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 hand
Like the trembling heart
Of a captive bird that was there at my command, my love
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 till the end of time, my love

And it would last till the end of time, my love
The first time ever I saw your face
