The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gift you gave
To the dark and the empty skies
My love, to the dark and the empty skies

The first time ever I kissed your lips
I felt the earth move in my arms
Like the trembling heart of a captive dove
That was there at my command
My love, that was there at my command

The first time ever I held you near
And felt your heart beat close to mine
I felt a joy to fill the earth
And last until the end of time
My love, and last till the end of time
Our love will last till the end of time

Songwriters
Williams, Larry / Miller, Lance / Smith, Gerald
