Livin' On A Prayer - Album Version

Lyricist: Jon Bon Jovi/Desmond Child/Richard Sambora    Composer: Jon Bon Jovi/Desmond Child/Richard Sambora
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
Its 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 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 thats a lot
For love ,we'll give it a shot

Ohhh, we're halfway there
Ohhh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, and we'll make it, I swear
Ohhh, 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, it's tough
Gina dreams of running away
She cries in the nightime, Tommy whispers:
Baby it's okay, someday

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 thats a lot
For love ,we'll give it a shot

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

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

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

Ohhh, we're halfway there
Ohhh, livin' on a prayer
