Trish, did I get the words right?

As my friend Tom says, I’m going through all the emotional stages of this break-up! Here’s the perfect song to express where I am today:

as sung by Gloria Gaynor

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
without you by my side
But I spent so many nights
thinking how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
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 my stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had 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
you think I’d crumble
you think I’d lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as i know how to love
I know I will 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
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
now I’m saving all my loving
for someone who’s loving me

Have I mentioned how awesome my friends (who are really more like family) have been through all this? Cathy, Skip, Brian & Kelly, Matt, Kristina, Frank, Ken, Connie & her brother Saucy Joe, Tom, Kelly, Trish, my mom & dad…the list goes on. How would I have gotten through any of this without your daily vigil? I’m so blessed! Thanks!

  1. hehe, sorry ur goin through all this C!! I am available for drinking purposes and partying if you wanna get your mind off of things….teehee…

  2. Thanks, Ed. I’m not sure that drinking is the way I’m wanting to get through this but it’s awfully nice of you to keep me in mind. 😉

  3. Sorry C about the phone battery dying while trying help you out earlier…I hope what I told you was enough to get you going. I was going to call ya back on my house phone but realzied your number was on the “dead” cell phone – hehehehe ;o)

  4. Yeah, but “I Will Survive” is one of the emotional stages of an episode of Will and Grace. Just kidding. You go girl. You’re strong and you ain’t no fool. I’m rootin’ for ya.
