Yesterday When I Was Young - Matt Monro

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

 

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 drinking 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

 

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
