Carpenters Desperado Lyrics

Last updated: 02/14/2011 11:00:00 AM

Why don’t you come to your senses?
You’ve been out ridin’ fences… for so long now
Ahh, you’re a hard one
But I know that you’ve got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
No, 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

Ahhhh you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re driving you home
Freedom, ahh 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 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

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

You better let somebody love you…
Before it’s too late.
