lyrics to Yesterday, When I Was Young (LP Version) / Dusty Springfield

Dusty Springfield
Yesterday When I Was Young

(charles aznavour / herbert kretzmer)
Spoken : somehow, it seems the love i knew was always the most destructive kind
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 the candle flame
The thousand dreams i dreamed
The splendid things i planned
I always built to last on weak and shifting sand
I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now i see how the time ran away
Yesterday when i was young
So many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my 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 that 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 somehow seemed to slip away
And only now i'm left alone to end the play, yeah
Oh, yesterday when i was young
So many, many songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my 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

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-In addition to hits such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" and "The Look of Love," which was on the soundtrack for the James Bond film <i>Casino Royale</i>, Springfield is known for the 1969 single "<a href="http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=3346">Son Of A Preacher Man</a>," from the album <b>Dusty in Memphis</b>. While the song was a hit, the album was a commercial flop. The album was originally supposed to be recorded in Memphis with session players who had played with Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding, but Springfield was so intimidated by her surroundings that she refused to sing there. Her vocals were done in New York and added in later. She was not happy with the final results, but <i>Rolling Stone</i> magazine ranked <b>Dusty in Memphis</b> as #89 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
