The Water is Wide Lyrics - Charlotte Church

Review The Song (1)

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

Where love is planted, O there it grows,
It grows and blossoms like a rose;
It has a sweet and pleasant smell,
No flower on earth can it excel.

A ship there is and she sails the sea
She's loaded deep as deep can be
But not so deep as the love I'm in
I know not if I sink or swim.

Oh, love is handsome and love is fine
And loves a jewel when it is new
*But when it is old it grows so cold*
And fades away like morning dew.

Love the melody of this song... | Reviewer: Karla | 8/13/11

I fell in love with this song many years ago and it haunts my memory every now and then.
I just watched a video of this song sung by Charlotte Church where the creator used absolutely beautiful visuals, fade ins & outs, and accurate wording of the lyrics throughout in a nice font.
The person who submitted the lyrics to this song to this site did a wonderful job. I only found one word to be corrected and that would be in the 3rd verse, 1st line, 1st word. The word should be "A" not "The" so that it leads into "A ship there is..."
I will enjoy this song and it's melody all my life.
