Desperado
Why don’t you come to your senses
You’ve been out riding fences for so long now
Oh you’re a hard one
But I know that you’ve got your reasons
These things that are pleasing you will hurt you somehow

*****

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
The queen of hearts is always your best bet
Well it seems to me some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the things that you can’t get

*****

Desperado
you know you ain’t getting younger
Your pain and your hunger are driving you home
And freedom, oh freedom
Well that’s just some people talking
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

*****

Don’t your feet get cold in the wintertime
Sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the nighttime from the day
You’re losing all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away

*****

Desperado
Why don’t you come to your senses
Come down from your fences
Open the gate
It may be raining
But there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
Let somebody love you
Before it’s too late
