Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer


Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Unions been on strike
He's down on his luck...its 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

[Chorus:]
Whooah, we're half way there
Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Livin' on a prayer

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
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
First off, I love this song. It’s just a classic rock song… and I love it. Secondly, it’s sung by Jon Bon Jovi… total hottie!!! This guy has a down-right sexy voice and hot bod… then and now!

This song reminds me a bit of my life. While I don’t necessarily struggle with making money, I’m pretty much stuck in a dead end job that has very little job security. Seeing how the economy’s been as well as my company’s recent and long term history of laying people off, I could easily lose my job at any given time.

Then what do I do? I’ve wasted my life away with this job. I never finished my degree… I don’t really have much to fall back on. So it’s a bit frightening for me to try to ponder life after this crappy job I have.

This song is upbeat and hopeful. I’m with someone I love very much, so that’s all that should matter, right? Well, that’s what the song says anyway! Heh!
