中文歌詞 – 西洋歌曲英漢對照

At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learn how to get along
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 that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I’d known for just one second you’d be back to bother me

*Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
(Cos) You’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did I crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die
Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I’ll 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 but 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 feel like dropping in
And just expect me to be free
Now I’m saving all my loving for someone who’s loving me
