I'm a sucker for a good love song, but none has ever grabbed my heart and held it quite like Roberta Flack's Grammy-winning classic, "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"...
Leona Lewis did a beautiful cover of the song on her debut CD a few years ago...
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and stars were the gifts 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 mouth
And felt your heart beat close to mine
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love
That was there at my command.
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
It would last till the end of time my love
The first time ever I saw your face, your face,
your face, your face
