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…
— Charles Aznavour
I first heard this song sung by Dusty Springfield, and as is so often the case, the first version I hear remains my favourite.
