No, I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
Please forgive me

No, I never meant to break your heart
I'd give my last breath before I do
Please forgive me

No, I never meant to hold you down
I never meant to break your heart
Somehow, somehow we are survivors

No, I never meant to hold you back
I never meant to turn away
Here we are standing here
Survivors in the night
Survivors in the night

No, I never meant to break your heart
I'll always be here for you
Here's my word, take my hand
Survivors in the night
Survivors in the night
Survivors in the night

No, I never meant to let you down
I'd give my last breath before I do
All I ever wanted was to be right here
Survivors in the night
Survivors in the night
Survivors in the night

When all is said and done, we'll find a way
To put all this behind us, we'll find some way
'Cause you know that I won't be leaving
Yes, I'm here and I won't be leaving

No, I never meant to cause you pain
No, I never meant to hurt you
All I want to do now is to try my best
Survivors in the night
We are survivors in the night

When all is said and done, we'll find someday
We can forget all this, somehow, some way
And as long as I'm here there'll be no worries any more
And all these promises I'm making now
I'll hold each day

So don't ever, don't ever, don't forget
That I never, never meant to break your heart
All I ever wanted was to stand beside you
Survivors in the night
We are survivors in the night

We are survivors
Yes, we are survivors
We are survivors
Survivors
Yes, we are survivors
Yes, we are survivors

Please forgive me
Please forgive me
Yes, we are survivors
We are survivors
Survivors
Survivors

Please forgive me
Please forgive me
Please forgive me, yeah
Survivors
Yes, we are survivors
Yes, we are survivors
