I Cover The Waterfront

I Cover The Waterfront
music by Johnny Green
lyric by Edward Heyman

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 starless sky above.

Here am I, patiently waiting, hoping and longing, oh, how I yearn.
Where are you? Are you forgetting? Do you remember? Will you return?

I cover the waterfront, I'm watching the sea,
For the one I love must come back to me...
