Behind Blue Eyes
The Chieftains 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, 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

Only Daltrey can sing this song like this.

Sinuhe Ancelmo

He is an immortal!

Nadège MAILLET-MARTIN

That's true.

J

Roger daltrey...one of the best voices of his era..

Linda Dixon

NEVER saw this before! How AMAZING that Roger is with the Chieftains! BEAUTIFUL!

michael baxter

This is already a beautiful song but this version with a sprinkling of Irish magic is superb so powerful what a delight

Bob Wobbabble

Nobody exposed themselves like Townshend. IMO he was the greatest songwriter ever. Better than Dylan or even Robert Hunter.

Douglas Kirby L

If I could sing like either Paul Rogers, Robert Plant or Roger Daltrey, I would choose Daltrey in a minute.

oliver o neill

Dalry is the one for me

Pon Raul

It’s tough choice between Roger Daltrey and Danny Bowes for me.
