Here I stand watch -ing the tide go out,
So all a -lone and blue, Just dream -ing dreams of you.
I watched your ship as it sailed out to sea,
Tak -ing all my dreams and tak -ing all of me.
The sigh -ing of waves, the wail -ing of the wind,
The tears in my eyes burn, plead -ing, "My love ret -turn."
Why oh, why must I go on like this,
Shall I just be a -lone -ly Stran -ger On The Shore.
