Aiken, Clay - I Survived You Lyrics




I see the picture clear now, the fog has lifted.
The wool you tried to pull over my eyes was clever.
Yeah you're gifted.
But you forgot to dot some I's, and cross some T's along the way.
I'm better now despite you baby.
I'm stronger these days.
Stronger.

[Chorus:]
I survived the crash.
Survived the burn.
Survived the worst, yeah baby, but I learned.
Survived the lies.
Survived the blues.
Almost killed me, but I survived the truth.
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed.
I survived you.

I can look in the mirror now.
It's been a slow awakening.
Haunted by a heart full of you, couldn't help mistaking.
That you could ever care for anyone.
Anyone but yourself. Hey.
But you would have to have a conscience baby.
Good luck I wish you well.

[Chorus]
I survived the crash.
Survived the burn.
Survived the worst, yeah baby, but I learned.
Survived the lies.
Survived the blues.
Almost killed me, but I survived the truth.
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed.
I survived you.

This heart has been torn in two.
Cut and bruised.
With too many bitter endings.
I'll be damned if I have thoughts of you
Rain on my new beginning.

[Chorus]
I survived the crash.
Survived the burn.
Survived the worst, yeah baby, but I learned.
Survived the lies.
Survived the blues.
Almost killed me, but I survived the truth.
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed.

I survived the crash.
Survived the burn.
Survived the worst, yeah baby, but I learned.
Survived the lies.
Survived the blues.
Almost killed me, but I survived the truth.
And when you wrote me off like I was doomed.
I survived you.

    I love this song....and yes, I did survive the heartache I went through

    Edelweiss Montera

    You and all that have been through some rough times and have survived are stronger!

  7. Lauren Abraham

    I know this seems to be about relationships, but I can relate this to my ex best friend and I, her and I have always had really stupid fights and when we fight she calls me worthless, stupid, an ugly fuck, etc. When I listen to this song I think how I survived without her before and can survive without her now, I survived her lies, and everything like that and I can finally say that I survived everything she put me through

  8. DeEtta Leaton

    I shared this on Facebook to my ex after he cheated and I kicked him out. It was my epic screw you to him. God that felt good.

    Bree Garrett

    DeEtta Leaton that's kind of what my ex did and I just couldn't do it. And after 4 months I finally found out on Thanksgiving he was cheating on me.
