First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Vanessa WilliamsBuy this song

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
The moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and endless skies, my love
To the dark and endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my head
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there, there at my command, my love
That was there at my command

The first time ever I lay with you
And I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And would last 'til the end of time, my love
It would last 'til the end of time

The first time ever I saw your face, your face
Your face, your face, your face, your face
