The Water Is Wide

This song is by Charlotte Church and appears on the album Enchantment (2001).

The water is wide
I cannot 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

O love is handsome
and love is fine
And love's a jewel while it is new
But when it is old, it grows so cold
and fades away like morning dew...
