Yesterday When I Was Young

(Charles Asnavour)

      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         B+             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           B+        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             B+        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      B+               E7 
Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all 
      Am7               D7                
Yesterday the moon was blue 
                  G7M                         C7M 
And ev'ry crazy day brought something new to do 
                F#m7                 B7 
I used my magic age as if it were a wand 
                  Em         B+          E7 
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond 
                    Am7                       D7                              
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride 
         G7M     C7M 
And ev'ry flame I lit too quickly, quickly died 
                        F#m7                    B7 
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away 
               Em       B+               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
