Goot, Alex - Livin' On A Prayer 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, livin' on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Whoa, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock
Now he's holding in
What he used to make it talk
It's tough, it's tough

Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night
Tommy whispers,
"Baby, it's okay, someday...

...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]

Livin' on a prayer

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

[Chorus x2]

    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
    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

    Woah, we're half way there
    Woah, livin' on a prayer
    Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
    Woah, 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

    Woah, livin' on a prayer
    Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
    Woah, livin' on a prayer
    Livin' on a prayer

    Oh, we've got to hold on, ready or not
    You live for the fight when it's all that you've got
    Woah, we're half way there
    Woah, livin' on a prayer
    Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
    Woah, livin' on a prayer

    Woah, we're half way there

    Woah, livin' on a prayer
    Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
    Woah, livin' on a prayer

  42. NASUHA SUHA

    Awesome

  43. Castilios

    I havent heard the original, but this is an amazing cover, great job

    David Ratty

    I'm gonna go ahead and pretend you didn't just say that...

    Patrick Evertse

    You... You haven't heard the original??? WTF

  44. James Shaw

    Sounds just live Bon jovi and that’s a damn good thing

    Dondee Español

    "Sounds just live Bon Jovi."??? I don't think so. Not even close. But great cover though.

  45. Saitamaro

    He tried not to overdo it, trying to much like bon jovi and rather keeping his own style and it sounds damn good.

  46. Nando Bergamaski

    393/5000
    We can't belittle the boy's talent. But it is clear that his voice and singing do not match rock n 'roll. Particularly this timbre voice does not like me either, it is a very youthful voice, it combines more with Justin Bieber style songs, Back Street Boys, ..... but I reaffirm that he sings a lot. But his singing voice and way spoils this international anthem.

    Iroes McQueen

    Yeah for sure..

  47. Psycho Pass

    Dont listen to them mean comments they are just jealous of ure talent

  48. Kronse

    His voice may be not the best fitting if you compare it to Bon Jovis' which I'm pretty sure most of you did. But let's be realistic nobody sings like Bon Jovi. And this guy has a pretty amazing voice in general so give him a f*cking break and let him have his shot at a song he likes.

    Sammy Marrco

    exactly!

  49. Lucas Fernandes

    Sensacional canta e toca todos os instrumentos 😯👏🏻

  50. Aditya Ganes

    Coffe shop metal..

  51. sleepingcatty

    Awesome. I love it.

  52. xxx 123

    Stick to your own root you r not deserves to sing this song you r ruinin the legendary classic Rock song, it's not your cup of tea to do this kind of Rock songs so better u stick to your own pop shitttt music not ROCK N ROLL

    erancejel

    Your grammar is shit

    Ashley Stevens

    xxx 123 fuck off turd you wouldn’t understand talent unless it was at the level your grammar is

    Thomas L

    U may dislike, I love rock n roll 2 and I m not sure his voice is apropriate but you can't forbid somebody to sing what he wants

  53. Swapna md

    Gay version of the metal music.

    Ad Hoc

    Bon Jovi isn't metal but ok

    Rithik Dutta

    Still gay

    michael delos reyes

    bon jovi is not metal stupid

  54. Daniel Newhouse

    K, that's a Gibson jumbo.

  55. Leonardo Saramanbiche

    Don’t pay attention to negative comments songs sounds awesome

    unknown Number

    Tats true they are jealous keep it up bro

  56. ROCK

    You ruined the song dude, made it sound like it was sung by a teenage girl.

    ROCK

    @Jackie Bruhn No, you don't. You're just a fat feminist.

    Rithik Dutta

    Look at all you fucking snowflakes. Yeah someone doesn't fucking like the song you stupid fucks. Grow tf up.

    Dika Adiputra

    but the way he playing instrument, It's fucking awesome!

    OverDriven X

    @ROCK Atleast he tried dude. He worked hard for the cover, and that's what he get in return. Tbh, you shouldn't actually care if the song is good or not, if you don't like it, just scram. And atleast be less toxic.

  57. Joe Salinaz

    I've got nothing, great job!

  58. DuduSP

    Genius!!!!

  59. Manu e Gabriel Oficial

    Amazing! Just a point: so much tuner in your voice. Remove a little bit and then will be PERFECT. Congrats!!

  60. Alguien No se

    I love this you gave it a new look!!

  61. Wesley Menezes

    Amazing!

  62. KTricks _

    Talented on Instruments, but terrible voice lol

    jtcotton63

    @The Gecko Fanatic What's really interesting is that Bon Jovi does it the exact same way when he sings it live. All the "wo-oah"s before "livin' on a prayer"s are only sung by the backup singers and thus sound really mellow. As it turns out, if you listen to the original closely you'll notice it's the same: Jon doesn't sing any of the "wo-oah"s. They increase the volume of the backup singers by x10000 during those parts so it sounds like he is, but he isn't. https://youtu.be/qHQbLGG8Sr8?t=244 https://youtu.be/tZiDq5D6jE0?t=205

    The Gecko Fanatic

    It still felt stronger on the original, but that is an interesting fact! Thanks for telling me, I didn’t know that.

    KTricks _

    I agree he has a good voice, just doesn’t work for me on this song.

    The Gecko Fanatic

    That’s fair

  63. hellen rísia

    GAROTO????????? puts o talento

  64. vincent regent

    Way better than the original!

    Kristov Kravtz

    @vincent regent what's better in this version?

    B-Cudds Food

    Bon Jovi hits complex notes, much more powerful then this but I agree it's on par.

    ROCK

    you must be dumb

    SHADOW ASSASIN

    @vincent regent your opinion is wrong

    Psycho Pass

    I like them both

  65. Rob

    Damn he made an iconic song sound so bland and basic. He just doesn’t have the power and rasp that the song requires.

    Avalol

    Kale Hesiko I agree it was kinda boring. Is he talented yea, but this song just isn’t the right for him.

    juan mora

    Agree. His voice makes this song sounds like just another song not an Iconic song from the 80's

  66. Victor Avinash Sinha

    That's a whole lotta pitch correction :/

    Nicksperiments

    That’s what’s in style now unfortunately

  67. Pranit Sanghavi

    What instruments can you play?

    Alex: Yes

  68. pansexual piper

    I love your voice

  69. lucianna

    What instrument do you play?


    Alex:

  70. StrikingZeckrom

    Do a cover of this but say lemon on chair instead of living on a prayer

  71. db_liam

    What’s with all the dickheads in the comments?? Covers aren’t meant to sound like the original like a copy, they’re meant to exact a style the cover artist envisions.

    ROCK

    Yeah. But unfortunately, this song sounds like shit. And I didn't even care if it's a cover or not in the first place. Lol

    Psycho Pass

    @ROCK Im dissappointed in u. u dont know the taste of music

    ROCK

    @Psycho Pass I feel sorry for you. You are deaf

  91. The Trash Can

    Man, the people in these comments are saltier than the fries I get at McDonald's. At least my order of fries can come up with better insults than "CRINGE dislike" or "Fuck you." Like a bunch of six year olds trying to act tough toward someone they don't like. Also, brilliant cover by Goot. May not be some people's favorites, but it's amazing nonetheless! Good job, sir.

  94. John Miguel Alcaide

    Everyone is hating on Alex because he has a unique voice. It's different. That's why I've been listening to him since 2013. He's also the reason why I started singing again. Thank you, Alex, for being an inspiration to me ever since. I will always be your fan.

  95. Camaro Flynn 2019
