"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 the 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 hand
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, till the end of time, my love

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