I Cover The Waterfront (1956 / Carnegie Hall) by Billie Holiday


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