endless sleep

(reynolds – nance)

The night was black, 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 her 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 has gone from me
I looked at the sea and it seemed to say
I took your baby from you away
I heard her voice crying in the deep
Come join me baby in my endless sleep

Ran in the water, heart full of fear
There in the breaker I saw her near
Reached for my darling, held her to me
Stole her away from the angry sea

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