Yesterday When I Was Young (昨日當我還年輕) - Dusty Springfield

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 happy 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

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

 

Yesterday when I was young

So many happy 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

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
