BON JOVI


Livin' On A Prayer Lyrics

Once upon a time
Not so long ago
Tommy used to work on the docks
Unions been on strike
He's down on his luck... it's tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day

Working for her man, she brings home her pay
For love - for love
She says we've got to hold on to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference
If we make it or not

We've got each other and that's a lot
For love - well give it a shot
Whooah, we're half way there
WOOOOAH Livin on a prayer

Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
WOAAAAAH Livin on a prayer
Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in what he used making talk so tough - it's tough
Gina dreams of running away
She cries in the night

Tommy whispers baby it's okay, someday
We've got to hold on to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference
If we make it or not
We've got each other and that's a lot

For love - we'll give it a shot
Whooah, we're half way there
WOOAAAAAH Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear

WOAAAAAH Livin on a prayer
Living on a prayer

We've got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got
Whooah, we're half way there
WOOOOOOAH Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
WOOOOOOAH Livin on a prayer
Whooah, we're half way there
WOOOOOOAH Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
WOOOOOOAH Livin on a prayer
Whooah, we're half way there
WOOOOOOAH Livin on a prayer
