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 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
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 till the end of time my love
The first time ever I saw your face 
Your face, your face
