"The Crooked Line" as written by Elvis Costello and T-bone Burnett....
Life isn't a game won or tied lost by either side
Then some people's idea of straight and narrow
Didn't appeal to me

If you were my life's companion
As it seems you may turn out to be
I'm contemplating
How I hope I'll find you waiting
At the very end of this crooked line

Love isn't a trial of strength and weakness
Though light into darkness
While some people remark
No worthwhile fire
Ever started without that spark

If you were my life's companion
As it seems you may turn out to be
I'm contemplating
How I hope I'll find you waiting
At the very end of this crooked line
At the very end of this crooked line
At the very end of this crooked line
