Behind These Hazel Eyes


Kelly Clarkson

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is a true song about Clarkson's ex boyfriend, who broke up with her and got married a month later. The song is about being hurt by someone you were once close to.
The song almost didn't make it to the album. It had different lyrics, but Kelly thought of new lyrics at the last minute.
The video is based heavily on Clarkson's own personal experiences. She is credited with the concept and ideas behind it; it was directed by Joseph Kahn. The video did very well on MTV's TRL, becoming a regular #1 request. Finally, fifty days later, on August 3, 2005, the video was retired from the Top 10 countdown. Clarkson holds the record for the longest stay by a female at #1 with 33 days, nearly surpassing the record previously set by The Backstreet Boys. (thanks, Donovan Berry - El Dorado, AR)

*sigh* This song is amazing. I love it because it so perfectly describes my last...breakup? Well, I'm not even sure it was a breakup so much as just a break. Breakdown? I know that's what I did. There are very few guys I have met who don't anger me in some way shape or form and the part that really pisses me off? I can't even be mad at my "ex" cuz he's been amazingly sweet about the whole friggin thing. Stupid boys. Ugh.

I love this song. It describes me and how I feel about this one guy. He doesn't know how much my heart breaks when he's not around. I like the lyrics.

I think this song has a nice meaning behind it. Its fascinating that even though her heart is broken by the guy she loves, he wont see her cry about it.

This song is magnificent! Not the meaning behind it, I mean. But it sounds good. And her boyfriend does sound like a p***k!!! Totally agree!

This song is about how kelly's boyfriend breaks up with her but she will stay strong and not let him see how much it hurts her. "You wont get to see the tears I cry..." meaning she is hiding all her feelings inside.

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
