I was bruised and battered
I couldn't tell what I felt
I was unrecognizable to myself
I see my reflection in a window
I don't know my own face
Oh brother, please don't leave me
Wasting away on the streets of Philadelphia

I walk this avenue 'til my legs feel like stone
I hear the voices of friends vanished and gone
At night I can hear the blood running through my veins
Just as black and whispering as the rain
On the streets of Philadelphia
Philadelphia

Ain't no angel gonna greet me
It's just you and I, my friend
These clothes, they don't fit me anymore
I've walked a thousand miles
And I wanna slip this skin

Night has fallen, I'm lying awake
I can feel myself fading away
So receive me brother with your faithful kiss
Or will we leave each other alone like this
On the streets of Philadelphia
Philadelphia
