I don't want you

But I hate to lose you

You've got me in between

The devil and the deep blue sea

 

I forgive you

'Cause I can't forget you

You've got me in between

The devil and the deep blue sea

 

I ought to cross you off my list

But when you come a-knocking at my door

Fate seems to give my heart a twist

And I come running back for more

 

I should hate you

But I guess I love you

You've got me in between

The devil and the deep blue sea
