Eddy Arnold - Yesterday When I Was Young слова песни


(Herbert Kretzmer - Charles Aznavour)

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 a las 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 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 day.

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...
