Tainted Love Lyrics - The Clash

Review The Song (6)



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 light
For I toss and turn I can't sleep at night

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
Oh...tainted love
Tainted love

Now I know I've got to
sponsored links
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
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
Oh...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 (x2)
Touch me baby, tainted love (x2)
Tainted love (x3)

Creature Feature Song? | Reviewer: Rapplescallion | 9/21/09

When I first heard this song, it was on a CD my buddy gave me and was (supposedly) by Creature Feature... I wanted to look up the lyrics, but aparently there is no CF version? Apparently it's been done by multiple times, but is there a Creature Feature version?



Not a clash song.. | Reviewer: monkey | 2/16/09

Nope. The Clash *NEVER* did this song. Definately not a released version. I can find no evidence anywhere that The Clash ever did this song in concert or otherwise.. the wikipedia article was most likely corrected because of this error. It's wrong on a lot of places on the net - mostly the robot lyrics sites. If someone could correct me, i'd appreciate it.

Yes, The Clash made a version of this song. Yes, it was unreleased. Yes, you can find it. No, they were not the first. Yes,the band produced a cover of its original version (who hasn't?). Yes, Soft Cell does this song. However, it too is a cover. The original is by Gloria Jones. Now thats the real story. You can confirm any of this information by looking it up yourself.



About the song Tainted Love performed by The Clash | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/13/07

Actually the clash did sing "Tainted Love". It was an unreleased song. You can find that version on radioblogclub.com and information about them singing it is on wikipedia.

Read up. :)



Um no. | Reviewer: Jacq | 6/29/07

You are a fucking retard whoever posted those lyrics. This song is by Soft Cell. I hate when people say it was by The Clash. Yah, the clash is cool, but that doesn't fix the fact that your stupid little mistakes like this will result in you never getting laid. Aloha.



correction | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/30/07

the song was never sung by "the clash", this was a polar opposite to their style. it was performed by "Soft Cell," a fantastic one-hit wonder. and the last line sounds like "I love you though you're ugly so", but if you listen to a CD on decent speakers, you realize it is actually "I love you though you hurt me so". I know, i made the same mistake as a kid and figured it out as an adult.
