Marq Torien – 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, oh, so tough
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man, she brings home her pay for love, oh, for love

She says, “We got to hold on to what we've got
'Cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We got each other and that's a lot for love
We'll give it a shot”

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

Tommy got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in what he used to make it talk so tough, oh, so tough
Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers, “Baby it's okay, someday”

We got to hold on to what we've got
'Cause it doesn't make a difference if we make it or not
We got each other and that's a lot for love
We'll give it a shot

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

Whoah, we got to hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got

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

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

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