Commissioned for the french film terminus.

You are my only confidant
And my only friend
Together we will share everything
Until the very end

Chorus:
There's no one here who shares my views
Or sees the way I can see
But there's just one thing that you'll understand
You'll have to even up with me
At the end of the line (x2)



I've bet it all before
But not everything I own
There are some things that you can't buy or steal
Or learn to leave alone


Chorus repeat last line x4


I toss the dice and skin the cat
And I always pay the fine
So we'll settle up even-steven
When we reach the end of the line


Hey, I hear you calling me back home
To fly or fall to the news of it all
There's no dark destiny
Fate will receive what our love will believe
'til we reach the end of the line


Chorus repeat last line x10
