Streets Of Philadelphia Lyrics

Artist: Bruce Springsteen

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.

This song is most powerful song I`ve ever heard. This is a pure and clear message to all of us - never turn back to the ones whom need our help!
I simply love this song and adore "The Boss" himself! :)

i don't think the message is "never turn back to the ones whom need our help!" I think it's more like "Be honest to yourself or you'll los everything" Well, it's just my opinion

Esta canción me profundiza en el mar de la tristeza y en la playa de la melancolía....
