First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
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 the empty skies, my Lola,
To the dark and the empty skies.
The first time ever I kissed your mouth
And felt your heart beat close to mine
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my Lola
That was there at my command.
And the first time ever I held 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 Lola
It would last till the end of time my Lola
The first time ever I saw your face, your face,
your face, your face
