(Intro Verse:)
Away from the city the 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 last?

I cover the waterfront, I'm watching the sea;
Will the one that I love be coming back to me?

I cover the waterfront, in search of my love,
And I'm covered by a deep blue 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,
'Cause the one that I love will soon come back to me.
