I Will Survive

CHORUS--> Speakin' up, so listen up
cause' I will get by
this is my diary,
this is my reality,
this is the story of my life
(I'll) keep goin' on,
keep stayin' strong,
when sugar and lemons won't mix right,
I'm just a girl tryin' to find my place in this world...
AND I WILL SURVIVE.
--
Some call it immaturity,
some call it electricity,
but I call it non-comformity
when I make people start laughing at me.
Cause' life is hard, life is pain
but have ya' seen a rainbow without rain?
Music can mean escape...
if you let it be.

Trust me when I say
I was dealt some bad cards
I've had my share of sleepless nights,
but I won't back down...

CHORUS

Your life is your masterpiece
make it anything you wanna' see
add some color, add design
don't tame it down just cause' it doesn't look right...

I've worn my heart on my sleeve and I let it control me
but I learned to say NO MORE
packed my things and walked out the door.

CHORUS

I will survive. I will survive.
(chorus overlap)
Don't be afraid---to survive.

Nonconformity...not used or done nearly enough. Sadly.
