Music Im Feeling - Chinua Hawk




His voice is absolutely beautiful. Today I felt my BP maybe high du2 all these cold/flu things I've been drugging myself with so I started to play his music...to soothe me. I hope you like him...

check him out at:
Chinua Hawk OR My Space OR You Tube

I love this song...It was made popular by Roberta Flack...but was written originally in the late 1950s. Below are the lyrics..the way he sang it (slightly different from the original)



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 empty skies, my love,

To the dark and the empty skies.

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move through my hand
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
