Verse:
Em                     G6 
No one knows what it's like 
          Dsus2
To be the bad man 
          Cadd9
To be the sad man 
  Asus2
Behind blue eyes 
    Em                      G6
And no one knows what it's like 
      Dsus2
To be hated 
      Cadd9
To be fated 
           Asus2
To telling only lies 

Chorus:
       C  D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty 
      C          D        Em    
As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          C
I have hours, only lonely 
            D              
My love is vengeance 
              Asus2
That's never free 
 
Verse:
Em                     G6 
No one knows what it's like
              Dsus2
To feel these feelin's 
       Cadd9
Like I do 
            Asus2
And I blame you 
  Em			G6
No one bites back as hard
          Dsus2
On their anger 
           Cadd9
None of my pain an' woe
           Asus2
Can show through 

Chorus:
       C  D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty 
      C          D        Em    
As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          C
I have hours, only lonely 
            D              
My love is vengeance 
              Asus2
That's never free 

Bridge:
  Asus2   Em     G6      Dsus2  
Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it
   Cadd9                Asus2    
Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it
  Asus2   Em     G6      Dsus2  
Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it
   Cadd9                Asus2    
Discover    L.I.M.P     Say it

Verse:
Em                     G6 
No one knows what it's like
          Dsus2
To be mistreated 
         Cadd9
To be defeated 
   Asus2
Behind blue eyes 
    Em			  G6
And no one knows how to say
		Dsus2
That they're sorry 
	    Cadd9
An' don't worry 
         Asus2
I'm not telling lies 

Chorus:
       C  D
But my dreams 
               G  
They aren't as empty 
      C          D        Em    
As my conscience seems to be 
       Bm          C
I have hours, only lonely 
            D              
My love is vengeance 
              Asus2
That's never free 

Verse:
Em                     G6 
No one knows what it's like

To be the sad man 
  Asus2
Behind blue eyes

    Transpose +5 for easier version

  2. I couldn’t get that asus chord, but A sounds close enough

    • an easier alternative to the asus chord is “pointer finger on the 4th fret 3rd string, and middle finger on 5th fret 4th string” I use this chord, sound pretty good too!
