The First Time
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 lips
I felt the earth move in my arms
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 close to mine
I felt a joy to fill the earth
And would last till the end of time, my love
And would last till the end of time
