From the album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret (1981)

Soft Cell are an English synthpop duo who came to prominence in the early 1980s. The duo consisted of vocalist Marc Almond and instrumentalist David Ball. The band are primarily known for their 1981 hit version of “Tainted Love” and their platinum-selling debut album Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret.

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to run away
I’ve got to get away
From the pain you drive into the heart of 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 (I ran)
Now I 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

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 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 (oh)
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love (oh)

Touch me baby, tainted love
Touch me baby, tainted love
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love (oh)
Tainted love
