I saw the harbour lights
They only told me we were parting
The same old harbour lights
That once brought you to me

I watched the harbour 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 harbour 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 harbour lights
Will steal your love from me

Will steal your love from me
