Me First And The Gimme Gimmes – Tainted Love lyrics

[Originally by Gloria Jones]
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
And I toss and turn
I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you give me
I gave 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
Anymore from me
To make things right
You need someone
To hold you tight
And you think love is a game
But I'm sorry I don't play that way

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you give me
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears
And that's not nearly all
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love

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've gotta pack my things and go
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love
Tainted love
