Killing Me Softly

By: Roberta Flack [1]
Em Am
Strumming my pain with his fingers
D7 G
Singing my life with his words
Em A
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Am7 Am7 E E
Killing me softly with his song
Am7 D G C
I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style
Am7 D Em Em
And so I came to see him and listen for a while
Am7 D7 G B7
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes
Am7 D G C
I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
Am7 D Em Em
I felt he found my letters, and read each one out loud
Am7 D7 G B7
I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on
Am7 D G C
He sang as if he knew me, in all my dark despair
Am7 D Em Em
And then he looked right through me, as if I wasn't there
Am7 D7 G B7
And he just kept on singing, singing clear and strong
