The Water Is Wide

This song is by James Taylor and appears on the album New Moon Shine (1991).

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 my love and I

There is a ship
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 how I sink or swim

O love is handsome and love is fine
the sweetest flower when first it's new
but love grows old and waxes cold
and fades away like summer dew

Build me a boat that can carry two
and both shall row
my love and I
and both shall row
my love and I
