Cuando era mas joven


Explanation:
Estoy seguro que se refiere a la famosa canción de Carpenters:

"When I was young I listen to the radio waiting for my favorite song..."

"Cuando era joven (o más joven) escuchaba la radio esperando por mi canción favorita..."

Espero que te sirva, suerte y saludos!!!

cuando era más joven yo...


Explanation:
The second I most likely needs to be said as you continue with the sentence.

i.e. when I was younger I was very small = cuando era joven yo era muy pequeña

Just remembered a song of Joaquin Sabina (a Spanish Bob Dilan ;)which begins with the lines:

Cuando era más joven viajé en sucios trenes que iban hacia el norte

En mi juventud...


Explanation:
Depende del contexto y del estilo. En un estilo literario sería: "En mi juventud...."

Se entiende que cuando era más joven es que estaba en mi juventud.

Pero sin contexto ni estilo sólo Alá lo sabe.

Espero que te valga
