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

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

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


Don't touch me please 
I cannot stand the way you tease 
I love you though you hurt me so 
Now I'm going to pack my things and go 
Tainted love, tainted love [Repeat x2] 
Touch me baby, tainted love [Repeat x2] 
Tainted love [Repeat x3]
