Desperado

Why don't you come to your senses

You been out ridin' fences

For so long now

Oh, you're a hard one

But I know that you've got your reasons

These things that are pleasin' you

Can 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



Now it seems to me some fine things

Have been laid upon your table

But you only want the ones

That you can't get



Desperado

Oh you ain't gettin' no younger

Your pain and your hunger

They're drivin' you home



Freedom, Ah freedom

That's just some people talkin'

You're prisoners walkin'

Through this world all alone



Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine

It's hard to tell the night time

From the day



You're losin' all your highs and lows

Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away



Desperado

Why don't you come to your senses

Come down from your fences

Open the gate



It may be rainin'

But there's a rainbow above you

You better let somebody love you

You better let somebody love you

Before it's too late
