Carpenters – Desperado lyrics
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 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 getting no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're driving you home
Freedom? Oh, freedom
That's just some people talking
You're a prisoner 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 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, and open the gate
It may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late
