The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes And the moon and stars were the gifts you gave To the dark and the empty skies, my love To the dark and the empty skies The first time ever I kissed your mouth I felt the earth move in my hand Like the trembling heart of a captive bird That was there at my command, my love That was there at my command The first time ever I held you near And felt your heart beat close to mine I thought our joy would fill the world And would last 'til the end of time, my love And would last 'til the end of time
