Waiting for the nightingale to sing
Waiting for the harbour lights to dim
I've been on the outside lookin' in
While the widow in the window waits for him

But he won't be back, can't you realize that?
And he's laughing at your sorrow

Waiting for a ship that won't come in
Waiting for a tear to reach her chin
I'm knockin', but she will not let me in

And he won't be back, can't you realize that?
And he's laughing at your sorrow

How can I explain, your love is all in vain
While he wastes your precious hours
I could fill your days with flowers

How can I replace the smile upon a face
Of a lover that I can never be?
How can I begin to make you love again
And try to make you see?

That he won't be back, can't you realize that?
And he's laughing at your sorrow
No, he won't be back, can't you realize that?
And he's laughing at your sorrow

How can I explain, that your love is all in vain
While you waste your precious hours
I could fill your days with flowers, flowers

Flowers, flowers, flowers
Flowers, flowers, flowers
Flowers, flowers, flowers
