Dm                G         C            C   G/B  
   The first time   ever I saw your face
Am                    Em                F
   I thought the sun rose in your eyes
            C               G     C
And the moon and the stars    were the gifts you gave
   Gm                C
To the dark and the empty skies.

Dm                     G          C               C  G/B
    And the first time   ever I kissed your mouth
Am                   Em               F
   I felt the earth move in my hands
              C          G  C
Like the trembling heart      of a captive bird
    Gm              C
That was there at my command, my love.

Gm                    C          F           F  C
   And the first time    ever I lay with you
Dm                     Am             Bb
   I felt your heart so close to mine
          F        C  F
And I knew our joy     would fill the earth
Cm                                     F
  And last and last and last till the end of time my love
Gm                        C   F          Eb
   The first time ever I saw   your face,  your face,
F           Eb           F
  Your face,   your face
