VERSE
Em                     G
No one knows what it's like 
          D                  Cadd9
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
  A
Behind blue eyes

Em                     G
No one knows what it's like 
      D            Cadd9
To be hated, to be fated
           A
To telling only lies


CHORUS
        C   D                    G      Gsus4 G
But my drea-eams, they aren't as empty
      C          D        E  Esus4 E
As my conscience seems to be
       Bm          C
I have hours, only lonely
           D                      Asus2
My love is vengeance that's never free


VERSE
Em                     G
No one knows what it's like 
              D                Cadd9
to feel these feelings, like I do
            A
And I blame you

Em                   G
No one bites back as hard 
         D                 Cadd9
On their anger, none of my pain and woe
         A
Can show through


CHORUS
        C   D                    G      Gsus4 G
But my drea-eams, they aren't as empty
      C          D        E  Esus4 E
As my conscience seems to be
       Bm         C
I have hours only lonely
           D                      Asus2
My love is vengeance that's never free


MIDDLE 8
| E | Bm A | E | Bm A |

E              Bm       A         [ E ]
  When my fist clenches crack it open
E          Bm         G       D
  Before I use it and lose my cool
       Bm    A            D
When I smile tell me some bad news
         Bm        A         | E | Bm A |
Before I laugh and act like a fool
E          Bm      A        E
  And if I swallow anything evil
         Bm     G       D
Put your finger down my throat
         Bm            A         D
And if I shiver please give me a blanket
        Bm          A        | E | Bm A | E | Bm A |
Keep me warm let me wear your coat

VERSE (coda)
Em                     G
No one knows what it's like 
          D                  Cadd9
To be the bad man, to be the sad man
  A    A    A
