The night was dark, rain fallin' down
Look for my baby, he's nowhere around
I traced his footsteps down to the shore
Afraid he's gone forever more

(Chorus)

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

Why did we quarrel? Why did we fight?
Why did I leave him alone tonight?
That's why his footsteps ran to the sea
That's why my baby is gone from me

(Repeat Chorus)

Ran in the water, heart full of fear
There in the breakers, I saw him near
Reached for my baby, held him to me
Stole him 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, "He's mine to keep"
I saved my baby from that endless sleep

I saved my baby from that endless sleep
I saved my baby from that endless sleep
