You’re my heart heart heart heart heartbreaker

It was written and produced by Teddy and G-Dragon. “Crooked” was described as a “synth-up, deliriously catchy pop-punk” with a “neon-bright” sound. G-Dragon mixed the rap with singing in this track. The producer, Teddy Park, said, “We felt like the album had a lot of trap music, some R&B records, and some club tracks. But GD’s like a punk rocker at the same time. He raps and shit, but he really loves that whole punk attitude. So we needed a track that could express that.” The lyrics of “Crooked” are about a man “full of angst and despair” who demands to be left alone as he spends the night “like a ‘crooked-minded person,’ because, in the end, he’s alone and doesn’t need anyone’s ‘sugarcoated sympathy.'”

Lyrics of “Crooked”

Nothing ever lasts forever
In the end, you changed
There is no reason, no sincerity
Take away such a thing as love
Tonight I’ll be crooked
Leave me alone
I was alone anyway
I have no one, everything is meaningless
Take away the sugar-coated comfort
Tonight I’ll be crooked
