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 light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you (I'll run)
This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away I've got to
Get away
You don't really want it any more from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you'll think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you (I'll run)
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
Oh, tainted love

Don't touch me please (don't touch me please)
I cannot stand the way you tease (can't stand the way you tease)
Don't touch me please (don't touch me please)
Well I cannot stand the way you tease (can't stand the way you tease)

I love you but you hurt me so
Now I'm gonna pack my bags and go
I'm gonna pack my things and
I'm gonna pack my things and
I'm gonna pack my things
I'm gonna pack my things and-
Go!
Don't touch me please
I cannot stand
The way you tease me...
I love you
Though you hurt me so...
Now I'm gonna pack my things
And go...
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love...
