When you're always chasing rainbows
And you might not know which way the wind blows
You say, your lucky day is comin'
Until that day you're just slummin'

So you wait and you wait but the signal don't change
Watching TV daily there is no sign
You read your horoscope
But ah, it would appear there is no hope

So what? Who cares?
Gotta put a handle on your fear
A man comes and a man goes
And he always leaves alone

Only the strong survive
You better wake up from that fantasy, yeah
It's time to open your eyes
Don't be afraid to see what you might see, yeah

The years roll by and the you're feeling cheated
And you fight back hard but you know you're defeated
They let your hair grow, get a sports car
But you know, you won't go so far

It's too bad, it's real sad
You lost the best thing you ever had
You had some hope, you had the youth
And now you'll never know the truth

Only the strong survive
You better wake up from that fantasy, yeah
I think it's time to open your eyes
Don't be afraid to see what you might see, yeah

Oh, only the strong survive
Don't ever let it get you down, down, down, down, yeah
Oh, I can't sympathize
If you expect to stick around, 'round, 'round, 'round, yeah

So what? Who cares?
Better put a handle on your fear
A man comes and a man goes
And he always leaves alone

Only the strong survive
You better wake up from that fantasy, yeah
I think it's time you opened your eyes
Don't be afraid to see what you might see, yeah

They say now, only the strong survive
Don't ever let it get you down, down, down, down, yeah
I think it's time to open your eyes
If you expect to stick around, 'round, 'round, 'round, yeah

Only, only strong survive
You better wake up from that fantasy, yeah
I think it's time that you opened your eyes
Don't be afraid to see what you might see, yeah

Only, only strong survive
