Billie Holiday I COVER THE WATERFRONT Lyrics

Last updated: 11/15/2011 10:00:00 AM

Johnny W. Green / Edward Heyman

Away from the city that hurts and mocks
I'm standing alone by the desolate docks
in 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 Iove
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 forgotten?
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?
