Survivor – 1980s Rock Band

Survivor’s best 1980s songs and their song lyrics.

Survivor are a 80s rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan. The band achieved its best success in the 1980s, producing many singles. The band is best-known for its double-platinum-certified 1982 hit “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme song for the 1982 motion picture Rocky III; that single spent six weeks at number one in the US.

Eye of the Tiger – Survivor

Risin’ up, back on the street Did my time, took my chances Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast You change your passion for glory Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past You must fight just to keep them alive

CHORUS: It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the thrill of the fight Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night And he’s watchin’ us all in the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry They stack the odds ’til we take to the street For we kill with the skill to survive

CHORUS

Risin’ up, straight to the top Have the guts, got the glory Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop Just a man and his will to survive

CHORUS

The eye of the tiger…


The Search is Over – Survivor

How can I convince you what you see is real Who am I to blame you for doubting what you feel I was always reachin’, you were just a girl I knew I took for granted the friend I have in you

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment Taking on the world, that was just my style Now I look into your eyes I can see forever, the search is over You were with me all the while

Can we last forever, will we fall apart At times it’s so confusing, these questions of the heart You followed me through changes and patiently you’d wait Till I came to my senses through some miracle of fate

I was living for a dream, loving for a moment Taking on the world, that was just my style Now I look into your eyes I can see forever, the search is over You were with me all the while

Now the miles stretch out behind me Loves that I have lost Broken hearts lie victims of the game Then good luck it finally struck Like lightning from the blue Every highway leading me back to you

Now at last I hold you, now all is said and done The search has come full circle Our destinies are one So if you ever loved me Show me that you give a damn You’ll know for certain The man I really am
