Behind blue eyes      (midi)

 

    Em ~ ~   Em                                  G                    D

1.                 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

    And no one knows what it's like to be hated,

              C                      A            

    to be fated, to telling only lies.  

 

               C - D                              G                   C                 D           E

But my dre…ams, they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be.

            Bm            C                           D                                    A     ~ ~

I have hours, only lonely, my love is vengeance that's never free.

 

    Em                                 G                         D

2. No one knows what it's like to feel these feelings,

             C                        A

    like I do, and I blame you.

    Em                               G                  D

    No one bites back as hard on their anger,

                        C                                        A

    none of my pain and woe can show through.

 

+ CHORUS    + Em - Bm - A      Em - Bm - A

 

Em                     Bm             A              - Em            Bm            G            D

    When my fist clenches, crack it open,     before I use it and lose my cool.

                    Bm  A                    D

    When I smile, tell me some bad news,

                  Bm           A              Em   - Bm - A     

    before I laugh and act like a fool.

Em              Bm      A           Em                Bm      G               D

    And if I swallow anything evil, put your finger down my throat,

                 Bm                  A               D

    and if I shiver, please give me a blanket,

                    Bm                  A             Em    - Bm - A    Em - Bm - A  

    keep me warm, let me wear your coat.

 

    + Bm - A - D (3x)    - Bm   - A    + repeat verse 1, lines 1 & 2
