Bon Jovi – Prayer '94 lyrics

[Once upon a time, not so long ago]

Tommy used to work on the docks
The union went 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 gotta 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

Whoa, we're halfway there
Whoa, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's threw his six-string in hock
Now he's holding in
What he used to make talk so tough
So tough

Gina dreams of running away
[Yes, she does]
She cries every night
Tommy whispers, "Baby, it's okay... someday"

We've gotta hold on to what we've got
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

Whoa, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

We're livin' on a prayer

We've gotta hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got
Whoa

And I say, whoa, we're halfway there
Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

And oh, we're halfway there
Whoa, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear
Oh, livin' on a prayer

Tommy used to work on the docks
The union went on strike
He's down on his luck, it's tough
Hey Tommy, it's tough
