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
For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night
Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
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 (I ran)
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh, 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 gonna pack my things and go (things and go....)
Tainted love (tainted love...)
Run away (run away....)
I need someone (I need someone....)
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
