    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
    An 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
