Our Tainted Love©

For just a moment

I need your attention

So I can reveal my sorrow

I didn’t mean to hurt you

Certainly not to banish you far away

I did send you packing

Hoping you really wouldn’t go

I can’t believe you didn’t notice

My hesitation during your last glance

I spent this whole time hoping

That you would return to me some day

Telling me how much you needed me

That your heart could no longer be happy

Unless we were to be as one

Tonight

I hope our tainted love can be revived

For my heart has sat in darkness since you’ve been gone

In your absence I’ve lived in the shadows of everyone elses love

Now it’s our turn

Wont you please return your love to me
