Behind Blue Eyes

This song is by Elf and appears on the album Live At The Bank (1972).

This song is a cover of "Behind Blue Eyes" by 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
And if I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
And 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
