Don Williams – Endless Sleep lyrics

The night was dark, rain falling down
Looked for my baby she's nowhere around
Traced her footsteps down to the shore
'Fraid she's gone forever more

I looked at the sea and it seemed to say
I took your baby from you away
I heard a voice crying in the deep
Come join me baby in my endless sleep

Why did we quarrel, why did we fight
Why did I leave her alone tonight
That's why her footsteps ran into the sea
That's why my baby is gone from me

I looked at the sea and it seemed to say
I took your baby from you away
I heard a voice crying in the deep
Come join me baby in my endless sleep

Ran in the water, heart full of fear
There in the breakers I saw her near
Reached for my baby, held her to me
Stole her away from the endless sleep

I looked at the sea and it seemed to say
You took your baby from me away
My heart cried out, she's mine to keep
I saved my baby from that endless sleep
