Yesterday When I Was Young  Julio Iglesias

Yester[Dm7]day, when I was [G7]young,
the taste of life was [CM7]sweet, as rain upon my [FM7]tongue,
I teased at life, as [Fm]if it were a foolish [E7]game,
the way the evening [Am]breeze may [E+]tease a candle [A7]flame.
The thousand dreams I [Dm7]dreamed, the splendid things I [G7]planned,
I always built, [CM7]alas, on weak and shifting [FM7]sand,
I lived by night, and [Fm]shunned the naked light of [E7]day,
and only now, I [Am]see, how the [E+]years ran [A7]away.
Yester[Dm7]day, when I was [G7]young,
so many happy [CM7]songs were waiting to be [FM7]sung,
so many wayward [Dm7]pleasures lay in store for [E7]me,
and so much pain, my [Am]dazzled eyes [E+]refused to [A7]see.
I ran so fast that [Dm7]time, and youth at last ran [G7]out,
I never stopped to [CM7]think, what life, was all [FM7]about,
and every conver[Dm7]sation, I can now re[E7]call,
concerned itself with [Am]me, and [E+]nothing else at [A7]all.
Yester[Dm7]day, the moon was [G7]blue,
and every crazy [CM7]day, brought something new to [FM7]do,
I used my magic [Fm]age, as if it were a [E7]wand,
and never saw the [Am]waste, and [E+]emptiness be[A7]yond.
The game of love I [Dm7]played, with arrogance and [G7]pride,
And every flame I [CM7]lit, too quickly, quickly [FM7]died,
the friends I made, all [Fm]seemed, somehow, to drift [E7]away,
and only I am [Am]left, on [E+]stage, to end the [A7]play.
There are so many [Dm7]songs in me, that won't be [G7]sung,
I feel the bitter [CM7]taste, of tears upon my [FM7]tongue,
the time has come for [Dm7]me to pay for yester[E7]day..
when I was [Am]young.[Dm]   [Am]
A nineties smash from Kraziekhat.
