    Desperado is one of my favourite songs since the first time I bought the album. To me, making a video with it is incredibly difficult, because it's such a complex song. We could say it's talking about (and to) a person who's always been alone, and needs to open his heart to love. It's perfetct for Subaru-kun, isn't it? ;) Just remember that this is *my* interpretation of this song.


    Desperado, why donít you come to your senses?
    You been out ridiní fences for so long now
    Oh, youíre a hard one
    I know that you got your reasons
    These things that are pleasiní you
    Can hurt you somehow

    Doní you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
    Sheíll beat you if sheís able
    You know the queen of heats 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 canít get

    Desperado, oh, you ainít gettiní no youger
    Your pain and your hunger, theyíre driviní you home
    And freedom, oh freedom well, thatís just some people talkiní
    Your prison is walking through this world all alone

    Donít your feet get cold in the winter time?
    The sky wonít snow and the sun wonít shine
    Itís hard to tell the night time from the day
    Youíre loosiní all your highs and lows
    Ainít it funny how the feeling goes away?

    Desperado, why donít you come to your senses?
    Come down from your fences, open the gate
    It may be raininí, but thereís a rainbow above you
    You better let somebody love you, before itís too late


    A couple of notes:
    - "Oh, you're a hard one" is a quote by Fuuma in the manga, volume 12, just before he starts fighting with Subaru, and...well... you know the rest! :)
    - "These things that are pleasiní you / Can hurt you somehow" ... me, I decided to put the "eye" scene, because of the strong importance it has for Subaru, especially in the manga. Well, remember that when I make a video I'm always thinking of the manga, and just "using" the anime...
    - "Now it seems to me, some fine things / Have been laid upon your table", I'm not a Subaru/Kamui shipper, but the importance of their relationship in the manga is obvious. Clamp often make us see how much they look alike... maybe Kamui will be the one who can get Subaru back from becoming a Dragon of the Earth... what I wanted to say here is: "Subaru-kun, you IDIOT! You lost Sei-chan, but you still have ones to protect!!!" :)
