    Bm         E       A
The first time, ever I saw your face
  F#m             C#m          A  D
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
        E            A
And the moon and the stars
                   E
Were the gifts you gave
       G                     A
To the dark, and the endless sky

My love
       G                     A
To the dark, and the endless skys

        Bm         E       A
And the first time, ever I kissed your mouth
  F#m            C#m        A  D
I felt the earth move in my hands
         E         A
Like the trembling heart
             E
Of a captive bird
         G         A
That was there, at my command

My love
         G         A
That was there, at my command

My love

        Bm         E       A
And the first time, ever I lay with you
  F#m             C#m         A  D
I felt your heart so close to mine
      E        A
And I knew our joy
               E
Would fill the earth
    G                     A
And last, till the end of time

My love

             G                     A
And it would last, till the end of time

My love

    Bm                 A E      A
The first time, ever I saw your face

     E
Your face
     A  D
Your face
E    D
Your face
