Behind blue eyes  Who

BEHIND BLUE EYES
The Who
  [Em]No one knows what it's [G]like, to be the [D]bad man,
To be the [C]sad man, be[A]hind blue eyes
[Em]No one knows what it's [G]like to be [D]hated,
To be [C]fated, to telling [A]only lies
CHORUS
But my [C]dre[D]ams, they aren't as [G]empty,
As my [C]conscience [D]seems to [E]be
I have [Bm]hours, only l[C]onely
My love is [D]vengeance that's never [A]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
CHORUS
  [D]When my fist [Bm]clenches [A]crack it [E]open
Before I [Bm]use it and [G]lose my [D]cool
When I [Bm]smile [A]tell me some [E]bad news
Before I [Bm]laugh and [A]act like a [E]fool
And if I swallow anything evil
Stick your finger down my throat
If I shiver please give me a blanket
Keep me warm let me wear your coat
No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes
