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.
