BEHIND BLUE EYES
The Who
 
Em                     G               D
No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man,
          C          A
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes
Em                     G          D
No one knows what it's like to be hated,
      C                 A
To be fated, to telling only lies
 
CHORUS
       C  D                   G
But my dreams, they aren't as empty,
      C          D        E
As my conscience seems to be
       Bm           C
I have hours, only lonely
           D                      A
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
 
CHORUS
 
D            Bm       A        E
When my fist clenches crack it open
         Bm         G       D
Before I use it and lose my cool
       Bm    A            E
When I smile tell me some bad news
         Bm        A          E
Before I laugh and act like a 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

To be fated, to telling only lies
