The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Wednesday, 2 November 2011

 

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 
And felt your heart beat close to mine 
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird 
That was there at my command, my love 
That was there at my command. 

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 
It would last till the end of time my love 

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