lyrics

Said the damage has been done
but boy did we have fun
Now I stand alone, just a king without a throne
throwing matches at the sun

Oh, Philadelphia
your son is tired and cold
His house is not a home, it's a body without bones
with its bedrooms full of gold

I've never known where to begin
Sure i gave up, but baby you gave in
Now I wander like the wind in search of something true
I've never known a home since I knew you

With this verse I should begin
Confession of my sins
with my hand upon my chest, I swear I've done my best
with what I've been given

Oh, Philadelphia
what have you done to me
My throat is full of sand, my heart is in your hand
Unrighteous rhapsody

I've never known where to begin
Sure i gave up, but baby you gave in
Now I wander like the wind in search of something true
I've never known a home since I knew you

So I'll run to you

Cause I haven't known a home since I knew you
