Harbor Lights


Lyrics by:  Jimmy Kennedy

Music by:  Will Grosz

Originally made famous by: Sammy Kaye and his Orchestra

From the Film:  The Long Voyage Home  (1940)



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 silvr'y sea.

I longed 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.
