    "I Cover The Waterfront" Lyrics

    Joe Pass

    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?
