I decided to do a remix of I cover the waterfront
There are many renditions of the classic tune
but, I like Billie Holiday's Best
I wanted to give Holiday an Hiphop edge if she was still living...
shoot... as if she needed an edge.
A force all her own!
I just obliged to the love of music and Holiday.
Such a vocal; such style!

What also gave inspiration to the track was
Aaliyah I can Be and Erykah Badu Didn't Cha Know
and The Dramatics, The Stylistics, Smokey Robinson
Amy Winehouse, Jazmine Sullivan, Phyllis Hyman, Eddie Kendricks


intimate friends
oh ah

“Away from the city that hurts and knocks,
I’m standing alone by
the desolate docks

In the still and the chill of the night
I see the horizon the great unknown

my my my
My heart has an ache
It’s as heavy as stone

ooh With the dawn coming on,
oh make it last
how so sad
u sitting there
with those, tears in ur eyes
oh baby

(i can be i can be i can be)

I cover the waterfront
I cover the waterfront
I cover the waterfront

I’m watching the sea
Will the one I love
Be coming back to me
I cover the waterfront
In search of my love

An I’m covered 2x
By a starlit sky above

Here am I
Patiently waiting
Hoping and longing
Oh how I yearn
Where are you
Have you thought back time
Will you remember
Will you return
with the same old lies
Will the one I love
Be coming back
To me”

i cover the waterfront
i cover the waterfront


didn cha know
didn cha know
that i love u
that i love u
I love You

i can be
anything i wanna be
all that we strive to be
anything we wanna be
believe in yoself
believe in yoself
