Dusty Springfield – Yesterday When I Was Young chords

Yesterday When I Was Young  

Dm GYesterday when I was young,
C FThe taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue
Dm EI teased at life as if it were a foolish game
AmThe 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 Chorus:
Dm GYesterday when I was young
C FSo many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
Dm ESo many wild pleasures lay in store for me
AmAnd 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 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 by: José Duarte jtduarte1@gmail.com
