​The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

This song is by Caroline Lavelle and appears on the album Brilliant Midnight (2001).

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

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 'til the end of time, my love
It would last 'til the end of time, my love

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