♫ First I was afraid, I was petrified
00:22
♫ Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
00:26
♫ But then I spent so many nights
00:28
♫ Thinking how you did me wrong
00:30
♫ And I grew strong
00:32
♫ And I learned how to get along
00:34
♫ And so you're back [clapping]
00:37
♫ From outer space, from outer space
00:39
♫ I just walked in to find you here
00:41
♫ With that sad look upon your face
00:44
♫ I should have changed that stupid lock
00:46
♫ I should have made you leave your key
00:48
♫ If I'd known for just one second
00:50
♫ You'd be back to bother me
00:52
♫ Go on now, go, ooh [clapping]

♫ Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
01:05
♫ Do you think I'd crumble
01:07
♫ Did you think I'd lay down and die
01:08
♫ Oh no, not I, I will survive
01:12
♫ Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive
01:17
♫ I've got all my life to live
01:20
♫ And I've got all my love to give and I'll survive
01:24
♫ I will survive
01:28
