Livin’ On A Prayer Lyrics – Bon Jovi

[Intro]
Once upon a time, not so long ago

[Verse 1]
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, mmm, for love

[Pre-Chorus]
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]
Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it, I swear
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer

[Verse 2]
Tommy’s got his six-string in hock, now he’s holding in
What he used to make it talk so tough, ooh, it’s tough
Gina dreams of running away when she cries in the night
Tommy whispers, “Baby, it’s okay, someday”

[Pre-Chorus]
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]
Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer, livin’ on a prayer

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge]
Ooh, we’ve got to hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it’s all that you’ve got

[Chorus]
Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear…
(Woah, we’re halfway there
Woah-oh, livin’ on a prayer)
