Lyrics

Once upon a time not so long ago
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

For love
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"

We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it I swear
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
When she cries in the night

Tommy whispers, "Baby, it's okay
Someday"
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
We're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear

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
Take my hand and we'll make it, I swear
Livin' on a prayer
