Desperado

The sun beats down from the highest point in the sky.

There’s a bounty on my head but a girl on my mind.

We were outlaws in love, breaking the rules of the game.  Partners in crime caught up in this new frontier.  Who knew this runaway train would eventually catch up to us.  When it comes down to renegades, someone will eventually get hurt.  Now we’re left trying to see eye to eye, in a standoff at high noon.  My hands shake with terrified anticipation, because I know I can’t pull the trigger.

There will be no riding off into the sunset today.

Just the sunset.
