Capo 3rd fret

    Em    G C         Am
Sometimes I feel I've got to 
Em G    C         Am
   Run away, I've got to
Em G    C            Am            Em             G
   Get away from the pain that 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

Em
Once I ran to you (I ran)
G
Now I'll run from you
C
This tainted love you've given
  Am
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
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 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
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, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love (fade out)
