    This is my first tab, btw so here it is

[Verse 1]
EM                      G             D                 C         A     
No one knows what its like  to be the bad man, to be the sad man, behind blue eyes

EM                      G            D            C      A             
No one knows what its like to be hated  to be faded  to telling only lies

       C     D               G           C           D       E
But my dreams they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be.
       B           C                    D                   A
I have hours only lonely my love is vengeance thats never free.
[Verse 2]
EM                     G                   D           C              A
No one knows what its like to feel these feelings like do and I blame you
EM                     G              D                C                 
No one bites back as hard on there anger none of my pain and woe can show


  E      B         A          E             B         G         D
If my fist clenches crack it open before I use it and loose my cool
        B        A         D                B               A           E    
If I smile please tell me some bad news before I laugh and act like a fool
E        B         A             E         B     G     D           
If i swallow anything evil put your finger down my throat
        B         A         D            B     A                      E
If i shiver please hand me a blanket keep me worm let me wear your coat

EM                       G              D                C       A       
No one knows what its like to be the bad man to be the sad man behind blue eyes
