Lyrics

Seems the love I've known Has always been The most destructive kind Guess that's why now I feel so old before my time 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 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 years ran away Yesterday, when I was young So many happy songs Were waiting to be sung Ao many wild 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 Concerns 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
