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, workin' 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
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
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock, now he's holdin' in
What he used to make it talk, so tough, so tough
Gina dreams of runnin' away, she cries in the night
Tommy whispers, "Baby it's okay, someday"

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

We're half way there, livin' on a prayer, take my hand
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer, livin' on a prayer

We've got to hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when that's all that you've got

We're half way there, livin' on a prayer, take my hand
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer
We're half way there, livin' on a prayer, take my hand
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer

We're half way there, livin' on a prayer, take my hand
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer
We're half way there, livin' on a prayer, take my hand
We'll make it, I swear, livin' on a prayer
