Desperado, you ain't gettin 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 walking through this world all alone
And don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow, 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 rainin, but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
Before it's too late.
