Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Oh, you're a hard one,
These things that are pleasin' you,

She'll beat you if she's able.
Now it seems to me, some fine things,
But you only want the things that you can't get.
Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger,
And freedom, oh freedom,
Your prison is walking,

The sky won't snow, the sun won't shine
You're loosin' all your highs and lows

Come down from your fences, and open the gate
You better let somebody love you,
You better let somebody love you,
