the water is wide lyrics – indigo girls

the water is wide, i can’t cross o’er
and neither i have wings to fly
give me a boat carry two
and both shall row, my love and i

love is gentle, love is kind
the sweetest flower when first it blooms
but love grows old and waxes cold
and fades away like morning dew

there is a ship that sails the sea
she’s loaded deep as deep can be
but not as deep as the love i made
i know not how i’ll sink or swim

the water is wide, i can’t 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
