Harry Belafonte - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

HARRY BELAFONTE


The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Lyrics

The first time
Ever I saw your face
I thought the sun
Rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars
Were the gifts you gave
To the dark
And the empty skies
My Love
To the dark
And the endless skies
The first time

Ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth
Move in my hands
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 lay with you
I felt your heart
So close to mine
And I knew our joy
Would fill the earth
And last
Till the end of time
My love
And would last
Till the end of time
The first time

Ever I saw
Your face
Your face
Your face
Your face
