Chenoweth, Kristin - Desperado Lyrics

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out riding fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
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, driving you home
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 winter time?
The skies won't snow and 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 away, goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences and 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

    Breathtaking, one of the best covers I’ve ever heard.

    Saved the best song for the end, eh? Thank you for these songs, they were wonderful.

  3. Kristin Chenoweth

    Thank you for watching, my loves! Listen to the full ‘For The Girls’ album everywhere now:

  4. Mike McEwan

    That was an awesome song. I saw you today on Kelly and Ryan minus Ryan but Anderson Cooper in his place. You were awesome singing I will Always Love You.

  5. NorthEndGirl OfTheSixties

    One of my very favourite Eagles songs! Love Kristin’s version!

  6. Nguyễn Nam

    I think the description is a bit wrong, isn't the name "Desperado"? Why does it say "Crazy"?
