I loved you before your eyes were blue
Before your face belonged to you;
Before I heard your voice, I knew
The love I never knew was you.
Long days and nights I yearned for you
Without a name or shape for you;
And when at last I met you
I knew I had always loved you.
And when I lay in bed with you
Enchanted by the night and you;
Holding close the naked you
I knew I'd always be with you.
