Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was bruised and battered and 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
Brother, are you gonna leave me wastin' away
On the streets of Philadelphia?
Verse 2
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
On the streets of Philadelphia
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
On the streets of Philadelphia
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
Verse 5
Ain't no angel gonna greet me
It's just you and I my friend
And my clothes don't fit me no more
A thousand miles just to slip this skin
Verse 6
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?
Verse 7
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
On the streets of Philadelphia
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
Verse 8
La-la-la-la-la
On the streets of Philadelphia
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
Verse 9
Streets, streets, streets of Philadelphia
Streets, streets, streets of Philadelphia
Streets, streets, streets of Philadelphia
Streets, streets, streets of Philadelphia
Verse 10
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la (la-la-la-la, ooh)
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la, la
