Streets of Philadelphia Songtext
I was bruised and battered
I couldn't tell what I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
Saw my reflection in a window
Didn't know my own face
So brother are you gonna leave me wasting away
On the streets of Philadelphia
I walked the avenue 'til my legs felt like stone
I heard voices of friends vanished and gone
At night I hear the blood in my veins
Just as 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
And my clothes don't fit me no more
I walked a thousand miles just to slip this skin

Night is fallen, I'm lying 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
