Lyrics
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 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
 
Chorus
Whoa, we're half way there
Whoa-Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
Whoa-Oh, livin' on a prayer
Lyrics
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"
 
Chorus
Whoa, we're half way there
Whoa-Oh, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
Whoa-Oh, livin' on a prayer
 
Lyrics
We gotta hold on ready or not
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got
chorus repeats ...

Was surprised that the first line in the song isn't included here. Granted it's spoken rather than sung, but still...

I don't really care for this genre of music, but I have always enjoyed Bon Jovi. I feel like he does it with a wink, so it doesn't seem so over-the-top. Bands like Motley Crue, Poison, Def Leppard, etc. always seem so humorless to me. How can you dress that way and take yourself so seriously? I always got the impression Bon Jovi was just happy to be on the ride, and wanted everyone to enjoy himself. I think that's why he has stayed in the mainstream long after those other bands were relegated to various "Where Are They Now?" type TV shows. Also the guy can really sing. No denying that. Anyway, just an observation.

I should amend that: it still seems over-the-top. But he knows it. That's why it's fun.

Can you accept "dock" as well? When hearing this song on the radio, I never heard the plural form.

Does it bother anyone else that this song says "doesn't make a difference if we make it or not", then "we'll make it, I swear"? Don't get me wrong - love the song, but that always struck me as juxtaposed.

"It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not" is what Gina says. "We'll make it, I swear" is what Tommy says.

Not to be a stickler, but I've heard this song before and I don't remember the line "chorus repeats ...". Maybe it's just me.
