JOHN MAYALL & THE BLUESBREAKERS
"The Hurt Inside"

You wrestle with your conscience
To free your better self
Did you think for one moment
You could be someone else?

Between a rock and a hard place
Is where you seem to be
You've been caught in a trap
Between the devil and the deep blue sea

The nights were so lonely
And all the tears that you cry
You can't hide
From all the hurt inside

You're in a situation
And pray the time it will pass
But it feels like you're walkin'
Through miles and miles of broken glass

Painted into a corner
Where the sun never shines
Who turned on that spotlight?
You didn't even learn your lines

Baby, deep in your heart
A wound is open wide
No use to be hidin'
From the archin' pain and hurt inside

Think about the hard times
Everybody's been through
But it won't make a difference
About the way that you do

In a blue state of mind
You must search for the light
It's a lie if they tell you
You never hold back the night

Between a rock and a hard place
Is where you'll always be
You're just caught in a trap
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
You're just caught in a trap
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
You're just caught in a trap
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
