This is the very first tablature I've submitted, so keep in mind that it's far 
from perfect. This is the whole song and it's the way I use to play it.
(It's possible to play the "intro" part through whole song, it's also possible to 
mix between the tabs and chords while playing.) Enjoy!

(Listen to the song, try to figure out how to play the tablatures I've written) -smile-





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...

                          (Beginners Rythm: Down,Down,Up,Up,Down,Up)

    Am              Dm(2)
...back from outer space
              G                                 C
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
              F                                    Dm
I should have changed my stupid lock I should have made you leave your key
         E               E               E           E
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

          Am              Dm(2)
Go on now go walk out the door
          G                             C                 
just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore
   F                             Dm
weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
              E               E              E
you think I'd crumble you think I'd lay down and die

           Am           Dm(2)
Oh no, not I, I will survive
   G                                  C
as long as i know how to love I know I will stay alive
         F                             Dm
I've got all my life to live, I've got all my love to give
            E           E
and I'll survive, I will survive

{Verse Two}
        Am                            Dm(2)
It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
            G                             C
kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
       F                                  Dm
and I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
          E                    E
I used to cry,   Now I hold my head up high
            Am          Dm(2)
and you see me somebody new
             G                                 C
I'm not that chained up little person still in love with you
           F                                  Dm
and so you felt like dropping in and just expect me to be free
        E                           E
now I'm saving all my loving for someone who's loving me

{Repeat Chorus}
