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
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
