Away from the city that hurts and mocks
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 strlit 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?
