Lyrics

Desperado
Why don't you come to your senses
You've 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 will hurt you somehow

And 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
And 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 aint getting no younger
Your pain and your hunger
They're driving you home
And freedom, oh freedom
Well that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone

And 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
And losing all your highs and lows
Aint 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
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late
