lyrics

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
The moon and stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless nights, my love,
To the dark and the endless nights.

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

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart beat so close to mine
And I knew that our joy, it would fill the earth
It would last till the end of time, my love
It would last, till the end of time, my love
It would last, till the end of time

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