Streets Of Philadelphia


I was bruised and battered and I couldnít tell
What I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
I saw my reflection in a window I didnít know
My own face
Oh brother are you gonna leave me
Wastiní 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 could hear the blood in my veins
Black and whispering as the rain
On the streets of Philadelphia

Ainít no angel gonna greet me
Itís just you and I my friend
My clothes donít fit me no more
I walked a thousand miles
Just to slip this skin

The night has fallen, Iím lyiní 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
