Some other versions of "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?
