The water is wide Lyrics

The water is wide by Jewel  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The water is wide The water is wide I cant cross o'er
And neither I have wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row - my love and i

Now love is gentle love is kind
The sweetest flower when first it's new
But love grows cold and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew

There is a ship she sails the sea
Shes loaded deep as deep as can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not how I sink or swim

The water is wide I cant cross o'er
And neither I have wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row - my love and i
And both shall row - my love and i

The water is wide
Original lyrics

The water is wide. I cannot get o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row my love and i

I leaned my back up against an oak
I thought it was a trusty tree
But first it swayed and then it broke
And so my false love did unto me

Oh love is handsome and love is kind
And love's a jewel when it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew
Morning dew
Morning dew
Like morning dew
