First Time Ever I Saw Your Face Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American IV: The Man Comes Around

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 endless sky, my love.
And 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.

And the first time ever I lay with you,
I felt your heart so close to mine.
And I know our joy would fill the earth,
And last till the end of time, my love.

The first time ever I saw your face.

Why don't you finish the song. What is the deal. I really like the way Johnny Cash sings the song. At least finish writing the song.
