Yesterday When I Was Young  Dusty Springfield

Yesterday When I Was Young
Yester[Dm]day when I was [G]young,
The taste of life was [C]sweet as rain upon my [F]tongue
I teased at [Dm]life as if it were a foolish [E]game
The way the evening [Am]breeze may tease the candle flame
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the time ran away
Chorus:
Yester[Dm]day when I was [G]young
So many lovely [C]songs were waiting to be [F]sung
So many wild p[Dm]leasures lay in store for [E]me
And so much [Am]pain my eyes refused to see
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
I never stopped to think what life was all about
And every conversation that I can now recall
Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
And every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died
The friends I made all somehow seemed to slip away
And only now I'm left alone to end the play, yeah
Chorus
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
When I was young
