I don't want you but I hate to lose you
You 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 want to cross you off my list
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

I want to cross you off my list
But every time you come back knocking at my door
Fate seems to give my heart a twist
And I come crawling back for more

I still should hate you but I guess, I gotta love you
You got me sort of hung up between
The devil and the deep blue sea

Devil and the deep blue sea
Devil and the deep blue sea, yeah
Devil and the deep blue sea
