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 endless sky, my love

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like a 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
And last 'till the end of time
