ROBERTA FLACK (1972) - The First Time ever I Saw your Face

 

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
My love
To the dark, and the endless skies

And 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
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
And it would last, til the end of time
My love

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