The Water is Wide Lyrics

Artist: Charlotte Church

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

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

When you sing the "I can not get o'er" you can also say "I can not get over". Either way it sounds beautiful!!!☺

GOD has blessed her with so much talent, like we are all blessed!
JESUS loves you all so much and so do i

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. - John 3:18

Wow, I love this song, presleigh, GOD really has given her a wonderful gift, but I don't know why she gave up classical singing! she sounds so much better that way! now she is just doing pop and hip hop!!!

I lost all of my admiration for her when she switched genres of music. She's a little like everyone else now, wierd and she has problems. Sometimes its better to not be a sheep and follow the crowd.

She has taken a lot of voice lesson and worked very hard to get her voice the way it is. It was not given to her by GOD.

I totally agree with what Edie said.

I agree she should have never given up singing so sweetly, I would of bought every album... her voice lights up my day in this album, a complete jewel!

her voice is so beautiful and i agree that she should have kind of been her own person and sung the way she is best at, but its still amazing!

Perhaps the way she is singing now is what she wants to do. What if she switched genres because of her own desires and goals, not because it was what everyone else is doing? In which case, just continuing what she had been doing would have been her "not being her own person." You disagreeing with the change she made doesn't automatically invalidate her decision.
