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 stars were the gift you gave
To the dark and empty skies, my love
To the dark and empty skies

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

The first time ever I lay with you
And felt your heart beat over mine
I thought our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time, my love
And last till the end of time
