Leona Lewis – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face lyrics

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies my love

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move through my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love

The first time ever I lay with 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 love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

    This has been a fantastic song! It's somewhat like a love at first sight! This is definitely a song for someone who has been deeply inlove to his/her lover. It is spending every moment to your loved one full of passion and intimate love. It's as if every moment and time you spend with each other is a treasure! Short lyrics as it maybe but it captures every hearts of men. What a perfect and romantic love song!
