Yesterday when I was young
                       G7M                  C7M
The taste of love was sweet as rain upon my tongue
                   A chord diagramF#m7F#m7                  A chord diagramB7B7
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
                      A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramB minorBm             A chord diagramE7E7
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame
                       A chord diagramAm7Am7                             A chord diagramD7D7
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
                  G7M                        C7M
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
                     A chord diagramF#m7F#m7                      A chord diagramB7B7
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
               A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramE7E7
And only now I see how the years ran away
       A chord diagramAm7Am7            A chord diagramD7D7
Yesterday when I was young
              G7M                     C7M
So many happy songs were waiting to be sung
                A chord diagramAm7Am7                        A chord diagramB7B7
So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
                    A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramB minorBm        A chord diagramE7E7
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see
                   A chord diagramAm7Am7                           A chord diagramD7D7
I ran so fast that time and youth, at last, ran out
                      G7M                     C7M
I never stopped to think what life was all about
                A chord diagramAm7Am7                 A chord diagramB7B7
And ev'ry conversation I can now recall
                      A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramB minorBm               A chord diagramE7E7
Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all
      A chord diagramAm7Am7               A chord diagramD7D7
Yesterday the moon was blue
                  G7M                         C7M
And ev'ry crazy day brought something new to do
                A chord diagramF#m7F#m7                 A chord diagramB7B7
I used my magic age as if it were a wand
                  A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramB minorBm          A chord diagramE7E7
And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond
                    A chord diagramAm7Am7                       A chord diagramD7D7
The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
         G7M     C7M
And ev'ry flame I lit too quickly, quickly died
                        A chord diagramF#m7F#m7                    A chord diagramB7B7
The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
               A chord diagramE minorEm       A chord diagramB minorBm               A chord diagramE7E7
And only I am left on stage to end the play
                    A chord diagramAm7Am7                      A chord diagramD7D7
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
                     G7M                      C7M
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
                          A chord diagramAm7Am7              A chord diagramB7B7
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
         A chord diagramE minorEm   A chord diagramA minorAm   A chord diagramE minorEm
When I was young.
