Guitar chords with lyrics
INTRO: E minorEm F#7F#7 B minorBm E minorEm A7A7 It seems the love I've known D MajorD G+G Has always been the most destructive kind E minorEm I guess that's why now F#7F#7 I feel so old B minorBm Before my time
Chorus: E minorEm A7A7 Yesterday when I was young D MajorD G+G the taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue E minorEm F#7F#7 I teased at life as if it were a foolish game B minorBm the way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame Verse: E minorEm A7A7 The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned D MajorD G+G I always built to last on weak and shifting sand E minorEm F#7F#7 I lived by night and shunned the naked light of the day B minorBm and only now I see how the years ran away
Chorus: E minorEm A7A7 Yesterday when I was young D MajorD G+G so many happy songs were waiting to be sung, E minorEm F#7F#7 so many wild pleasures lay in store for me B minorBm and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see Verse: E minorEm A7A7 I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out D MajorD G+G I never stopped to think what life was all about E minorEm F#7F#7 and every conversation I can now recall B minorBm concerned itself with me and nothing else at all Instrumental Break: E minorEm A7A7 D MajorD G+G E minorEm F#7F#7 B minorBm Chorus: E minorEm A7A7 Yesterday the moon was blue D MajorD G+G and every crazy day brought something new to do E minorEm F#7F#7 I used my magic age as if it were a wand B minorBm and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond E minorEm A7A7 The game of love I played with arrogance and pride D MajorD G+G and every flame I lit too quickly quickly died E minorEm F#7F#7 The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away B minorBm and only I am left on stage to end the play E minorEm A7A7 There are so many songs in me that won't be sung D MajorD G+G I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue E minorEm F#7F#7 B minorBm The time has come for me to pay for yesterday when I was young
