​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
