(Verse One)
Am Dm
First I was afraid, I was petrified
G G7 Cmaj7
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
But I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
Esus E Esus E
I grew strong, I learned how to carry on
Am Dm
and so you’re back from outer space
G G7 Cmaj7
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
I should have changed my stupid lock I should have made you leave your key
Esus E Esus E
If I had known for just one second you’d be back to bother me

(Chorus)
Am Dm
Go on now go walk out the door
G G7 Cmaj7
just turn around now ’cause you’re not welcome anymore
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Esus E Esus E
you think I’d crumble you think I’d lay down and die

Am Dm
Oh no, not I, I will survive
G G7 Cmaj7
as long as i know how to love I know I will stay alive
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give
Esus E Esus E
and I’ll survive, I will survive

(Verse Two)
Am Dm
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
G G7 Cmaj7
kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
and I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
Esus E Esus E
I used to cry, Now I hold my head up high
Am Dm
and you see me somebody new
G G7 Cmaj7
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you
Fmaj7 Bm7(5)
and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
Esus E Esus E
now I’m saving all my loving for someone who’s loving me

(Repeat Chorus)
