The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

The Definite Article

When we say “the first time”, “the second time”, “the third time” etc we always say “the”

“The” is the definite article. European languages like Spanish German and French have a definite article but they have two or three definite articles because they have gender. English has one definite article, “the”.

Asian languages like Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian and Cambodian have no definite article.

Ever

We usually use “ever” in a question like:

“Have you ever been to the sea?”

We also use it in a negative sentence like “I have not ever seen the sun set in the sea.” “Not ever” can contract into “never”:

I have never seen anybody like you.
I have never met anyone like you.
I have never seen anything like you.

We don’t usually use “ever” in a positive sentence except when we want to show emotional power for example in a song or a poem, like in the Roberta Flack song:

The first time ever I saw your face.

Do you like the song?
