Pete Townshend — Behind Blue Eyes lyrics

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 when 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
If I smile tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

And if I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
But if I shiver would you 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
