[Verse 1]
(Am)   Em   Em/G  C       Am/G Am Em Em/G     C
Some - times, I  feel I've got to ...run a - way,
    Am/G Am  Em  Em/G     C
I've got to   ...get a - way,
          Am       Em            Em/G
From the pain you drive into the heart of me,
    Em  Em/G  C   Am/G  Am  Em Em/G  C
The love we share seems to  go no - where,
Am/G  Am  Em  Em/G  C
 And I've lost my light,
Am/G Am Em                     Em/G
 For I toss and turn, I can't sleep at night!


[Chorus]
E                      Em/G
   Once I ran to you,(I ran!) now I run from you,
C
   This tainted love you've given,
   Am
I give you all a boy could give you,
 Am                                  Em
Take my tears, and that's not nearly all,
Em/G           C         Am/G  Am  Em
      Tainted love, (Oh, woh - oh, oh!)
 Em/G     C   Am/G Am
Tainted love!


[Verse 2]
Em  Em/G  C       Am/G Am  Em  Em/G     C
Now  I   know I've got to   ...run a - way,
    Am/G Am  Em  Em/G     C
I've got to   ...get a - way,
Am/G Am     Em            Em/G
You don't really want any more from me,
    Em   Em/G   C
To make things right,
    Am/G  Am    Em        Em/G       C
You need some - one ...to hold you tight,
Am/G Am   Em       Em/G    C
 And you think love is to pray,
Am/G Am   Em            Em/G
 But I'm sorry, I don't pray that way!


[Chorus]
E                      Em/G
   Once I ran to you,(I ran!) now I run from you,
C
   This tainted love you've given,
   Am
I give you all a boy could give you,
 Am                                  Em
Take my tears, and that's not nearly all,
Em/G           C         Am/G  Am  Em
      Tainted love, (Oh, woh - oh, oh!)
 Em/G     C
Tainted love!


[Verse 3]
Am/G  Am    Em  Em/G   C
     Don't touch me, please,
  Am/G  Am   Em       Em/G      C   Am/G
I can - not stand the way you tease-----,
Am  Em                  Em/G    C
 I love you, though you hurt me so,
Am/G Am   Em            Em/G
 Now I'm gonna pack my things and go!


[Coda]
Em   Em/G    C         Am/G  Am  Em
    Tainted love, (Oh, woh - oh, oh!)
