinking how you’ve done me wrong

I grew strong

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 my fucking lock

I would have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second

You’d be back to bother me

 

Oh now go,

Walk out the door

Just turn around

Now, you’re not welcome anymore

Weren’t you the one

Who tried to break me with desire?

Did you think I’d crumble?

Did you think I’d lay down and die?

 

Oh not I,

I will survive

Yeah

As Long as I know how to love,

I know I’ll be alive

I’ve got all my life to live

I’ve got all my love to give

I will survive,

I will survive

Yeah, yeah

It took all the strength I had

Just not to fall apart

I’m 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

With somebody new

I’m not that stupid little person

Still in love with you

And so you thought you’d just drop by

And you expect me to be free

But now I’m saving all my lovin’

For someone who’s lovin’ me

Oh now go,

Walk out the door

Just turn around

Now, you’re not welcome anymore

Weren’t you the one

Who tried to break me with desire?

Did you think I’d crumble?

Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh not I,

I will survive

Yeah

As long as I know how to love,

I know I’ll be alive

I’ve got all my life to live

I’ve got all my love to give

I will survive,

I will survive

Yeah, yeah
