TITLE: Killing Me Softly

Lyrics and Chords


Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

/ Em C / D G / Em A / D C / G C / F - E - /

I heard he sang a good song

I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him

And listen for a while

And there he was this young boy

A stranger to my eyes

/ Am7 D / G C / Am7 D / Em - / Am7 D / G B7 /


I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd

I felt he found my letters

And read each one out loud

I prayed that he would finish

But he just kept right on


He sang as if he knew me

In all my dark despair

And then he looked right through me

As if I wasn't there

And he just kept on singing

Singing clear and strong
