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 endless sky.

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.

And 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
'til the end of time,
my love.

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