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
An 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?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me?

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?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me?

Will the one I love
Be coming back
To me?
