lyrics to The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face) / The Kingston Trio
The First Time
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.
