Streets of Philadelphia
Springsteen, Bruce

I was bruised and battered and I couldnīt tell
what I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
Saw my reflection in a window I didnīt know
my own face
Oh brother are you gonna leave me
wasting 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

Ainīt no angel gonna greet me
Itīs just you and I my friend
And my clothes donīt fit me no more
I walked a thousand miles
just to slip this skin

The night has fallen, Iīm lyinī 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
