Lyrics

Philadelphia


By Neil Young

Sometimes I think that I know
What love's all about
And when I see the light
I know I'll be all right.

I've got my friends in the world,
I had my friends
When we were boys and girls
And the secrets came unfurled.

City of brotherly love
Place I call home
Don't turn your back on me
I don't want to be alone
Love lasts forever.

Someone is talking to me,
Calling my name
Tell me I'm not to blame
I won't be ashamed of love.

Philadelphia,
City of brotherly love.
Brotherly love.

Sometimes I think that I know
What love's all about
And when I see the light
I know I'll be all right.
Philadelphia

catiamancini text from her sidebar at Youtube:

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an upcoming fantasy-adventure mystery film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown. In the film, the leader of a traveling theater troupe, through a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.

Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits and Heath Ledger star in the film, though the death of Ledger midway through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended. Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying physically changed transformations of Ledger's character as he travels through dimensions. The projected release date for this film is 2009. Christopher Plummer as Doctor Parnassus: The 1,000-year-old leader of a traveling theater troupe

Tom Waits as The Devil.
Lily Cole as Valentina: Doctor Parnassus's daughter.
Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell as Tony, a mysterious outsider, who joins the troupe.
Andrew Garfield as Anton.
Verne Troyer as Percy.


When Ledger died in the midst of production, January 22, 2008, filming had been finished for scenes placed in the real world. With the rest of production focusing on filming scenes of the troupe's travels through a magical realm, Ledger's role was recast to have new actors portray his "physically transformed versions" in the realm. Depp, Law and Farrell will portray those transformations.
