The Crooked Line

This song is by Elvis Costello and appears on the album Secret, Profane And Sugarcane (2009).

Life isn't a game
Won or tied, lost by either side
Then some people's idea
Of the 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
Through light into darkness
Why some people remark
No worthwhile fire never 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

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
