Behind Blue Eyes

The Who

 No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man, to be the sad man, behind blue eyes
 No one knows what it's like to be hated, to be fated, to telling only lies

       But my dreams, they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be
       I have hours, only lonely, My love is vengeance that's never free

 No one knows what it's like to feel these feelings like I do, and I blame you
 No one bites back as hard on their anger, none of my pain and woe, can show through


 When my fist clenches crack it open, before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile tell me some bad news before I laugh and act like a fool
 And if I swallow anything evil, put your finger down my throat
If I shiver please give me a blanket, keep me warm let me wear your coat

E E Bm A
E E Bm A
H x8 GG DD

 No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes

captaingary (report comment to admin):
when my fist clenches starts with a "e" and the "e' in tell me some bad news is a "d".  good job though.
miki dread (report comment to admin):
The C in verse and chorus should be Cadd9 but the song is pretty accurate otherwise
disco_ks (report comment to admin):
Actually ,beginner dude, it is fated.
roman777 (report comment to admin):
Instead of 'stick your finger...' it should be 'put your finger...'  I corrected
dada (report comment to admin):
