[A]   [C]   [F]   [C]
Some- [A] times [C] I [F] feel I've [C] got to
[A] [C] Run a- [F] way I've [C] got to
[A] [C] Get a- [F] way from the [C] pain that you
[A] drive into the [C] heart of [E7] me

The [A] love [C] we [F] share [C] seems to
[A] [C] Go no- [F] where [C] and I've
[A] Lost [C] my [F] light, [C] for I
[A] Toss and turn; I can't [C] sleep at [E7] night

[A] Once I ran to you
[C] Now I'll run from you
[F] This tainted love you've given
[D] I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly [A] all...
[A] [C] Tainted [F] love [C]
[A] [C] Tainted [F] love [C]

[A] Now [C] I [F] know I've [C] got to
[A] [C] Run a- [F] way I've [C] got to
[A] [C] Get a- [F] way [C] you don't
[A] Really want any [C] love from [E7] me

To [A] make [C] things [F] right you [C] need
Some- [A] one to [C] hold you [F] tight, [C] and you'll
[A] Think love [C] is to [F] play, [C] but,
I'm [A] sorry; I don't [C] pray that [E7] way.

[A] Once I ran to you (I ran!)
[C] Now I'll run from you (I'll run!)
[F] This tainted love you've given
[D] I give you all a girl could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly [A] all...

[A] Oh... [C] tainted [F] love[C]
[A] [C] Tainted [F] love [C]
Don't [A] touch [C] me [F] please; [C] I cannot
[A] Stand the [C] way you [F] tease [C]

[A] love you, though you [C] hurt me [F] so [C] Now I'm
[A] gonna pack my [C] things and [E7] go

[A] Oh... [C] tainted [F] love [C]
[A] Oh... [C] tainted [F] love [C]
[A] Oh... [C] tainted [F] love [C]
[A] Oh... [C] tainted [F] love [C]
