Before the World Was Made (Van Morrison)

If I paint the lashes dark And the eyes more bright And your lips more scarlet Ask if it'll all be right And it's mirror after mirror No vanities displayed You're just looking for the face you had Before the world was made Before the world was made Before the world was made And if I look upon you now As though I have my view With the earth beneath your feet And heaven up above Would you think me cruel After everything's been said You're only looking for the face you had Before the world was made Before the world was made Before the world was made And if I paint the lashes dark And your eyes more bright And your lips more scarlet Ask if it'll all be right And it's mirror after mirror No vanities displayed I'm just looking for the face you had Before the world was made Before the world was made Before the world was made Your original face Before time and space Your original face Before time and space Your original, original face Before the world was made Before the world was made Before the world was made
