Capo on 3rd fret

    Am    C  F        Dm
Sometimes I feel I've got to 
Am C    F         Dm
   Run away, I've got to
Am C    F            Dm            Am             C
   Get away from the pain you drive into the heart of me
    Am   C  F    Dm
The love we share seems to
Am C F     Dm
go nowhere and I've
Am   C  F      Dm
lost my light, for I
Am                     C
toss and turn, I can't sleep at night

Am
Once I ran to you (I ran)
C
Now I run from you
F
The tainted love you've given
  Dm
I give you all a girl can give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Am C        F  Dm
    Tainted love
Am C        F  Dm
  Tainted love

Now I know I've got to run away, I've got to get away
You don't really want any love from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And you think love is to play
Well I'm sorry, I don't play that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you
The tainted love you've given
I give you all a girl can give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Tainted love
Tainted love
Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you, though you hurt me so
If I do not pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love (fade out)
