Carmen Ezgeta

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 night and the empty skies my love
       To the night 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

performed:     Roberta Flack
