"I Survived You" as written by Jess Cates, Jeffrey B. Franzel and Ty Lacy....
I see the picture clear now
And 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

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
I couldn't help mistaking
That you could ever care for anyone
Anyone but yourself, hey-yeah
But you would have to have a conscience baby,
Good luck, I wish you well

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 hearts been torn in two
Cut and bruised from too many bitter endings
I'll be damned if I have thoughts of you
Rain on my new beginning

    General CommentClay is an amazing singer, I love him and his music, especially this song. I can relate to this song a lot. "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" says a lot about me, I've been hurt and I've cried over a lost love but I'm done and my feelings are fading,
