Tainted Love Lyrics

by Soft Cell

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
now I'll run from you

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 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,
now I'll run from you,

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.

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.
Tainted love - tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love - tainted love
