"I Will Survive" as written by Stephen Alan Kipner and Clif Magness....
Draw a line in the sand
I dare you to cross it
You'd better think twice
For you to mix it up with me

No I won't turn down
I'll keep the fire burning
Hard as you try, you're never gonna stop the sound

You think you're shakin' my innocence
But you're wastin' my time
Cause you don't know who I am

I will survive
Defender of the faith
The power is alive
Defiant in your face
I will survive
I won't let it fall from grace

All around the world
There are true believers
No I'm not alone
You're never gonna move the stone

Rock & roll it's here to stay
It will never burn out
It's never gonna fade away

You think you're shakin' my innocence
But you're wasting time
Cause you don't know who I am

I will survive
Defender of the faith
The power is alive
Defiant in your face
I will survive
I won't let it fall from grace

    General CommentAnyone who has seen the movie "Gladiator" (the boxing movie, not the Russell Crowe movie) probably has heard this song. I don't think it's on any of their CDs, but it's on the soundtrack to the movie. Great song, it's a shame no one know's about it. The meaning is pretty straight forward though.
