Song Lyric Sunday: The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Image contains: me, smiling.Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati. The song I’m featuring was popular when I was growing up. Not into romance like other girls, I wasn’t impressed. Now, it’s the only one I can think of that fits Helen’s theme this week of “first.”

I think my late husband Bill, who was totally blind, fell in love with my voice when he first heard it. For me, it wasn’t the first time I saw his face that did it. You can read more of our story in My Ideal Partner. Now here’s the song.

Roberta Flack–The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
Lyrics Courtesy of Googgle

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