SHIRLEY BASSEY


Yesterday When I Was Young Lyrics

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 the candle flame

The thousand dreams I dreamed
The splendid things I planned
I always built alas 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 lovely songs were waiting to be sung
So many wayward 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 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

Yesterday when i was young
so many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
so many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see

Yesterday when i was young
so many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
so many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
and so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see

Yesterday when i was young
so many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
so many wayward pleasures
