Jane Siberry – The Water Is Wide lyrics

The water is wide, I can't cross o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And two shall row, my love and I

There is a ship that sails the sea
It's laden deep as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim

And when we've come to life's sweet end
Two hearts which naught but death could part
Will we be wed in a life to come
Or must we lie, the water wide
Or must we lie fore'er apart?

The water is wide, I can't cross o'er
And neither have I wings to fly
Build me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row
Two hearts shall flow
My love and I
