Endless Sleep

This song is by Jody Reynolds and appears on the compilation Goodies Old Is New - Rare Singles From the Golden Age of Rock N Roll (2004).

This song has been covered by…
The night was black, rain fallin' 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 cryin' 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 a voice cryin' 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 darlin', 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 me away"
My heart cried out, "She's mine to keep
I saved my baby from an endless sleep"

Endless sleep, endless sleep
