Intro - C  Em  F  G  x4

C                       F                      G            C
When you were young and your heart was free
C               F                  G        C
I'd run and meet you and rush to see
C                     F           G            C
Just over the wall where the clouds roll by
C                       F            G           C
And age and chance and tears were far away


Em    F         G          C
Oh if heaven wouldn't see
Em    F       G   C
Light lovers so distantly
Em           F                G          C
Then look today at this love so free
F
When you are young again

When you were young and your eyes are old
Then all your treasures my hand can stroke
And all your memories and your sorrows are loosed
And blown and left so your lips may be touched

Oh if heaven wouldn't see
Light lovers so distantly
Then look today at this love so free
When you are young again

C    Em    F     G  x8

Oh if heaven wouldn't see
That lovers so distantly
Then look today at this love so free
When you are young again
