Tainted Love
Soft Cell Lyrics


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 (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
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 (whoa, oh, 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 (whoa, oh, 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 (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Tainted love (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Tainted love (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Tainted love (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Touch me, baby, tainted love
Touch me, baby, tainted love
Tainted love (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Tainted love (whoa, oh, oh, oh)
Tainted love

LYRICS

[iNTRO]

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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
Oh, tainted love
Tainted love

[Verse 2]
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

[Chorus]
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
Oh, tainted love
Tainted love

[Bridge]
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

[Chorus]
Tainted love, oh, tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh, tainted love, oh

[Outro]
Touch me, baby, tainted love
Touch me, baby, tainted love
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love



Homer Simpson

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)
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)
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
Tainted love










Say "thank" to me later

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

Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Oh tainted love

Juan Camacho

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
Oh, tainted love
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
Oh, tainted love
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 going to pack my things and go

Tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh

Touch me, baby
Tainted love (tainted love)
Touch me, baby
Tainted love (tainted love)

Tainted love, oh
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love
Tainted love

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
And the love we share
Seems to go nowhere
I've lost my light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night
Once I ran to you (I ran)

I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
Run away

Get away
You don't really want anymore 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 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

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
But now I'm gonna pack my things and go
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I 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
(Ooh) Tainted love
(Ooh) Tainted love
(Ooh) Tainted love

i can’t believe this masterpiece turns 40

bullchunks

Lordy Lordy look who’s 40

TheGronne

Did you know this is a cover?

Ben Vasilinda

The original version was done in 1964 but I know ur just referring to this version. Ed Cobb must be enjoying all the royalties over the years from all the cover versions and radio play.

Dark Prince90

It came out 1980?!

Lucas Eller

And it's timeless, everyone has loved it for 4 decades.
