Song Description

This is a story of a gunfighter who is feeling trapped.

Lyrics

Desperado
=========
DESPERADO

I stepped in the morning sun
In my hand I held a gun
I was fast or so they say
I didn't think it'd end this way

DESPERADO

Just a lad of 17
I grew up hungry cold and mean
All I want is to be free but the dead
they follow me

I'd put my guns up on a shelf
But I can't run from myself
Every night I have a dream of
dead faces I have seen

DESPERADO

just a lad of 17 , I grew up hungry,
cold and mean , all I want is to be free but the dead
they follow me

with my back against the wall , I listen for
bootsteps in the hall , in the night I lie in
bed with a Colt beneath my head

DESPERADO

just a lad of 17 ,I grew up hungry, cold and
mean, all I want is to be free but the dead
they follow me

Every night I lie and wait for the gods
to seal my fate and in my struggle to survive.
I wind up more dead than alive

DESPERADO

just a lad of 17 I grew up hungry, cold and mean,
all I want is to be free but the dead they follow me
