Colbie Caillat – Killing Me Softly lyrics

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The most brilliant version of this song. ♥
    The song is kinda broad. One has to sit down and think beyond the simple lyrics. The dominating factor is that the one singing is in great pain.
    I think it talks about a woman who felt a sudden strong emotion for a young guy or a guy his age but then the guy pretended to love her at first then later n revealed that he was not really into her. The critical part I think is when the woman still believes that the songs the guy sing are still for her but she know they are but songs with empty meaning.
    Just an opinion.
