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
The first time ever I lay with you
I felt the earth move in my hand
I thought our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time, my love
And last till the end of time
