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

Once I ran to you (I ran)
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

Tainted love (Oh oh)
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 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
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 oh)
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 (Oh)
Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love (Oh)

Touch me, baby, tain­ted love
Touch me, baby, tain­ted love

Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love
