Crooked Man Lyrics

Crooked Man - Susan Ashton

 

So cold touch his heart

And there's a chance you could freeze

 

Steel soul keep your distance

Or be ready to bleed

 

He was good at the bait and hook

He was really good at push and shove

 

He believed in whatever it took

And whatever it took it was never enough

Well there was a crooked man

And he walked a crooked mile

Lived a crooked life

Behind a crooked smile

Goodness like an arrow

Lodges where it can

But it never pierces

The heart of a crooked man

 

Justify

 

When justice wouldn't pay the toll

 

Subtle lies

When the truth was better half than whole

 

Driven by an insatiable lust

For power that was just out of reach

 

Living on an illusion of trust

With a steady dose of control and greed

Well there was a crooked man

And he walked a crooked mile

Lived a crooked life

Behind a crooked smile

Goodness like an arrow

Lodges where it can

But it never pierces

The heart of a crooked man

 

Some life

 

Nobody came to say goodbye

 

Slow ride

For the author of his own demise

 

No one had much good to say

Some were glad that he was finally gone

 

His legacy was cold and gray

Like the mocking words that were carved in stone

Say there was a crooked man

And he walked a crooked mile

Lived a crooked life

Behind a crooked smile

Goodness like an arrow

Lodges where it can

But it never pierces the heart no it never

Never pierces the heart of a crooked man

 

No

 

Was a crooked man

Walked a crooked mile

 

 

Oh such a crooked man
