Bon Jovi: Livin' On A Prayer

LIVIN' ON A PRAYER
/Bon Jovi/

Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's 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, we'll give it a shot'

[Chorus:]
Whoah, we're half way there
Whoah, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear
Whoah, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in
What he used to make it talk
So tough, it's tough
Gina dreams of running away
When 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

[Chorus]

We've got to hold on
Ready or not
You live for the fight
When that's all that you've got

[Chorus] [3x]
