Iglesias, Julio - Yesterday When I Was Young Lyrics



Yesterday when I was young
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue.
I played at life as if it were a foolish game
The way the evening breeze plays with a candle flame.
The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sands
I lived by night, declined the naked light of day
And only now I see the years that ran away
Yesterday when I was young
So many crazy songs were waiting to be sung
So many crazy times that lay in store for me
And so much pain inside, my heart 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 that I can now recall
Had all to do 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 games of love I played with arrogance and pride
And every flame I lit, so 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

    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.

    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...
