Yesterday When I Was Young

  		
   Am7         D7                                        
Yesterday when I was young  
               G7M              C7M 
The taste of love was sweet as rain upon my tongue 
            F#m7                  B7 
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game 
            Em       B7/13-      E7 
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame 
             Am7                    D7 
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned  
          G7M                    C7M  
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand 
             F#m7                B7 
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day, 
        Em         B7/13-    E7 
And only now I see how the years ran away 
   Am7         D7                                
Yesterday when I was young  
          G7M               C7M 
So many happy songs were waiting to be sung 
        Am7                B7 
So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me, 
          Em         B7/13-   E7 
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see 
               Am7                 D7                                        
I ran so fast that time and youth, at last, ran out  
           G7M                C7M 
I never stopped to think what life was all about 
          Am7            B7 
And ev'ry conversation I can now recall 
              Em     B7/13-       E7 
Concerned it self with me, and nothing else at all 
   Am7          D7                                  
Yesterday the moon was blue  
                      G7M              C7M 
And every crazy day brought something new to do 
          F#m7            B7 
I used my magic age as if it were a wand 
          Em      B7/13-       E7 
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond 
          Am7                  D7                                       
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride  
       G7M     C7M   
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died 
               F#m7             B7 
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away 
         Em    B7/13-       E7 
And only I am left on stage to end the play 
             Am7              D7                                                
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung  
             G7M                  C7M 
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue 
               Am7          B7 
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday  
   Em    Am   Em 
When I was young
