Endless sleep (Audio)

The night was black, rain falling down
Looked for my baby, she's nowhere around
Traced her footsteps down to the shore
'fraid she's gone forevermore.

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 has gone from me.


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

My heart cried out: She's mine to keep!
I saved my baby from an |: |: endless sleep :| :|
