"Tainted Love" as written by and E. Cobb....
Well sometimes I feel I've got to
Runaway
I've got to
Get away
From the pain you driving to love me

The love we shared
Seemed to go no where
And I lost my life
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given

I give you all a boy can give you
Take my tears and thats not nearly all!

Well sometimes I feel I've got to
Runaway
I've got to
Get away
From the pain you driving to love me

The love we shared
Seemed to go no where
And I lost my life
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy can give you
Take my tears and thats not nearly all!

Tainted Love (whoa-oh)
Tainted Love

Now I know I've got to
Runaway
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 they say love is to play
Well I'm sorry I don't play that way

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy can give you
Take my tears and thats not nearly all!

Tainted love (whoa-oh)
Tainted love

(Alright!)

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
And I love you though you hurt me so
So I'm gonna pack my things and go

The love we shared
Seemed to go no where
And I lost my life
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy can give you
Take my tears and thats not nearly all!

Tainted Love (whoa-oh)
Tainted Love (whoa-oh)
Tainted Love (whoa-oh)
Tainted Love

    General CommentI think it's just about a girl who uses him?
    I don't know what Tainted means, so that would probably tell us what the song meant. ..

    Aside from that, I love the song!
    Especially when Lee sung it on Idol!
