I Cover the Waterfront
Billie Holiday Lyrics


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?

I cover the waterfront
I'm watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me?

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?

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?

She sang the way I've always felt inside since I was at least five or perhaps earlier, and I don't remember.

No one can shape a song like Billie! Pure Genius.

So many favorites of Billie Holiday....like stranded on desert isle stuff......sooooooooooooogooooooooddddddd glad there are recordings, and vids of this insanely incredible stuff...sad for generations that may miss this....you can dig anybody, but when she moves you, you're a deeper soul...
