Outlaw

A new morning blessing, and you can’t get at it. Sun left hanging high up for your high-five hand And if you were desperate, you might try acting Something like a desperate man But all your dreams end the same They catch you out on the plains They take you out of your pain They say, “Outlaw, you had a good run But you’re caught, the game’s up. Outlaw, you had some fun, but your good times are done.” You lost your twenties somewhere out drinking, And you will find them any joint you look back through. But when you’re still empty, you might try thinking Less like some desperate fool But all your dreams end the same They catch you out on the plains And take you out of your pain, saying “Outlaw, you had a good run. But you’re caught, the game’s up. Outlaw you had some fun, but your good times are done.” All of your dreams end the same Hung out on the plains They took you out of your pain Saying, “Outlaw, you had a good run. But you’re caught, the game’s up.

Outlaw, you had some fun, but now your freedom has come. Now your freedom has come. Now your freedom has come.”
