The song, composed and produced by Freddie Pearn and Dino Faresis, was released in 1978 with the voice of Gloria Ginore. Though the song was recorded as a “B-side” song with a single “Successor”, it was unpredictably appealing to the general public and the DJs and was on the list of the top 100 songs of 1978!
Grammy Hall of Fame, Grammy Award for Best Disco Records.
The song “I’m alive” is a completely feminine song, and a lot of female singer-songwriters are rebranding and it’s interesting that even a male singer has not performed it again!
This song was chosen as the official anthem of the 1998 Football World Cup in France. The theme of the song is performed with the same melody and tuneup in more than 20 different languages, including Arabic.
The line of narrative is very straightforward and tells the story of a woman who wants to defeat an emotional relationship that she has been able to overcome, and now she does not want to accept her former lover.
I heard this song for the first time on a comic video clip at the top of the song, the chandelier on the reader’s head! It was time for the file to open. I could find this song, and I just heard about it for almost a minute many times …

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 learned 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
Cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one, who tried to hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d 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, hey, hey
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 felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
But now I’m saving all my loving 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 hurt me with goodbye?
Did you think I’d 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, hey, hey
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 with goodbye?
Did you think I’d 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
‘ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, I will survive
