    Yesterday when I was young
    The taste of life was sweet like rain upon my tongue,
    I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
    The way an evening breeze would tease a 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 years have run away
    Yesterday when I was young
    There were so many songs that waited to be sung,
    So many wild pleasures that lay in store for me
    And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see,
    I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out and
    I never stopped to think what life was all about,
    And every conversation that I can recall
    Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all.
    Yesterday the moon was blue
    And every crazy day brought something new to do,
    And I used my magic age as if it were a wand
    And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond,
    The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
    And every flame I lit so quickly, quickly died
    The friends I made all seemed, somehow, to drift away
    And only I am left on stage to end the play.
    Yesterday when I was young
    There were so many songs that waited to be sung,
    So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
    And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see,
    There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
    Cause I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
    And the time has come for me to pay for yesterday
    When I was young.
