The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot


Gordon Lightfoot Lyrics

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Lyrics
The first time ever I saw your face, I thought the sun rose in your eyes
and the moon and the 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, I felt the earth turn 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 close to mine,
I thought our joy would fill the earth
And would last till the end of time my love, and would last till the end of time.
The first time ever I saw your face, I thought the sun rose in your eyes
and the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
to the dark and the empty skies my love, to the dark and the empty skies.
