Endless Sleep Lyrics

by The Judds

The night was dark, rain fallin' down
Looked for my baby, he's nowhere around
I traced his footsteps down to the shore
Afraid he'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 your baby in my endless sleep"

Why did we quarrel? Why did we fight?
Why did I leave him alone tonight?
That's why his footsteps ran to 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 cryin' in the deep
"Come join your baby in my endless sleep"

Ran in the water, heart full of fear
There in the breakers, I saw him near
Reached for my baby, held him to me
Stole him away 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, "He's mine to keep"
I saved my baby from that endless sleep

I saved my baby from that endless sleep
I saved my baby from that endless sleep
