No one knows what it's like to be the bad ma-an
To be the sad man, behind blue eyes
And no one knows what it's like to be hate-ed
To be faded for telling only lies

But my dreams they are as empty why
As my conscience seems to be
I'll wait hours, a-always lonely why
My lover's vengeance, it's never free

And no one knows what it's like to feel these feelin's
Like I do, and I blame you
And no one bites back as hard in their anger
'Cause none of my pain and woe can show through

But my dreams, they are as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I wait hours, always lonely why
My lover's vengeance, it's never free

And life is clinches, 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
And if I swallow any fable
Stick your finger throat
When I shiver please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

And my love will never fade
And I love her more and more and more and more-ore

But my dreams, they are as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I wait hours, always lonely why
My lover's vengeance, it's never free

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