A ship came in but it was empty and it sailed back out to sea again
Now there's the sail on the horizon and now I wait until your ship comes in
And I'll be waiting in the port of lonely hearts watchin' for your topsail on the sea
Prayin' that my ship of love will come to the port of lonely hearts where I will be
I'll brave the storm until you're with me
Cause the wind and rain can't change a love that's true
I'll be alone until you anchor and then I'll leave this lonely port with you
Till then I'm waiting in the port of lonely hearts...
