original lyrics, Destiny's Child: Survivor

Survivor.

(Verse 1)
Now that you are out of my life,
I'm so much better,
You thought that I'd be weak without ya,
But I'm stronger,
You thought that I'd be broke without ya,
But I'm richer,
You thought that I'd be sad without ya,
I laugh harder,
You thought I wouldn't grow without ya,
Now I'm wiser,
You thought that I'd be helpless without ya,
But I'm smarter,
You thought that I'd be stressed without ya,
But I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without ya,
Sold nine million.

[Chorus]
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what),
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what),
I'm a survivor (what),
I'm gonna make it (what),
I will survive (what),
Keep on survivin' (what).

(Verse 2)
Thought I couldn't breathe without you,
I'm inhalin'
You thought I couldn't see without you,
Perfect vision,
You thought I couldn't last without ya,
But I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without ya,
But I'm livin'
Thought that I would fail without ya,
But I'm on top,
Though it would be over by now,
But it won't stop,
You thought that I would self-destruct,
But I'm still here,
Even in my years to come,
I'm still gon' be here.

(Bridge)
I'm wishin' you the best,
Pray that you are blessed,
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna blast you on the radio,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna lie on you or your family, yo,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna hate you in the magazine,
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna compromise my Christianity,
(I'm better than that)
You know I'm not gonna diss you on the Internet
Cause my momma told me better than that.

After all of the darkness and sadness,
Still comes happiness,
If I surround myself with positive things,
I'll gain prosperity.

Now that you are part of my life,
I'm so much better,
I thought that I'd be strong without you,
But I'm weaker,
I thought that I'd be rich without you,
But I'm poor,
I thought that I'd be glad without you,
I cry harder,
I thought I would grow more without you,
Now I'm foolish,
I thought that I'd be okay without you,
But I'm helpless,
I thought that I'd be blessed without you,
But life's cursin'
I thought you wouldn't take me back but,
My God's reversin'

You're my redeemer,
You're makin' me free-er
You're not gon' stop
You've got me seen' clearer
You're my redeemer,
You're gonna take me,
I am the clay,
Go on and make me,
You're my redeemer,
You're makin' me free-er
You're not gon' stop
You've got me seen' clearer
You're my redeemer,
You're gonna take me,
I am the clay,
Go on and make me.

I know I can't breathe without you,
No oxygen,
I know I couldn't see without you,
Blindly moving,
I know I couldn't last without you,
Barely lasting,
I know that I would die without you,
Barely living,
I know I would fall without you,
Always tripping,
My love would be over by now,
But yours won't stop,
My earthly mind would self destruct,
But since you're here,
All eternal years to come,
You're still gon' be here.

I'm wishin' for the rest,
That they'd also be blessed,
No contest, you're best, and bright me happiness,
(You're greater than all)
I just wanna praise you on the radio,
(You're greater than all)
I just wanna bring others to your family, too,
(You're greater than all)
I just wanna praise the God of everything,
(You're greater than all)
I'm not gonna compromise my Christianity,
(You're greater than all)
I know that God's gonna love us all in forever,
Cause my Bible told me Jesus loves me.

After all of the darkness and sadness,
Stil comes happiness,
If I surroud myself with your Word and love,
I'll gain eternity.
