Skeeter Davis — Instinct For Survival lyrics

Believe me I ain't sayin' this just to hurt your pride
But I can live without you without breaking up inside
I just can't stay here with you now the way you're doing me wrong
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/skeeter-davis-instinct-for-survival-lyrics.html ]
It's hard for me to understand just what you're searchin' for
And why the touch that thrilled you doesn't move you anymore
You're like the friends you're runnin' with and I just don't belong
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.

There's something deep inside of me that's begging me to leave
And I can't stop this feeling without killing part of me.

If I sound cold and uncaring well I don't mean to be
You know the love I have for you is such a part of me
But before I'll let you ruin my life I'll pack up and be gone
Guess my instinct for survival is a little too strong a little too strong.

A little too strong...
