Capo on 1st fret

[intro]
Gsus4
Gm                                    Bb                   F
No one knows what it's like to be the bad man
                  Ebadd9      Csus2
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

              Ebadd9      F      F/A          Bb
But my dreams, 
                          Bb      Bbsus4  Bb
they aren't as empty
              Ebadd9      F               G   Gsus4
As my conscience seems to be
            Dm               Eb   
I have hours, only lonely
                      F                Fsus4                  Csus2
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

G                        Dm          C 
When my fist clenches crack it open
G            Dm            Bb           F
Before I use it and lose my cool
F              Dm    C                    F
When I   smile tell me some bad news
F              Dm            C             G
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

D///  C/ Bb/  F//    D/C

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