THE WATER IS WIDE

Across the years, I have heard this song numerous times, but never tracked down the title and words.  But now I have, and here it is for your [and my] enjoyment.


The water is wide, I cannot get o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall cross my true love and I
 
I lean'd my back against an oak
Thinking it was a mighty tree
 But first it bent and then it broke
So did my love prove false to me
 
I put my hand in some soft bush
Thinking the sweetest flow'are to find
I prick'd my finger to the bone
And left the sweetest flow'are behind
 
O love is handsome and love is kind
Gay as a jewel when it is new
But love grows old and waxes cold
And fades away like the morning dew 
 
The water is wide, I cannot get o'er
Neither have I wings to fly
Give me a boat that can carry two
And both shall cross my true love and I

I WANT TO DANCE

As I mentioned in the previous post, there is one other song that I have written.  The basics came to me in a dream, and a friend challenged me to write it out.  Those of you who know us may see some parallels here to our life!  So here are the lyrics with some visuals.


Water couples dancing decorative patterns, ink, couple, dancing ...

I WANT TO DANCE


 Can You Mow A Wet Lawn?
I want to dance with you at the break of dawn,
like morning dew dancing on the lawn.
Our life together has just begun,
I want to dance.


Point Mugu State Park Scenic Trail
I want to dance with you in the noon day sun,
from the mountains to the ocean, we’ll make life's run.
Through highs and lows, we’ll live as one,
and we will dance.


 The green flash. happens the second that the sun goes down. Usually only found over wide spaces of water and it comes from some light refraction pattern Ship Silhouette, South Pacific, Night Lights, Marine Life, Sea Creatures, Oahu, Amazing Nature, Science Nature, Sunsets
I want to dance with you when the sun goes down,
we’ll watch the green flash all alone,
then walk the beach until we’re home,
and we will dance.



I want to dance with you in the evening time,
enjoying friends and family, and a glass of wine,
a toast to life and the fruit of our vine,
and we can dance.


And now, we have another chance,
for romance and a dance.

Milky Way
I want to dance with you with the stars above,
the Milky Way shining on our love,
our lives near over, but others live on
‘cause we have danced….yes we’ve danced….yes we’ve danced.
