Tiefe Sehnsucht strahlt das Lied aus:


Away from the city that hurts and mocks,

I'm standing alone by the desolate docks,

In the still and the cill 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,

And I'm covered by a starless sky above.

Here am I patiently waiting hoping and longing.

Oh! how I yearn! Where are you?

Are you forgetting?

Do you remenber?

Will you return?

I cover the waterfront,

I'm watching the sea,

For the one I love must soon come back to me.
