Artist/Band: Jimmy Witherspoon
Lyrics for Song: Endless Sleep
Lyrics for Album: Baby Baby Baby [1991]



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.
