Behind These Hazel Eyes

Album: Breakaway (2004)
Charted: 9 6
  • 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. >>

  • Jailene from K-town, Wa*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.
