I COVER THE WATERFRONT

Billie Holiday

Billy Remembers Billie


Away from the city that hurts and mocks,
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 light?

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?
Are you forgetting?
Do you remember?
Will you return?
I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me

For the one I love
Must soon come back
To me

Composição: Johnny W. Green / Edward Heyman
