I Cover the Waterfront Lyrics

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
Will the dawn coming on, make it light

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
Are you forgetting
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
