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 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
You know 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

And freedom
Oh, freedom
Well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking
Through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold
In the winter time?
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 feeling 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 (Let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late...

    i believe this song is about someone who things they don't need anyone else, y'know sorta a tough person, and they think they're free but they are really trapped in their own loneliness and they have to come to their senses and find someone for themselves
