As rec by LEE WILEY: Is there anyone around who cannot see It's the well known runaround you're givin' me I suppose you'll tell me I'm all wrong It's a bitter pill to take, coming from you Though I've made a big mistake, what can I do I don't know what makes me string along..... 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 knockin' at my door Fate seems to give my heart a twist I come runnin, 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 'Cause I should hate you But I guess I love you You've got me in between The devil and the deep blue sea (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2012)
