I Will Survive Lyrics

 
 

I Will Survive lyrics speak of female empowerment and the strength of those who have gone through a bad breakup in a relationship. Made popular by Gloria Gaynor as a disco song in 1979, the I Will Survive lyrics were written by Dino Fekaris and Freddie Perren.

In 1980, I Will Survive won the Grammy Award for Best Disco Recording, the only year that this kind of award was given. Though a disco song with a disco beat and highly conducive to dance, the I Will Survive lyrics provide a depth of meaning and story not present in most disco songs.


I Will Survive Lyrics

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
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 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
you think I'd crumble
you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will 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

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
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
now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me
