"Survive" as written by and Walwyn....
I was huddled in a doorway
Fighting off a trance
With my bag pulled to my chest
She asked me if I was waiting for something
I said the answer one thousand times over was yes

Well, here I am
Or a shadow of me
Oh, but deep down inside
My heart runs free

I was used shoes salesman
I was working the graveyard shift
I was listening for the bell on the door when you walk in
I was living in the weeds somewhere
I was breathing through a straw in the swamp
I was gasping for air, wondering what it was for

But I've retired now
And she's better than me
Oh, but deep down inside
She makes the same mistakes as me

Well, sometimes love is all it's supposed to be

But it can break you
Remember, take care of your heart
And cry
Oh, but somehow we'll survive

For another day
By picking up our own feet
I was wandering around in the streets somewhere outside Eden
She came down to let me in
And then she left for the light
I was creeping through, through the brush and shadows
Man, I was scared for my life

But I am saved now
Somebody died for my sins
And I'm so glad it wasn't me
Sometimes lust is not such a crazy thing

But it can break you
Remember, take care of your heart
[?]
Oh, but somehow we'll survive

For another day
Oh, just for another day
Not by walking away
Nah, I'll stay

Sometimes love is all it's supposed to be

But it can break you
Remember, take care of your heart
And cry
Oh, but somehow we'll survive

For another day
Oh, just for another day
For [?] more days
