Chords - Am Dm G C F B E E7

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 without that 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 
Well 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 whose lovin' me 
Well 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 crumple? 
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
