Lyrics

[Andrew Bloom]
Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's been on strike
He's down on his luck
It's tough, so tough

[Andrew Butcher]
Gina works the diner all day
Working for her man
She brings home her pay
For love, for love

[Michael Conor]
She says, "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 that's a lot
For love we'll give it a shot."

[All and Chance Perez]
Whoa, we're half-way there
Whoa, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it. I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

[Marcus Pendleton]
Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in
What he used to make it talk
So tough, it's tough

[Andrew Bloom and Marcus Pendleton]
Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers
"Baby, it's okay, someday

[Michael Conor]
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 that's a lot
For love we'll give it a shot

[All]
Whoa, we're half-way there
Whoa, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it. I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Livin' on a prayer
