Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out riding fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one but I know that you 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
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?
The 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)
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
