Skinny Puppy – Tainted Love lyrics

Sometimes I feel I got to,
Run away (run away)
I've got to,
Get away (get away)
From the pain you you drive through 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 given
Takes my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted Love, Tainted Love.

Now I Know I've got to
Run Away (run away)
I've got to
Get away (get away)
You don't really want anymore from me
To make things right (things right)
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think I have enough to play
But sorry I don't play that way


Don't touch me please
I can't stand the way you tease
You hurt me so and now I'm gunna pack my things and go

Tainted Love, Tainted Love.
