Tainted Love - Dave Phillips & The Hot Rod Gang

Tainted Love

Dave Phillips & The Hot Rod Gang

(Ed Cobb, Rockhouse, 1982)

Well, some times I feel I've got to run away
I've got to get away from the pain
You're drivin' to lovin' me
The love we share, seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my life
For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night
Once I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you're givin'
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not really all
Tainted love, tainted love
And now I know I've got to run away
I've got to get away
You don't really want anymore from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
You think love is to pray
But I'm sorry, I can't pray that way
Once I ran to you, now I run from you
This tainted love you're givin'
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not really all
Tainted love, tainted love
(Now git it! Go!)

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
And I loved you though you hurt me so
So I'm gonna pack my things and go
The love we share, seems to go nowhere
And I've lost my life
For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love, tainted love
Tainted love
