Harbor Lights

Artists: The Platters (peak Billboard position # 8 in 1960) there were 5 Top 10
versions in 1950
Was the background theme used in the 1940 film "The Long Voyage Home"
Words and Music by Hugh Williams and Jimmy Kennedy
Written in England
Also recorded in 1950 by Sammy Kaye and His Orchestra with vocals by Don Cornell

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 silvry 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 whispring
Some other harbor 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 whispring
Some other harbor lights will steal your love from me
