"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 the stars were gifts
You gave to the dark and the endless skies

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 then at my command
My love

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
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face
