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
