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

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

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

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

No one knows what it s like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes
