I was sourcing Napster for some Selena songs for a CH friend from Europe when I came upon her rendition of "I will survive". It struck me as the perfect CH Theme song, so I found the lyrics to post here.
(With apologies to the real lyricist for my liberties)
At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin I could never live cause you were at my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong, and I learned how to get along
And so you're back, from outer space
I just woke up to find you here, with that mean look upon your face
I should've changed that stupid lock, I should've made you leave your key
If I'd have 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 in my eye,
You think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die.
Oh, no not I, I will survive,
Oh as long as I know how to fight, I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my fight to give
And I, I will survive, I will survive....Hey, hey
It took all the strength I had, just to save myself,
Just trying hard to mend the pieces of my shattered health,
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 fear of you.
And so you felt like dropping in, and just expect me to be free,
But now I'm saving all my evenings for someone who's loving 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 stab me in my eye,
You think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die,
Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh as long as I now how to fight, I know I'll stay alive,
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my fight to give,
I will survive, I will survive...Oh
Don't expect CarlD to record it - disco ain't exactly his style :-)
