Intro:

E7

Verse 1:

Am DmAt first I was afraid, I was petrified,
G Cmaj7Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5But then I spent so many nights, thinking how you did me wrong,
Esus4 EAnd I grew strong; and I learned how to get along.
Am DmBut now you're back, from outer space,
G Cmaj7I just walked in, to find you here, with that sad look upon your face.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5I should have changed that stupid lock, I should've made you leave your key,
Esus4 EIf I had known for just one second, you'd be back to bother me.
Chorus 1:
Am DmGo on now, go; walk out the door;
G Cmaj7Just turn a-round now, 'cos you're not welcome anymore.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5 Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Esus4 EDid you think I'd crumble; did you think I'd lay down and die?
Am DmOh no, not I; I will sur-vive,
G Cmaj7Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5I've got all my life to live, and I've got all my love to give,
Esus4 E (Am)And I'll sur-vive, I will sur-vive, I will sur-vive...
Interlude: Am Dm G Cmaj7, Fmaj7 Bm7b5 Esus4 E Verse 2:
Am DmOnly the Lord could give me strength not to fall apart,
G Cmaj7Though I tried hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5And I spent oh, so many nights, just feeling sorry for myself,
Esus4 E7I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high.
Am DmAnd you see me; somebody new,
G Cmaj7I'm not that chained up little person, still in love with you.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5And so you felt like dropping in and just ex-pect me to be free,
Esus4 EWell, now I'm saving all my loving, for some-one who's loving me.
Chorus 2:
Am DmGo on now, go; walk out the door;
G Cmaj7Just turn a-round now, 'cos you're not welcome anymore.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5 Weren't you the one who tried to crush me with goodbye?
Esus4 EDid you think I'd crumble; did you think I'd lay down and die?
Am DmOh no, not I; I will sur-vive,
G Cmaj7And as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive.
Fmaj7 Bm7b5I've got all my life to live, and I've got all my love to give,
Esus4 E (Am)And I will survive, I-I-I will sur-vive.
