Yesterday when i was young

Various Artists

 GmC7Fmaj7
Yesterday when I was young, the taste of life was sweet as
 BbEm7
rain upon my tongue, I teased at life as if it were a foolish
 A7Dm
 game, the way an evening breeze may tease a candle flame.

 GmC7
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned, I
 Fmaj7Bb
always built alas, on weak and shifting sand, I lived by night
 Em7A7Dm
and shunned the naked light of day, and only now I see how the
years ran away.

 GmC7Fmaj7
Yesterday when I was Young, so many drinking songs were
 BbGmA7
waiting to be sung, so many wild pleasures lay in store for me,
 Dm
and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see.

 GmC7
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out, I never stopped
 Fmaj7BbGm
to think what life was all about, and every conversation I
 A7Dm
can now recall, concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all.

 GmC7Fmaj7
Yesterday the moon was blue, and every crazy day brought
 BbEm7A7
something new to do, I used my magic age as if it were an wand,
 Dm
and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond.

 GmC7
The game of love I played, with arrogance and pride, and every flame
 Fmaj7Bb
lit too quickly, quickly died, the friends I made all
 Em7A7Dm
 seemed, some how to drift away, and only I am left, on stage to
end the play.

 GmA7
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung, I feel the bitter
 DmGGm
 taste, of tears upon my tongue, the time has come for me pay for
 DmA7GmDmGm
