I was bruised and battered I could'nt tell what I felt. I was unrecgenizeble to myself. Saw my reflection in a window I didn't know my own face. Oh brother 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 could 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. Thousand miles just to slip this skin.
The night has fallen I'm lyin' awake. I can find 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.
