Endless Sleep

Endless Sleep

Don Williams

The night was dark, rain falling down.
Looked for my baby, she's nowhere around.
Traced her footsteps down to the shore;
Afraid 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 back 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.
