The night was dark, rain fallin' down. Look for my baby, he's nowhere around. I traced his footsteps down to the shore, Afraid he's gone forever more.
[Chorus] 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.
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.
