The first time ever I saw your face

(Ewan MacColl)

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 night and the empty skies my love

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

The first time ever I lay you with me
And felt your heart so close to mine

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