"Livin' On A Prayer" - Bon Jovi

Tohru Honda

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...

Tohru Honda. A teenage girl who lost an important part of her life. She lost her parents. Her father to pneumonia and her mother to a car crash. Yet, she's as happy as ever. She's optimistic. And, most importantly, she still loves.

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...

Yes she does. Tohru believes that you should hold on to life dearly. You should be able to hold on to the past, even though it causes you pain. It doesn't matter to her if she lives forever. In her mind, it matters how you live your life now and how you deal with the past. She kindly accepts any challenge life throws her way. She never gives up.

Whoa- oh, we're half way there
Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Livin on a prayer...

Faith is all you need, according to Tohru. Deep in her heart, I believe that she prays for many things. She lives on that small prayer as though it was air to her. That's what makes her different than all the others.

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...

Someday Tohru will find true love in somebody. She will love them with all her heart and soul and will do everything in her power to protect. Right now, Yuki and Kyo, Hana and Uo, they are her support team. When things get heard for her, they remind her that they will always get better if you believe. And so, she believes friendship and the power of prayer to be a large factor in her life.

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...

Yuki and Kyo. Tohru keeps them in line. Why? She trusts them and believes in them enough to realize that they will always be there for her when she needs them the most.

Whoa- oh, we're half way there
Livin on a prayer
Take my hand and we'll make it - I swear
Livin on a prayer...

Her lifestyle reflects on each and every one of the Sohmas. She always remembers everybody as her family; her family that loves her. Kyoko. Katsuya. Hana. Uo. Kyo. Yuki. Shigure. Ayame. Hatori. Hatsuharu. Momiji. Kisa. Hiro. Rin. Kureno. Kagura. Ritsu. Kazuma. And even Akito. When she looks at this list, she knows she is loved...


I just chose this song randomly out of my iTunes list! :)

I really hope that it's not too bad...
