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
[LAURYN]
One time, One time, (one time) hey yo L you know you got the lyrics
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, stranger to my eyes,
Strumming my pain with his fingers,
(one time,one time)
Singing my life with his words,
(two times. two times)
Killing me softly with this song,
Killing me softly,
With his song, telling my whole life,
With his words,
Killing me softly with his song.
I felt all flushed with fever,
Embarrassed by the crowd,
I felt he found my letters then read each one out loud.
I prayed that he would finish,
But he just kept right on-
Strumming my pain with his fingers, (One Time, one time!)
Singing my life with his words, (Two Times, two times!)
Killing me softly with his song,
Killing me softly
With his song,
Tellin' my whole life
With his words,
Killing me softly, with his song
[CLEF]
Yo L-Boogie, boy L boy L, take it to the bridge
[LAURYN]
(busted)
Wooahhh......woooooahh.....la la la la la la ....wooooah.. laaaaahhh... woooah..laaaaahhh Ah ah Ah ah Ah ah Ah
Strumming my pain with his fingers,
Yes he was 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.
[Lauryn fading out]
Strummin' my pain
YEAAA yea yeaaaaa
[Wyclef]
Yo,put cha hands together for l L boogie yah yaey yaey

[shoutouts and fade]
