Harbor Lights
The Platters Lyrics


I saw the harbor lights
They only told me we were parting
The same old harbor lights that once brought you to me
I watched the harbor lights
How could I help if tears were starting
Goodbye to tender nights beside the silv'ry sea

I long to hold you near and kiss you just once more
But you were on the ship and I was on the shore
Now I know lonely nights
For all the while my heart is whisp'ring
Some other harbor lights will steal your love from me

I long to hold you near and kiss you just once more
But you were on the ship and I was on the shore

Now I know lonely nights
For all the while my heart is whisp'ring
Some other harbor lights will steal your love from me

I was in the U.S. Navy (1961-1965) and served aboard the Destroyer U.S.S. Walker (DD-517) stationed at Pearl Harbor Hawaii. On board, we had a band that played "Harbor Lights" whenever we left a port which I know I wasn't the only sailor with a lump in his throat. Thanks for a very well done video.

The Platters are one of the very best groups from the 50's---this song and My Prayer are my faves :)

This is one of those beautiful songs from the '50s that we hardly are aware of now. Lovely melody, evocative images through the words, and captures the meaning of the emotion so well. Seniors at the retirement community I work at sang this in a recent '50s musical show and it was so sweet.

This version is the best ever.  Never fails to move me.
