"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" as written by and Ewan Maccoll....
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 empty skies my love,
Dark and empty skies.

The first time ever I kissed your lips
I felt the earth move 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
I felt your heart beat close to mine,
And I knew 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 stars were the gifts you gave,
To the dark and empty skies my love,
Dark and empty skies.
