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 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
