I Cover the Waterfront
Away from the city that hurts and knocks I'm standing alone by the desolate docks In the still and the chill of the night I see the horizon, the great unknown My heart has an ache It's as heavy as stone With the dawn coming on; make it last I cover the waterfront I'm watching the sea Will the one I love Be coming back to me? I cover the waterfront In search of my love And I'm covered By a starlit-sky above Here am I Patiently waiting Hoping and longing Oh, how I yearn Where are you? Have you thought back time? Will you remember? Will you return? Will the one I love Be coming back To me?
