Streets of Philadelphia


   Streets of Philadelphia



I was bruised and battered
and I couldn't tell what I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
I saw my reflection in a window
I Didn't know my own face
Oh brother are you gonna leave me
Wastin' away
On the streets of Philadelphia
 
I walked the avenue till my legs felt like stone
I heard the voices of friends vanished and gone
At night I hear the blood in my veins
Black and whispering as the rain
On the streets of Philadelphia
 
Ain't no angel gonna greet me
It's just you and I my friend
My clothes don't fit me no more
I walked a thousand miles
Just to slip this skin
 
The night has fallen, I'm lyin' awake
I can feel myself fading away
So receive me brother with your faithless kiss
Or will we leave each other alone like this?
On the streets of Philadelphia
