Sometimes I feel I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
From the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my light
'Cause I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love
Oh, tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

Once I ran to you
Now I'll run from you

This tainted love you've given
I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love
Oh, tainted love

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you but you hurt me so
So I've got to pack my things and go

Once I ran to you
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love
Oh, oh, tainted love
Oh, tainted love
Oh, tainted love
Don't touch me with your tainted love
I don't want this tainted love
Yeah, I quit your tainted love
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
