Yesterday When I Was Young Chords

Yesterday When I Was Young  

      Dm             G
Yesterday when I was young, 
                      C		            F
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue
  	    Dm 				 E
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
The way the evening 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

      Dm             G
Yesterday when I was young
               C		        F
So many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
  	      Dm 			E
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much 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


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
