Performances (3)

(Indigo Girls)

The water is wide, I can't cross over
And neither I have wings to fly
Give me a boat carry two
And both shall row, my love and I


(Jewel)

Now love is gentle, love is kind
The sweetest flower when first its new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like morning dew


(Sarah McLachlan)

There is a ship that sailed the sea
She's loaded deep, as deep can be
But not as deep as the love I'm in
I know not how I sink or swim


(Indigo Girls, Jewel and Sarah McLachlan)

The water is wide, I can't cross over
And neither I have wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall row, my love and I
And both shall row, my love and I
Water Is Wide
