"On A Prayer" as written by Patrick Alger, Garth Brooks and Larry B. Bastian....
There抯 a ship out on the ocean,
At the mercy of the sea.
It抯 been tossed about, lost and broken
Wondering aimlessly.
And god somehow you know that ship is me.

Cause there抯 a lighthouse in the harbor
Shining faithfully.
Pouring its light out across the water
For this sinking soul to see
That someone out there still believes in me.

Chorus:
On a prayer, in a song, I hear your voice, and it keeps me hanging on, on.
Raining down, against the wind,
I'm reaching out till we reach the circle抯 end, when you come back to me again.

There抯 a moment that we all come to
In our own time, and our own space where all that we抳e done we can undo
If our heart抯 in the right place
(Repeat chorus)

And again I see my yesterdays in front of me.
Unfolding like a mystery
You抮e changing all that is and use to be

(Repeat chorus)
When you come back to me,
Again.
