The song "Desperado" by the Eagles uses the lifestyle of a cowboy who never settles in one place to parallel the lives of most people, who feel like they will settle down later. The song pleads for people to reach out and except the flaws of those they know and stop trying to want only what they can't have. The song also preaches to let the greed of material possessions go and focus more on the value that love and other people can bring into your life. The hardest part is to make up your mind and stop riding fences.
