Yesterday, When I Was Young (Roy Clark Cover) Şarkı Sözleri (Lyrics)

Şarkıcı Mike Sinatra


Yesterday, when I was young
The taste of life was sweet
As rain upon my tongue
I teased at life
As if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze
May tease a candle flame


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 ran away


Yesterday, when I was young
So many happy songs
Were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures
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
I never stopped to think
What life was all about
And every conversation
I can now recall
Concerned itself with me
And nothing else at all


Yesterday, the moon was blue
And every crazy day
Brought something new to do
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
Too quickly, quickly died
The friends I made
All seemed, somehow, to drift away
And only I am left
On stage to end the play


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
