Yesterday, When I Was Young:Julio Iglesias.
Album - Starry Night - 1990.

      Am7             D7
Yesterday, when I was young, 
                      GM7                    CM7
the taste of life was sweet, as rain upon my tongue,
                     Cm                   B7
I teased at life, as if it were a foolish game, 
                    Em         B+             E7
the way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame.

                      Am7                            D7
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned, 
                GM7                        CM7
I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand, 
                      Cm                         B7
I lived by night, and shunned the naked light of day, 
                Em           B+        E7
and only now, I see, how the years ran away.

      Am7             D7
Yesterday, when I was young, 
              GM7                      CM7
so many happy songs were waiting to be sung, 
                Am7                        B7
so many wayward pleasures lay in store for me, 
                     Em           B+         E7
and so much pain, my dazzled eyes refused to see.
                   Am7                         D7
I ran so fast that time, and youth at last ran out, 
                   GM7                       CM7
I never stopped to think, what life, was all about, 
                Am7                 B7
and every conversation, I can now recall,
                      Em      B+              E7
concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all.

      Am7               D7
Yesterday, the moon was blue, 
                GM7                           CM7
and every crazy day, brought something new to do, 
                Cm                   B7
I used my magic age, as if it were a wand, 
                  Em         B+          E7
and never saw the waste, and emptiness beyond.
                   Am7                        D7
The game of love I played, with arrogance and pride,
                  GM7                       CM7
And every flame I lit, too quickly, quickly died,
                        Cm                        B7
the friends I made, all seemed, somehow, to drift away, 
              Em       B+                E7
and only I am left, on stage, to end the play.

                  Am7                        D7
There are so many songs in me, that won't be sung,
                  GM7                     CM7
I feel the bitter taste, of tears upon my tongue,
                      Am7                 B7
the time has come for me to pay for yesterday..
           Em    Am Em
when I was young.
