PRAYER 94

Once upon a time
Not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks
Union's went on strike
He's down on his luck...it's tough (Richie)it's tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day - (Richie) Yes She Does
Working for her man, she brings home her pay
For love (richie) for his 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
Whooah Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Whooah 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, so tough
Gina dreams of running away (Richie)Yes she does
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers baby it's okay (Richie)it's ok, 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:
Whooah, we're half way there
Whooah Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Whooah Livin' on a prayer
We're Livin on a prayer

~Guitar Solo~

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

You gotta say whooah we're half way there
Whooah Livin on a prayer
Take my hand we'll make it i swear
Ooohhh Livin on a prayer
Ooohhh, We're half way they
whooah Livin on a prayer
take my hand we'll make it i swear
Oohh livin on a prayer
Oohh livin on a prayer
Whooah livin on a prayer yeah

Tommy used to work on the docks
The union went on strike
He's down on his luck, it's tough
Hey Tommy, it's tough...

I think that Prayer '94 is probably what Jon originally intended the song to be before the record company got hold of it. It is after all, a love song. I think that the recording shows much more emotion, and definitely shows more of Jon's talent as a singer. As a "Power Ballad" it was lacking, but done acoustically, and with some feeling, "Prayer" comes alive. I love the simplicity of the hand drums and acoustic guitar on this recording also.
