Roberta Flack 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 endless skies My Love.
And the first time, ever I kissed your mouth I felt the earth move in my hands Like the trembling heart Of a captive bird That was there, at my command My Love. 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. And last, 'til the end of time. My love.
The first time, ever I saw Your face Your face Your fa-ace Your face.
