I will survive

Listen to Gloria Gaynor and try to complete the gaps in the lyrics with a gerund or an infinitive. Check with the video.

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept ________________ I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights ______________ how you did me wrong
I grew strong
I learned how ______________ along
and so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to _______________ you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you _____________ your key
If I had known for just one second
you'd be back _____________ me

Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried _________________ me with goodbye
you think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I, I will survive
as long as I know how __________________
I know I ‘m still alive
I've got all my life ________________
I've got all my love _________________
and I'll survive, I will survive

It took all the strength I had ________________ apart
kept ________ hard _____________________
the pieces of my broken heart
and I spent oh so many nights
just ____________________ sorry for myself
I used _________________
Now I hold my head up high
and you see me, somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
still in love with you
and so you felt like _______________________
and just expect me to ________________ free
now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me
Go on now go walk out the door
just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried ________________ me with goodbye
you think I'd crumble
you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
as long as I know how ________________
I know I ‘m still alive
I've got all my life __________________
I've got all my love ____________________
and I'll survive
I will survive
