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 night and the empty skies my love To the night and the empty skies The first time ever I kissed your mouth I felt the earth turn in my hand Like the trembling heart of a captive bird That was there at my command my love That was there at my command The first time ever I lay with you And felt your heart beat close to mine I thought our joy would fill the earth And would last 'till the end of time my love And would last 'till the end of time 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 night and the empty skies my love To the night and the empty skies ***** LA PREMIÈRE FOIS (E. McColl / E. Marnay) Nana Mouskouri Ce jour-là pour la première fois En voyant tes yeux devant moi J'ai compris soudain d'où venait l'amour Et pourtant tu ne disais rien, mon coeur Et pourtant tu ne disais rien Ce jour-là pour la première fois Le coeur me battait dans les doigts Comme on est jeune au premier amour Ce jour-là, j'ai prié pour toi, mon coeur Ce jour-là, j'ai prié pour toi Je savais que la première fois Serait la dernière pour moi Et j'ai envie de parler au ciel Dites-lui de m'aimer toujours, mon Dieu Dites-lui de m'aimer toujours La première est la dernière fois *****
