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.
