Livin on A Prayer

Have you ever listened to this song? Livin on a Prayer? Bon Jovi composed this song… And I like this song coz of the lyrics and spirited melodies. Would you like to read and keep trying to think what theme the lyrics is about?

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

I think this song is about the life spirit…. Tommy and Gina fight to gain the bad of life. No matter how hard it is, they always keep their mind for love. They realize that they are in a half way (from life and death)… then they want to enjoy their life… without any suffers.

Furthermore, the song is about prayers…. They do their duty to pray. Maybe, livin on the surrounding of prayers will make me easy to do my life, but it is not a guarantee…  WhadboutU? For me, I’m still learning to pray.. Without  Him, I am vulnerable, weak, and looser…. Keep praying! No matter how you feel today… God Bless You.
