[Verse 1]
Sometimes, I feel I've got to run away
I've got to get away
From the pain you drive in 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, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

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
Need someone to hold you tight
And you'll think love is to pray
But I'm sorry, I don't pray that way

[Chorus]
Once, I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

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

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

[Chorus]
Once, I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

Tainted love
Tainted love

Tainted Love (Soft Cell Cover) Lyrics

Marilyn Manson – Tainted Love (Soft Cell Cover) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes, I feel I've got to run away
I've got to get away
From the pain you drive in 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, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

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
Need someone to hold you tight
And you'll think love is to pray
But I'm sorry, I don't pray that way

[Chorus]
Once, I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

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

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

[Chorus]
Once, I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you've given
I'll give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all

Tainted love
Tainted love
