untitled song lyrics – indigo girls

i tried my best to get over you
kept my distance so i wouldn’t have to show
that the things which i kept hidden by my casual smile
were the things that i needed you to know
you could have seen the acting on the stage
you might have read the writing on the page
you could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
but you never knew it was i was falling for you

sometimes i still think i could get to you
then i laugh and think i could swim the seven seas
it seems when i’m set to fly there’s a storm up in the sky
when i’m set to sail there isn’t any breeze
you could have seen the acting on the stage
you might have read the writing on the page
you could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
but you never knew it was i was falling for you

it’s been some time now that i saw you in a photograph
looking just the way you did so long ago
i could almost see you throw your head back and start to laugh
in that gentle way that used to let me know
things were okay and a hurting song is just a cliche
and what’s the use if they only always fade away
just like the sun just like everyone but you

indigo girls – the water is wide
the water is wide
i can’t cross over
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
and love is kind
the sweetest flower
when first it’s new
but love grows old
and waxes cold
and fades away
like morning dew

there is a ship
she sails the sea
she’s loaded deep
as deep 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 can’t cross over
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
