I was bruised and battered, 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, 'til 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.

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
- Bruce Springsteen
