Theories of Relativity


‘Tainted Love’ came on my iPod earlier and I felt I could relate to a pile of the lyrics.  Ummm, granted I can’t claim to ‘love’,  I guess I lust or like or something similar to that.  But whatever the case, I could relate to the song more than I can claim to have done so in the past.  Lyrics as follows:

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
Run away I’ve got to
Get away
From the pain that you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
I’ve lost my lights
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
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
You think love is to pray
I’m sorry I don’t pray that way


Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I’m going to pack my things and go
Touch me baby, tainted love


MobSCENE also came on later, and I LOVE that song.  Not for lyrics, but just because it has a very unique sound.  I cannot claim to be a die-hard Manson fan, but once in awhile I find he hits it out of the park.

And yes, I am aware that Soft Cell did the original version of this song, not Manson. 😛
