lyrics

Born into summer, raised on salt in the waves down the shore
My sandy eyed sweet heart, we'd drive for hours or more
At night we'd cross the river, where the boys and girls would play
Where I lost the only one I loved in Philadelphia

Strung out on the avenue with the lonely, sick, and starved
in the South Street, city lights, we'd walk arm in arm
She slipped free in a moment, in a moment all was changed
When I lost the only one I loved in Philadelphia

A shot and shattered window the sirens bleeding through
I held my breath a-runnin' I followed the boys in blue
I fell down to my knees on the street over where she lay
Where I lost the only one I loved in Philadelphia
