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 lights
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 boy
Could give you
Take my tears
And that's not
Nearly all
Tainted love
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
You think love
Is to pray
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 boy
Could give you
Take my tears
And that's not
Nearly all
Tainted love
Tainted love

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
Touch me baby
Tainted love
Touch me baby
Tainted love
Touch me baby
Tainted love

Once I ran to you
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
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love
