The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack)


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.
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
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,
The first time ever I saw your face
your face your face your face
