"I Cover The Waterfront" lyrics - JOE PASS

"I Cover The Waterfront"
(J.W. Green / Johnny Green / 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 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?
