I Have Survived!

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never get through seeing so many brides
But then I spent so many nights
Dressed up and drinking beer
And now I cheer
Because I’m finally back here

And so I’m back, no more weddings
I can finally stop spending money and looking at wedding rings
I had more fun than I thought I would
I had more to eat than I probably should
But in the end I made it through better than I ever thought I could

My family’s great, my friends are too
But you have no idea
Just how hard it was all to do
No money and no sleep almost got the best of me
I thought I’d crumble
I thought I’d lay down and die
Oh no not I
I have survived
As soon as I walked in the door I knew I had arrived
Sure my kitten’s mad at me
And my apartment needs a clean
But I survived
I have survived
Hey Hey!

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Just trying hard to caffeinate my brain enough to start
And I spent oh so many nights in places that weren’t my home
I didn’t cry, and for that I hold my head up high
And you see me, still half asleep
Still wondering how my voice is raised above a feeble peep
And so you felt like dropping in to see how well I made it through
But all you found is this lame song, in an attempt to entertain you

My family’s great, my friends are too
But you have no idea
Just how hard it was all to do
No money and no sleep almost got the best of me
I thought I’d crumble
I thought I’d lay down and die
Oh no not I
I have survived
As soon as I walked in the door I knew I had arrived
Sure my kitten’s mad at me
And my apartment needs a clean
But I survived
I have survived
Hey Hey!

Comment by mikey

becki: thanks, it totally doesn’t fit in some places, but eh, I’m tired!

esther: yeah we do, unfortunately, all I can think about is sleep right now.
