The Water is Wide 
as performed by Jewel 

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 its 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 im 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
