Livin on a Prayer Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Once upon a time not so long ago
Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's been on strike
Verse 2
He's down on his luck
It's tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man
Verse 3
She brings home her pay for love
For love
Verse 4
She says: We've got to hold on to what we've got
'Cause 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
Verse 5
We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it
I swear, livin' on a prayer
Verse 6
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
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers: Baby
It's okay, someday
Verse 7
We've got to hold on to what we've got
We're half way there
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
We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
